Video Troubleshooting Wizard

The Video Troubleshooting Wizard guides you through basic steps for bringing your video devices back online after they become disconnected. These troubleshooting steps include:

  • Power-cycling the video device
  • Power-cycling the router
  • Re-configuring wireless information

The Video Troubleshooting Wizard can identify the type of video device and provide device-specific advice depending on the situation. It can also detect and notify you when the device comes back online during the troubleshooting process. For more information about general troubleshooting for a disconnected video device, see How can a camera be reconnected to a Wi-Fi network if the router, network equipment, or wireless settings change?.
