How to evaluate your home wireless network
Evaluate your wireless network
Are cameras having trouble with wireless? You may want to consider upgrading your wireless network.
Let’s do a basic evaluation of your home wireless network. First, I would recommend comparing your network speed with your wireless speed.
- Run a speed test from a laptop or desktop connected to your router with a wired connection. http://www.speedtest.net/
- Compare this value to your wireless network apps like “Speed Test” to see if you have enough available data in the area you would like to set the camera.
- Test your network range
- What is your download speed in the same room as your wireless router?
- What is the download speed in the location you are trying to install the camera?
- Is there a significant drop?
What to upgrade?
- If your wired connection is too slow to reach the bandwidth requirements of the camera you may need to consider upgrading your internet service.
- If you have a significant drop in data when testing a wireless connection in the same room as your router, you may want to consider upgrading to a router that can provide higher data transmission speeds
- If you see a significant drop in data when testing in the area you want to install your camera you can either look for an upgraded router that will offer additional range or you can expand your router range with a signal booster.
How to check and install firmware updates
Firmware updates ensure our new features will work 100% for your camera It is a good idea to install them when you see they are available.
