Connection Problems

Post by mattionline » Sat Jul 25, 2015 8:27 am


i have connection problems to my Cameras.
The pings to the Router are very nice. No package loss, but when i ping my cameras (connected over LAN) i have a 84% package loss:

root@host:~# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.556 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=19 ttl=64 time=1.36 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=37 ttl=64 time=0.746 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=38 ttl=64 time=0.649 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=58 ttl=64 time=0.977 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=59 ttl=64 time=1.48 ms
--- ping statistics ---
70 packets transmitted, 11 received, 84% packet loss, time 69230ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.556/1.661/9.069/2.360 ms

Could you please tell me a solution for this problem or what do you think whats the problem?

Thanks in advance

Bad equipment?
Bad cable?
Saturated Wifi (all it takes it 1 camera at high frame rate)?

No one can precisely answer your question, because you have not described your network topology.

To figure it out yourself, start swapping out different pieces of network equipment and cabling until you find what is causing your packet loss. The camera itself could be bad. Only by the process of elimination will you be able to figure it out.
