Wireless Security Cameras - Jamming!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am new here Looks like a site full of informative members so hopefully someone can help me out.

I have recently bought a Wireless Security Camera set up. I got it fairly cheap on Ebay.. It came with 4 wireless color night vision cameras and a receiver box that connects to the computer through video cables and a DVR card.

Now.. the cameras work great.. but here is my question/problem. I have a wireless D-Link DI-524 2.4 ghz G router, and no matter what channel I put it on (1-11), when the cameras are turned on they completely jam my router's signal. It's literally as apparent as just turning off and on the router. PLug and cameras, no internet.. unplug them internet works perfectly. There are no settings for the cameras so my changes must be through my wifi set up.

Any suggestions?

Throw the cameras away (or at least use only 1 or 2), or reconfigure/replace your router and network equipment to work on the 5GHz band.

Your 4 cameras are most likely in 2.4GHz, on 4 channels that together cover the whole band, and thus all the Wifi channels.
