Re: Apps won't detect base station
Solved! Go to Solution.
We continued playing with it after I posted and made a change to the DHCP settings and were suddenly able to detect the base station. Up and running now. Might want to note that just because the internet connection light is green doesn't mean you won't need to tweak router settings.
Very glad to hear you got it working Etymomel!
Could you detail what changes you made to the DHCP settings? This may help others who find themselves in the same situation you did... Thank you.
Ensure that the base station is connected wired to your network with internet access. For more information and troubleshooting, kindly check this article.
Hope this helps!
Try using a laptop connected with an RJ45 cable direct to your home router rather than through the ios app. I did this and it all worked fine. At the beginning I couldn't get my iphone to 'see' the netgear router at all. Good luck.
To be clear, either an Ethernet cable or WiFi will work to set up the base station and account as lo g as everything is on the same network/router. Cell service won't work.
This is what i did and it worked perfect!
I only tested this on iphone and ipad. I had no PC or MAC at home.
When i tried with only the arlo app it didn´t work.
Could not find base station at all.
This is what i did when the arlo app didn´t detect my base station at first setup.
I downloaded "puffin browser" from app store.
Then i opened https://arlo.netgear.com/#/login
From there everything was working instantly.
I have no clue but it works perfect!
I had the exact same problem but solved it by logging into the system and registering via my desktop pc. Once I had done this my phone app was up and running once I'd logged in. You cannot log in to the system from both at the same time, but it logs you out automatically from the one you are not using so there are no conflicts. I think this system is perfect.
I had to download the unsigned version of Arlo to create an account then able to login and see footage,
But I sorted this last week
Thats where i downloaded it from but its not letting me sign in again
Keep saying email not recognised
This happened before when tthe Arlo camera's 1st came out and i had to use a unsigned version of the app but cant find it abywhere
Try logging into your account via a laptop or pc to make sure you can actually get into your account and see footage. My signed app updated a few days ago (android) and works fine, that could be where your problem lies. Have you tried uninstaling the unsigned app and installing a signed one, that might be where the block comes from? Maybe the update has shut you out.
Iv already uninstalled the app and cleared cache & data
I can log in my account fine on Laptop always have done,
Like i say i had this problem when they 1st came out and seem to be having it again for some reason
P.S i'm quite tech savvy too so all troubleshooting has been done already
Thanks for reply
It may be a worth a shot to try to install the app onto a friends' phone and try logging in from there. If it works, then you will know the problem lies with your phone. At least this will narrow down the problem area. I'm tech savvy too and am only trying to suggest solutions. If one works then it may help others.
I had the same issue, tried everything. Then by going into http://arlo.com/login and setting up via Windows Internet Explorer I could manage to setup my system instantly. Then just logged in from my phone and everything is fine then. I hope that helps ...
