If you are referring to auto selection in my router ...then that would be no. I have changed the channels numerous times over the past few months to try and get a cearer channel. It seems that no channel provides me with an relief.

I tend to refrain from the auto channel but I am tempted to go back to it.

Curious. Is the camera still connecting using 802.11 b/g?

I am wondering, if maybe your Router/AP users manual goes into how to define a SSID specifically for 802.11 b/g only, without supporting 802.11 n vs. only 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz?

Worse case, I suppose, for testing, you could force your Router/AP into 802.11 b/g only, to see if that makes any difference.

I can try that but this is a brand new router.......This really should not happen with these cameras. For it to drop off all the time and then have to constantly search for an adjustment within the router makes the camera much more trouble than it is worth.

The camera is pretty expensive to make you work just to keep it connected. I have wasted countless hours trying to make this work. There is something inherently wrong with that.

When do we resign ourselves to say that the wireless aspect of this camera is just plain poor quality.

I agree. But sadly. In order to try and isolate issues like this, in many cases, it may require some testing. The only other option is to leave things as they are. Which of course, is your choice.

I understand....as any consumer....you have to expect it to work and it does not. I will keep trying. I do not recall a loction in my router interface that allows you to change the wireless to b/n etc...

ASUS RT-AC66R ROUTER

I think the Router/AP Users Manual would go into details about possible settings for this.

What wireless channel are you on and could there be other nearby wireless networks on or near that channel?
