Wi-Fi Connection

Postby Chris B » Tue Nov 29, 2016 1:49 pm

Does anyone know if it is possible to connect wirelessly by plugging a Wi-Fi dongle into one of the USB sockets? When BT supplied my router, they also provided a dual-band dongle and it would be handy if I could use this with my NVR

Don't think it's possible in this way as you can't load drivers onto the recorder in anyway and select wifi access point etc.

The recorders have to think they are getting a wired connection but you can do this with a very short wire only to a wireless bridge or by using powerline adapters.
