I recently purchased and installed wireless IP cameras (IPOB-EL3IREW 3MP Elite Network IP WIFI Wireless IR Bullet Security Camera).

I have a good Netgear wireless router and using a regular NVR to access the cameras. The picture from a nearby camera is fine but from cameras 60 feet away freeze.

I purchased a installed a Netgear WIFI extender. Question to experts:

 

1- Is the freeze related to power or the wifi?

2- If I switch the cameras to wifi extender, then how a non-wireless NVR can detect that?

3- I am using the wireless cameras for the first time and any suggestion / recommendation  will be greatly appropriated.  

 

Thanks

First, you must understand how an extender works. You will need to add this extender in an area where you have minimum 2-3 bars. After you have confirmed that this location is prime for the extender then you can take a look at the cameras and see how the signal strength is, the recorder will see the cameras on the network, be sure to have the wireless network be the same as the NVR’s network, some routers will create two different networks one LAN and another WLAN. 

Also, when it comes to anything that uses RF it is prone to accepting noise, just because you get 5 bars, it may not be an optimal signal. It could be for example 30% signal and 70% noise. 

Netstumbler is a free windows tool to see the signal to noise ratio.
If your router is not supported by Netstumbler, then try Kitz – DMT Tool

 

We do have some AP’s that will provide you with a better coverage. TP-UAC-PRO
