WiFi 6


Will the Ring Video Doorbell PRO connect to a Netgear NIGHTHAWK® MESH WIFI 6 SYSTEM (MK62)?

Many thanks for any advice.

Hi @sheddy90. The Video Doorbell Pro needs a 2.4GHz or a 5.0GHz wifi connection and does not require a specific type or model of router. I hope that helps. :slight_smile:

Do ring devices, specifically the ring doorbell 3 plus, the ring chime and the ring stick up cam, connect with WiFi 6, 802.11ax?

Hi @phillipvb. Ring devices require a 802.11 a/b/g/n wifi connection. When looking at any of our devices on our website, you can scroll down to Tech Specs and find the connectivity information there as well. I hope that helps answer your question! :slight_smile:

I just upgraded to a Wifi 6 router - important to note AX. So I can connect all of my ring devices (many several years old), but I can’t connect my doorbell 1. Your thread seems to imply no door bells work with AX, and I have to turn AX off because the ring doorbell device does not support AX. Is that true? Do newer doorbells work with AX?

This is a pretty big issue IMHO. Please advise.

PS. I’ve factory rebooted the doorbell, tried to synch using Mac-ID and without. All the other ring devices connected perfectly to my new wifi 6 router

Hi there, @bill.linda! In addition to the network requirements shared previously in this thread, some routers may have advanced options that could be adjusted to create a more compatible network environment. As a test, please ensure the network is meeting the aforementioned mentioned requirements, as well as utilizing a standard/ universal encryption type, and allowing connection to these ports and protocols. As you mentioned a particular mode preventing one of your devices from connecting, the best next step might be reaching out to our support team for a more in-depth look at your network and more advanced solutions.

I just bought an AX router also, the doorbell worked fine but the Chime would not connect, there is a setting in the router to run another ssid in a wifi 5/ac compatibility mode along side wifi 6, the chime works fine on this.

Perhaps you need to look for this option, though ideally I’d rather have an updated unit.
