Do you mean a web cam for your computer? A "spy" cam for your home? I suggest you follow the documentation that came with the camera, check for the model on the manufacturer's website, or you can even check youtube. Generically, you could simply connect it to your computer, and it may automatically look for drivers. However, some products require you to install provided software PRIOR to connecting the camera. Even though it's wireless, it may still need to be connected using a cable first in order to install it. I can't be more specific than that without know the type of camera.
first off, plug it in. if its usb it should turn right on, and it might need a driver fir it to run on your comp, so download a driver if you dont have one for it, and plug it in. if that doesnt work, make sure the cam works
There is no solution to this. It is a problem inside Linksys wireless cameras. The video transfer is one program and the I am alive and configuration part is another program. Both using two different wireless protocols.
So the SETUP function requires it be very close...under a few feet away from wireless access point to get it connected. Once connected you can move the camera to other locations.
However, this will only last for about 12 hours, 26 is the most I ever got.
And then you are done.
It is so brittle that after days of playing with it, I set it up and had it working at 11:00pm ,and go to bed at 11:15. At 11:22 it breaks.
Essentially too brittle of software to make it work in professional setting and requires lots of maintenance.
Cameras work pretty well when software keeps them connected.
Setup software is very amateurish and bugs galore! Take a quick 5 minute look and you will see what I mean
While you had it plugged in the serial port you should have set the SSID name for the camera?
You may have to enter this manually to find the camera. If it is not set to broadcast this SSID, it will work but you must put it in the wireless connection settings.
I think maybe the problem is that the cam has already been recognised and given an ip address when you connect via RJ45 cable, but when you try wirelessly, there is a replication of the ip address which is not allowed.
Check your router to see what ip address was given to the cam and remove if neccasary so as to re new the cam ipaddress.
I would turn off the encryption first to try and get it working, then turn on again.
