Wifi not working anymore after Firmware Update

[ New ]


Hey there,


I recently updated my go pro Hero from Version 2.xx to the newest Version.

Since then the Wifi is not working anymore. 

Version.txt shows the information below.


When i do a new Firmware Update with Firmware + WLAN Update, i receive the message WLAN Update failed.

I also factory resetted the camera, did Firmware only Updates, WLAN Only Updates - nothing seems to help.


"info version":"1.1",
"firmware version":"HD3.11.03.03",
"wifi version":"",
"wifi bootloader version":"0.0.0",
"wifi mac":"000000000000",
"camera type":"HERO3+ Black Edition",
"camera serial number":"XXXXXXXXXXXX", (redacted)


Any Idea how to fix that? :)


Kind regards

If this happened with an update, then there may have been an issue with the installation of the firmware on your GoPro. Try doing a manual firmware update using the instructions at

I already tried a manual update via sdcard with all three possibilities ( firmware only, wifi only, firmware + wifi) several times with and without camera reset. I always get a "wifi update failed, contact support".

Any other suggestions?
