Re: Wifi on 5dmkIV totally unstable - assistance needed

Thanks a lot Enders for your thorough testing.

I don't believe Canon is to blame though, as you said, more like some mismatch between my router/PC and camera.

Or maybe some setting in my Ethernet driver? But I'm not sure what to switch off or on. I tried to disable any power plan I found but to no avail. Disconnections still happened.

If you monitor the WiFi connections on your router, does it show the connection to the camera then suddenly disappear? Does it indicate IP assignment and signal strength?

Yes. IP is nicely assigned, esp. when I put a static one. Signal power is ok.
It shows a timer in seconds for each connection. That's how I discovered that Canon Wifi > Router-PC lasts 60 without EOS-U or 73 seconds when connected to EOS-Utility.
