Although I had no problem with a hard wire connection on my new PTZ cam, the wireless feature simply would not work. I spent countless hours with network & firewall config and multiple reboots/resets on the cam with no luck. And then I read something in here that at first made me laugh, but sure enough it worked.
It appears that the antenna must be mounted in a completely horizontal position. After I rotated the antenna to this position, bingo, my wireless picked it up. Turn it back up and wireless is lost. I have several other older Linksys cams on this network that I tested right next to the new PTZ and had no problems so its not access point distance problems.
The PTZ still has some intermittent loss of wireless connection but at least it tested OK this time. Is anyone aware of antenna problems with this cam and can anyone suggest a resolve to the problem with the intermittent signal loss.
