Linksys wireless camera--viewable if ISP uses dynamic IPs?

Hello. My cable ISP hands me a dynamic IP address, which my wireless router picks up and lets my wireless and ethernet network use the internet connection. No problem. However, if I wanted to add this Linksys wireless IP camera (WVC11B?) to my network, how can I access it using an IP address, not by using the "service" you have to pay for that lets you name the camera a plain-language name? Is it possible? Let's say somehow (not even sure how at this point), remotely, I can determine the IP address my modem/router was assigned. If I have that address, is that the main thing I need to access the camera's (private) IP address? Or in order to view the video (when using an ISP that uses dynamic IPs), do you _have_ to use the "SoloLink" service? Thanks. F I use a Linksys WRT54GS router and i have just added a Wireless G Home Monitor Camera - WVC54GCA.The video can be viewed in the web based utility and the 'Monitor'. What I am attempting to do is embed this live video on my website, but I apparently need an IP address for the streaming video - I am also not sure if the streaming video is recognized by my PC. Step by step directions in resolving this is appreciated

Ok, everything by default hands out dynamic ip addresses. If the camera is plugged into the network it will automatically pick up an ip address and you would be able to see it in your router config page. Try attaching the camera to the wireless network and then log into your router and look for attached devices. Let me know if you get stuck and where you get stuck.

try to delete wireless conenctions from list on change advance settings

192.168.0.1

To configure the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and type http://www.192.168.0.1
You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. type in admin and leave the password filed blank.
A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router’s password. Pick something you can remember.
You will next have to setup a time zone, you will then be given option as to how the router will handle IP address on the network. Most users will opt for the Dynamic option, which means the router will act as a DHCP server and supply all computers on the network with an IP address. If you select DHCP, you will need to Clone the IP address of the machine your ISP has already had contact with. For instance, if your ISP has been giving IP address to a certain computer before you put the router between them, you will need to clone the MAC address of that machine.

How do i remove devices from my linksys (model WRT 150N) router so I can reset the system to make it secure?


You shouldn't need to remove devices. I'm assuming you're referring to pc's and/or printers connected through a network cable? As long as each device is set to dynamically/automatically get an IP address, they will get a new one after the router resets. You can usually press the reset button on the router, assuming it has a little button inside a pinhole that you can press by using a sharp pencil or paper clip, though I'm not positive about this particular model. That will set it back to factory settings, which usually enables DHCP (dynamic addressing) on the router.

Do you have DSL or cable? Try resetting your router. Press the reset button on the back of the router and hold it it for about 5 seconds. When the router comes back up type in the router address: 192.168.1.1. If your ISP is using cable, make sure that you have DHCP enabled. If DSL, you will have to put in your username and password given to you by your ISP and you will have to enable PPPOE on your router.

I have airtel brodband connection but today i bought a wireless-g (linksys) how i setup it


get the default ip address of the router which is either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

Should be stated on the underside of the router or in the manual of the router.

Open your web browser ( internet explorer or firefox )

Delete everything out of the address bar and then enter the ip address of the router into the address bar including the dots ie 192.168.1.1 and then press enter

It should prompt you to login

the default login is admin as the username and click on ok ignoring the password field.

Otherwise it will be admin as the password and ignoring the username field and click on ok

This should take you to the web based configuration interface where you can configure all the settings for the router with regards to wireless , the ISP settings etc.

If you are unsure of what to configure in there post back with what your ISP advises to configure and I can help further.

ADSL ISP provides same address for IP and Gateway


Can you manually change the WAN IP on the router?  If so, give it an IP like 123.12.167.5 and set the gateway address to 123.12.167.1.  If it asks for a subnet mask, give it 255.255.255.0.
If she has a Linksys router, you may need to change the operating "MODE" on it.  A lot of Linksys routers have 2 modes of operation---Router mode and Gateway mode.  For her configuration, make sure the Linksys is in Gateway mode.  This will fix the NAT problem.

Cheers!

Installation CD


I lost my installation CD and received these instructions from the Belkin Tech Support, and was able to install the Wireless N Router with no problems.
Follow the steps given below for configuring the Belkin N router manually.
- Connect the computer to the "LAN" port on the router and connect the modem to the Internet/"WAN" port, using Ethernet cables. 
- Take a paper clip, insert the paper clip in the reset hole of the router and hold it for 15 seconds.
- The power light will flash and then come back "ON" solid, indicating that the router is being restored to factory defaults.
- The corresponding lights on the front of the router should be lit up.
- On the computer, check if you have an IP address in the range of 192.168.2.x.
- If not, specify a static IP address, gateway and "DNS" address by following the steps given in the link-
http://web.belkin.com/support/kb/kb.asp?a=2824 
- Log on to the router web interface by typing in http://192.168.2.1, in the address bar of your browser.
- By default, the password is blank.
- Click on "Connection Type" in the left hand column under "Internet WAN" heading.

If the connection type is Dynamic (cable):

- Choose "Dynamic" and then click on "Next". 
- Type in your “Host Name”, if you’re Internet Service Provider has provided it. Else, leave it blank.
- Click on "Change WAN MAC Address".
- Click on the button "Clone".
- Click on "Apply Changes". 

If the connection type is PPPOE (DSL):

- Choose "PPPOE" and click on "Next".
- Enter the user name and password given by your Internet Service Provider.
- Save the settings.
- Click on the "Home" link at the top of the screen. 

Internet Status should show "Connected" on the top right hand corner of the web page.

If the problem persists, please get back to us with the following information:

1. Type of connection provided by your ISP (Is it PPPOE, Dynamic or static).
2. Name of the Internet service provider (ISP).

Dynamic IP address


Dynamic ipaddress - is temporary, the ip changes when you disconnect for example.

Normal, or static ip - It's the same address from day to day.

Wireless-wired based devices must be in the same lan


If you are connecting to the internet, your network must use an un-assigned sub-net. You should use 192.168.1.1 - 255 with a mask of 255.255.255.0. Your router, linksys, will defaut to this. You should use dynamic addressing on the computers you want to connect, unless there is a reason that you need to use static addressing. If you need to use static addressing, you need to configure your router to only use say 192.168.1.10 - 20 for dynamic addressing. then configure your PC's to use 192.168.1.11 & 12 or anything else outside of the dynamic addressing.

I suspect your router is set for dynamic addressing and the static address that you are trying to use is in the dynamic range and your router will not see you PC's.
