Applies to: All Reolink NVRs.
1. Connect NVRs to a router/network via Ethernet cable:
All the Reolink NVRs can be connected to the router via Ethernet cable. And there is a LAN Ethernet port on the back of the NVR. You may plug the LAN port to your router via Ethernet cable for network connection.
2. Connect NVR to router/network via wifi:
Currently, the RLN4-211W WiFi NVR is the only model that can be connected to the router via wifi.
There are 2 WiFi Modes on the RLN4 -211W NVR, when you select "AP" mode, you need to plug the NVR to the router via Ethernet cable for remote connection.
If you want to connect the NVR to your router via WiFi, please go to the NVR WiFi Setting page, then select the "Station" mode. After that, you may connect the NVR to your router's wifi.
And the SSID and Password (Station mode) in the picture below will be your router's WIFI SSID/Password.
Note: After you set the Station mode, please unplug the Ethernet cable from the WiFi NVR LAN port, otherwise the NVR will still use the Ethernet connection first.
