Re: Auto upload won't connect to my wifi network?

Hi - tried the above suggestion - and was is working - yes and no.

 

After resetting - parring went fine (also did before ;-) but had the same issue with finding my network... 

 

Used 30 min with continued re-search for networks and suddenly it displayed and I could connect. Thereafter autoupload worked without any issues.

 

For sure still not good enough for at highend product.

 

Cheers, Steen

Re: Auto upload won't connect to my wifi network?

[ Edited ]

I'm able to see all of the wireless networks okay, but when I try to enter a password, it claims "network authentication error" afterward.  Does anyone have any experience with this specific error?  My Hero 6 Black has no issues with Bluetooth/WiFi pairing.

 

Also, as a test case, I create a "Hotspot" on my phone, and pair the camera to that with a very basic password, and that appears to work.

 

My two routers are both Airport Extreme (current edition) with the latest firmware updates.  SSID is broadcasting, no MAC address filtering.  WPA2 Personal security.

 

Also, I have reset my camera to Factory Defaults, cleared all the settings in the app, and even logged out and back in again on the GoPro app.

 

I am paying for GoPro Plus.
