Question about Linksys WVC54G Network Camera
Well I have (4) of these cams but solved this problem after Cam #1. Linksys' instruction manual really stinks and fails to mention a few important things. The initial configuration requires you to temporarily make a wired connection to your wireless router. Run the installation CD. The camera will need to setup an IP and "shake hands" with your network. Use the default, 192.168.1.115, as your camera IP address.
Disconnect the camera from the router. Go to your router admin panel at 192.168.1.1. You need to enable port forwarding. Set for TCP and UDP. I believe Linkys recommends port 1024. Should work.
Based on your description....sounds like an initial configuration problem and/or your port forwarding isn't enabled.

disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or
Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect
the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
