Re: Any use for WiFi yet?
In reply to HankK, May 22, 2012


Thanks for the quick update on this. I'm sorry to hear your struggles with the NX20 WiFi, but I do find them very informative. I had hoped that Samsung would have enabled the NX20 to auto-detect the most common WiFi security protocols, but your experience makes it sound as though the process is much more finicky than that.

I spend over an hour yesterday, trying to get the NX20 to connect to my home network so I could transfer files. I got all the software on the PC loaded correctly. But the problem came down to the detailed connection of the camera to the WiFi network. I tried a number of parameter and password and press the button connection attempts. The only thing I did not do was turn of all security on my router (it is in my office). I may try this next.

Sorry I have not tried the other WiFi capabilities yet.

Thanks for your detailed and thorough comments on the NX20. I was wondering if you've found any use for the WiFi yet. I know 2 Mp is not a lot, but it seems like it should be sufficient for displays at least as large as 1280x1024. Does the NX20 tie directly to a photo folder on sites like Facebook or Flickr, or does the user need to somehow specify a location with a URL or similar path to a network server?

Thanks again,
