You don't need to log into that network (and in fact you can't).  That network is closed - and only used by the cameras.  The base station is connected with ethernet to your routers, and you access https://my.arlo.com (or the apps) on your normal network when you are home.

Thanks for that. Helpful. But still the new app can't find the devices that work perfectly well with the old app.

Brook-Spencer,

 

You don't need to reclam, readd or do any new setup when you download the new app. Simply install the new mobile app and use the same credentials that you used to login with the legacy app and all of your devices will still be present.

You do need a subscription for the ultra.  Did you have the trial subscription before?  If so, did you check to see if that was still attached to your account?

How do I know if I still have a subscription ?

Go into the web client (https://my.arlo.com) on a PC, and look in settings.  You'll see subscription on the right.

 

If it shows a subscription, then click on it.  Scroll down to "manage camera status" and make sure that your ultra is active.
