    I have an apostrophe in my SSID and when I try to setup wifi on my hikvision camera it tells me the characters are illegal. Had a similar issue with an Annke. I was told to run the hikvision firmware but this camera is running hikvision firmware.

    There's one of the many ways things go wrong when programmers don't understand how to encode their strings.

    Just think of all the other less-obvious mistakes they're making.

    I also love things that won't let you paste a password in. Good job encouraging people to use weaker passwords.

    It is all I can do. Still trying to find a solution until I can hardwire.

    My personal favorite are things that only impose character restrictions client side :lmao:
