Lot of devices are having issues connecting with the last several builds. Until it's fixed the workaround is to disable WMM.
If this causes problems for other wireless devices on your network you can create a VAP (Virtual Access Point aka Guest Network) with WMM disabled and use it specifically for your camera.


Yippy, drivers still not fixed I guess. So glad I moved on and sold my wrt1900acs v1 and wrt3200acm. Current network with Unifi Security Gateway as router and Netgear r7800 with Voxel as AP just work. Plus you can lots of traffic info from the Unifi.

That is not a very encouraging reply. Are you suggesting to get rid of dd-wrt routers?

Do you have any idea when this issue will get fixed? Can some one help here?

Only Belkin/Linksys/Marvel can answer your question about when will the issue be fixed as it is up to them to provide a good driver binary blob to the 3rd party devs.

Well I owned a wrt1900ac v1 when they came out as it was supposed to be "3rd party ready" and lived through driver fiasco with it then not yet learning got a wrt1900acs v1 again driver issues, then still not caught on got a wrt3200acm when they came out. Things were so bad back then that folks including myself would run the Linksys firmware on the wrt3200 to get some network stability.

Belkin/Linksys/Marvel have never provided the 3rd party devs a good driver blob it would seem. Having seen what I have with the WRT's I do not know how I can be encouraging about them. I have sold mine and tell anyone who asks not to get one. Having seen how badly Linksys supports the 3rd party folks on a 3rd party ready router I would not purchase any of their products.

I am not biased against dd-wrt, have run it on various routers since 2006 starting with a Linksys wrt54g.

Thanks for these interesting details. I was seriously thinking of moving to pfsense based systems ( with LinkSys as AP ) because of these issues. (Also seems this router is not powerful enough for openvpn client ). I posted here as a last attempt to get a solution and to avoid another investment for pfsense hardware.

I am curious to know why you chose USG. Is it powerful enough to run openvpn client for 100Mbps download speed?

I just bought an Amazon Cloud Cam and ran into the same issue. I got mine working using my DD-WRT flashed router by upgraded my DD-WRT firmware with the lasted beta firmware: ddwrt-linksys-wrt3200acm-webflash.bin dated 2018-12-31 and also changing the Wireless Security Settings: Wireless Tab > Wireless Security Tab > Security Mode-=WPA - Select both WPA Personal and WPA2 Personal.
In older versions of teh DD-WRT firmware the Wireless Security Settings are in a drop down instead of individual clickable boxes. You will need to select the Network Authentication that allows both WPA2 and WPA to function.
It seems the Amazon Cloud Camera ships with only connecting with WPA. After updating the camera, I was able to disable WPA and leave WPA2 enabled and the camera still functions fine.
