Foscam Cloud Connection Problems

But frequently when I launch the Foscam iOS app and the cameras are showing as offline when I know that they are online. How do I know that?

See the screen shot above. At first I didn’t realize that I had a different version of the AWUS036NH, the version that has an H at the end: AWUS036NH not AWUS036N. They are different.

After the firmware upgrade everything works great.

Get the firmware here.
