Problem with Yi action camera wifi

Hi, I have a problem with my yi action camera. The wifi light is blinking normally and I can see the wifi via app. However I can’t connect to it. I’ve tried solutions below and nothing works. Hope someone can help.

  • factory reset the camera
  • update to latest firmware via sd card
  • install the latest app with apk (however it says the app is for older version of Android)
  • forgot the wifi ssid and reconnect

Oh that’s awful, can you let me know what changes made prior the issue occurred?

Does it need the same wifi connection as your viewing device/phone possibly? If so, this product is useless because most people don’t use the same connection on the go as do they in-home.
Does anyone know if you have to be on the same connection on your viewing device as you do on your camera?
