As you can see the steps are very simple, but be aware that the Wyze Cam doesn't work with on 5GHz Wi-Fi networks so you must use the 2.4GHz.

Don't worry, if you have a router that works with 5GHz network it also can operate on the 2.4GHz, you just need to enable it to work on both frequencies.

Here's how to change the WiFi Settings

Just in case you cant see the 2.4GHz network while trying to set up your Wyze Cam WiFi, log into your router and change the wireless configuration.

That menu should be different depending on the router you are using but you can find the "Network Mode" setup or something similar on any WiFi router.

Make sure you have more than one mode of operation such as Wireless A/B/G for example (A is for the 5.4GHz and B and G works with the 2.4GHz)

As long as you have your router configured like that you will be able to set up your Wyze Cam Wifi for a new network.
