Cameras can now be monitored remotely, even through the
Internet. However, there are times when monitoring a Lorex camera will
not work because of browser or software incompatibility. Check to see if
your system's software runs fine prior to use and get software updates
as necessary. Because continuous monitoring can be tiring, installation
of motion sensors helps make the monitoring process more efficient.
Internet monitoring is now a very popular feature of
security systems where users can get surveillance camera footage from
their homes, business establishments or even while on vacation. Poor or
slow Internet service can lead to difficulty accessing data. When
monitoring surveillance cameras away from your home or business, be sure
you have a fast and reliable Internet connection.
An IP camera is a video camera that can be viewed over a Local Area Network or the Internet. The camera typically is monitored locally from a computer via the network to which the camera is attached. With just a few additional configurations of your network, you can access the IP Network Camera so that it can be monitored remotely using the Internet. This is the benefit of a network camera, as it can reside on an IP network and the video stream can be accessed or saved remotely.
Get the Default Gateway of your IP. Do this by entering "ipconfig/all" in your Command Prompt and hitting "Enter" on your keyboard. Your IP information will be brought up, and number you are looking for is the Default Gateway. This is underneath the IP address. Identify this number by its number pattern, which will look like the following: 18.104.22.168. Access your router. This is done by simply typing the default gateway from Step 1 above into the address bar of your Internet browser, and pressing "Enter." Forward your port by configuring your camera. Open the configuration section on the router web page where port forwarding is located by clicking on the "Applications & Gaming" link along the top of the page. In this menu, click on "Port Range Forwarding." Configuration sections can be located differently with each kind of router. Find this information by referring to the documentation that came with your router when you purchased it. Access your camera over the Internet. To do this, type your public IP address into the address bar of the web browser and press "Enter" in the same way as described in Step 2 when entering your default gateway. Note: The public IP address is different from your regular IP address. The regular IP address identifies computers and other devices on your network, whereas your public IP address is what is used to make yourself known to others on the Internet. Your Internet service provider can supply you with your public IP address if you call them and ask for it.

I would suggest that you instead download and install Google Picasa ans use that to manage and retrieve images from your digital cameras. I would not suggest using the software that came with the camera.
Picasa is a superior photo management and retrieval program to anything else available for free from the Internet.
Win7 has both Internet Explorer 32bit and Internet Explorer 64bit.Click on start, all programs, open Internet Explorer, NOT Internet Explorer 64bit. The shortcut on my desktop was to the 64bit option and I could not view cameras regardless of permissions etc. Once I opened 32bit version cameras work perfectly. I fought with this for weeks before realizing there are two versions of IE9. Hope this helps.
Confirm first whether the camera is working by using it to take ordinary picture or video of your self. if it works it means that the bandwidth of your internet is not enough to support your camera on the web. and it may be that your camera is not working or functioning well. You can try using an external camera to know whether it is an internet problem or your camera problem...Then don't forget to do the setting of the camera as well so as to support webcam.
