I have exactly the same issue; can connect to phone, but not to wifi, and after choosing to search for access point, it just sits there without anything seemingly happening.


The built in Wi-Fi inside of cameras is not fully networkable.  It merely uses the same technology to communicate with another device, NOT A NETWORK.  Look at the Wi-Fi as a substitute for Bluetooth or NFC, but has a longer wireless range.

This statement is not accurate.

When the 5GHz Wi-Fi is working and connected via 802.11AC the camera transfers CRAW files via EOS Utility at the same rate or faster than USB 3.0 cable.

Mixed up the threads thought this was on the R5 discussion. It’s also exhibiting Wi-Fi connection issues
