I have an Actiontec and did not have to do a port forwarding to get the camera to work. Worth a try.
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD 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:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.
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

Losing wireless Connection


No solution known to fix this. Internal the software tries to refind itself.

In Linksys software there are two separate programs running. The video is sent to the wireless router and recorded on your computer. Whether it is alive or not and can be configured is a different program. That program requires the wireless camera be literally just a few feet from the wireless router. Say 5 feet or less. One configured you can move the camera to well over 100 feet from router fine.

But eventually it will lose connection and you have physically move camera back.

This is a major flaw of this system and why it won't work for a real application

I using the linksys 150n router on my desktop in the basement of my house, I have a verizon dsl supplied external modem westell 327w in the office that's working fine. how do i get 150n to work?


  • The router needs to be configured with the settings required by your ISP which is Verizon.
  • The modem should be connected to the Internet port of your router.
  • Verify with Verizon if you're connection is DHCP or PPPoE. If it is PPPoE then you should have a username and password from Verizon.
Please update me about this to assist you further with the installation of your router.

2wire 2700HGV cannot detect wireless Linksys IP camera WVC54GC


Purchase a different router and return the 2wire to the ISP explaining it is not compatible with your equipment at home. You may need to provide them with the new router's MAC address.

Linksys camera wvc54gc


make wsure that that port 1024 is assigned to the ip address of the camera under port forwarding, you can also try changing the remote port, try 5000 and above, if it still does not work try DMZ.
you can always check if port 1024 is open on your router by performing a port scan through the net, you can get a free port scanner on this site..

for the process on doing fort forwarding on your 2wire router check this link.
