Weak wireless signal from Hikvision DS-2CD2532F-IWS

Recommended Posts

I have just installed a Hikvision DS-2CD2532F-IWS but the wifi signal is very weak though it has a short distance from its outside location to the router.


I do not have a LAN connection possibility which was the main reason for buying this particular camera.


I have tried to add a wifi extender (TPLINK extender) near the camera but then I cannot access from the Internet as the portforwarding from the router then does not work as it goes through the extender.

I have changed the cannel for the wifi in the router which helped a little.

I am considering whether I can add an Wireless access point to improve the signal but is it possible to get portforwarding to work via a WAP?


Or any idea of what I can do? Thanks!

I am using that latest version of Fritzbox 7490 and it runs 802.11n+g+b 2,4GHz and

802.11n+ac 5,0 GHz. The camera connects to the 2,4 GHz.
