I have a Swann NVW-485 Wi-Fi HD Security System in a 2 storey double brick house with a concrete slab. I can't connect to all 4 cameras via AP mode (station connecting to cameras directly) so I changed it to station mode (cameras and NVR connect via my own access point/router).
Once I set it up so all 4 cameras are connected via AP mode, they work, record and the software indicates perfect reception to all 4 cameras. Then, for no reason, all 4 cameras disconnect approx. every minute or so for a few seconds, then automatically reconnect.
Essentially, I'm unable to use station mode, which is my only solution.
What would be the cause of this, knowing that they connected originally with good reception (as denoted by the WiFi indicator on the software). It seems to be a camera/station issue which needs a firmware update.
Any help, tips or trick would be greatly appreciated as I currently have a SSwann NVW-485 Wi-Fi HD Security System which will be going in the bin.

You need to test the cameras in the AP mode. If the cameras do not drop out on AP mode, then the issue probably lies with your network, and not the recording system.
