    Hey folks. I'm new here and have read lots of posts about camera connections failing after doing wifi extender upgrade. Well it happened to me. Updated the dji vision app on my phone. It asked me to update wifi extender, so I did that and now NOTHING!
    What is the solution to this problem?

    I had the same thing happen to me yesterday. Most people claim that the wifi module is bad on the camera and that the camera isn't broadcasting??? My situation is different I guess. After the range extender upgrade I could no longer connect the app to my P2V. I noticed during the multiple attempts at rebinding the extender to the camera that the SSID of the camera is supposed to be FC200_XXXXXX but my camera is broadcasting a non hidden SSID of Phantom_XXXXXX just like the extender??? I was able to telnet in to the camera (validating that the wifi module is working) and change the wireless config to broadcast an FC200_XXXXXX. I had hoped that this would have fixed the problem but it appears to me that the update also changed something else. Perhaps the correct services aren't running in the camera or something. Do any of you much smarter folks out there have any ideas? I am pretty tech savy and think I can fix this if I knew what services/settings to look at. Does anyone have a software backup of the FC200 camera that might have these settings? Is anyone willing to try and get a backup of the files/settings so I can try and figure out what happened? This is extremely frustrating and I opened a tech support ticket with DJI but don't have high hopes based on what I have seen others say about support...
    Please help... any guidance would be appreciated!!!!
