There can be a host of issues related to your Blink camera setup. While you are trying so hard to get done with the same, petty issues like Blink camera not connecting to wifi may distract you a lot. Though the most probable reason why you are facing this issue is network disconnection, it is important to know the steps to troubleshoot the same.
This blog will walk you through the steps to troubleshoot issues related to Blink camera not connecting to wifi error and blink camera login and setup.
Reasons For Blink Camera Not Connecting To WiFi
There can be three reasons as to why your Blink Camera is not connecting to the wireless network. These are:
- Your wireless network isn’t discoverable
- You are using the wrong network access credentials
- There’s no internet connection at all
In all these cases, you’ll need to recheck the network details and use the correct ones so your blink camera can connect and begin recording views.
What To Do About Network Discovery?
Make sure the wireless router/range extender you are using has the network discovery feature enabled. If you have it disabled, you’ll need to enable the same so your Blink camera can detect the network and connect to it. To enable the Network discovery option, you’ll need to visit the web management page of your networking device and enable it from there. After your Blink camera is done connecting to the network, you can disable the feature again. Now retry connecting your Blink camera with the network using the Blink camera app.
About Using The Wrong Network Credentials
The network credentials are the ones that you use to connect to the network. And if you are using the wrong ones, you’ll not be able to access the same. If you are getting an error with the blink home security interface everytime you are trying to connect to the network, make sure you double check the password you are using. Type in the correct password and try connecting your Blink camera again to the network. If you have forgotten your network password, you can reset the same by visiting the router setup wizard and then try again.
There’s No Internet Connection At All
Well, there’s nothing you can do about this error at all. Although you can check for the device connections with the Blink camera, if there’s an error from your ISP end, you’ll need to wait. You can contact your ISP to get an estimate about the time it will take to get the issue resolved. Once it is, retry connecting your Blink camera to the network. You can use the Blink camera setup wizard to do so.
Here’s More You Can Do!
If none of the tips shared above helps you fix the “Blink camera not connecting to wifi” issue, you can power cycle your Blink camera system. To Power cycle your Blink camera system, follow the steps:

Furthermore, if power cycling your Blink camera doesn’t help you either, you can finally RESET your Blink camera and then retry connecting the same to the network. To RESET the camera, here are some steps you can follow:
