Re: Cannot connect with S/N

Hi Jack, Thanks for the reply. I thought of that about the server being down too. But this morning, I can switch my phone back and forth between cell and wifi (same LAN as the camera) and it works right away on wifi and not at all on cell data. And yet: my other phone (no SIM, wifi only) won't work ...

Re: Cannot connect with S/N

Hi Jack,
Thanks. Yeah I wondered about that. But just now: I can switch my phone back and forth from cell to wifi (same LAN the camera is on) and it connects fine on wifi, not at all on cell. And: it won't connect at all on my other phone which only has wifi.

Re: Cannot connect with S/N

Well it's working, sorta. But for half an hour tonight in a restaurant, I was unable to connect. At home again (where the camera currently is) I tried for 10 minutes or so to connect with either phone, one via cell data, the other via wifi in the same LAN as the camera. I rebooted the camera and the...

Re: Cannot connect with S/N

Folks, thanks for the help, it's working now. Not entirely clear why. I had the S/N corrupted for a bit, fixed that, reinstalled the app at least once more, still no joy, reinstalled again, then it started working. I was using my LAN at that moment, so I reinstalled and tried again from scratch on c...

Re: Cannot connect with S/N

Thanks for replying. I want to do exactly what you said after, "if I knew the password..." It doesn't work for me. Read my msg from "So I go to Device Manager..." That's how I try to do it. Is that how you would do this? Yes it acts like I'm trying to create the camera anew, aski...

The second, call it “TM”, is a TMobile phone with real cell service. I installed Amcrest View Pro on VZ and used that to install the webcam u...
