What do SSID and WPA2 mean?

SSID is simply the technical term for a network name. When you set up a wireless home network, you give it a name to distinguish it from other network in your neighborhood. WPA2 is a standard for wireless security. Your WPA2 key is an alpha-numeric security password that is required to access your network. Anyone without this password cannot access your Internet connection.

Find your Wi-Fi password

If you are setting up the Wi-Fi, you need to type your Wi-Fi password to complete the Wi-Fi setup. You need to connect the camera to your router with the included network cable, so that you can tell the camera what your wireless name and it's password is. The Wi-Fi password is also known as the WPA Key or wireless key and they are case sensitive.

Most likely your wireless network was set up with a password. If you don’t remember it, you can check your router’s wireless setup menu or ask the person who set up your wireless network. You can also get the password from network settings on your computer which has connected your wireless network.

Please remember that both WPA and WPA2 keys are case sensitive and need to be between 8 and 63 characters. When you have entered the key, click on "Apply", you'll get a message about "Wireless setup accepted successfully", but that only means that the information was stored in the camera. Now you should use the "Test" feature to check if you typed it correctly. If the test reports "Success!" you can remove the network cable and the camera should work wireless after a short delay. If the test reports "no wireless connection", please double check the WPA key you typed.
