2.0 out of 5 stars WIFI Connections can be very problematic, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung NX1000 Digital Compact System Camera - White (20.3MP, 20-50mm Lens Kit) 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)
Before I brought this camera I read a few reviews talking about the problems in getting to camera to connect to a WIFI network, but as I work in the IT Industry I thought I could overcome these potential issues. After 2 weeks and an email exchange with Samsung support I gave up. What Samsung support talk about is incompatibility with certain WIFI Routers which means their software is not extensive enough to get around the problem.

Same happens to me, with hit and miss connectivity, rendering the wifi functionality hardly usable. I have a virgin media super hub to which absolutely everything connects. I would have thought it's a pretty widespread device. Fortunately mobilelink works fine, and allows fairly convenient transfer of the photo to a smartphone or tablet.

When trying to upload straight to picasa, I found that google would block the login as it appears to be from an ip address in Ireland. So Samsung seems to be using a proxy there. Why ?
