|I've had specific issues with the DD-WRT router with standard china smart devices like bulbs and switches, where I pair them and the router reboots. EVERYTIME.
I have updated firmware multiple times, but once it reboots and pairs, everything works fine so I've moved on. but I noticed other odd wi-fi issues where it would act like there's no internet, but all the wired devices are fine, so I completely disabled the Wi-Fi part of the DD-WRT router and added a separate Wi-Fi (non-DDWRT) access point. That literally solved the weird intermittent no internet on WiFi issue.
Now my question:
I've been using Wyze Cams at my home for some time.
My current setup is a Netgear WINDR router with DD-WRT v3 with WiFi DISABLED. A hard-wired a separate non-DD-WRT WiFi router with no routing functions.
The Wyze Cams have HUGE issues connecting when I'm on another network, especially on my cellular carrier's network. It occasionally connects but sometimes takes 10-15 retries and 10 minutes to get it to finally connect.
Whenever my phone is on the same network as the cams, everything is happy and works great.
The other day, I put a Wyze cam on another remote WiFi system (not my DDWRT router at home) and had ZERO issues connecting to it both on the same network and with my phone on it's cell carrier network.
But as soon as I came home and tried connecting through my home DD-WRT system to the remote Wyze Cam, I had the same trouble connecting.
So, to me it seems that there's some issue that is causing unreliable connections to the Wyze cams.
Has anybody else dealt with this?
