I have Actiontec and didn't need to do Port Forwarding.
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.

  2. Then click on the Video Settings.

  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.

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.”

I can not access my ip Foscam FI8918W camera from internet (dyndns.org)...port forward is not clear. I have a Verizon Router Actiontec GT704WG. I am supposed to access camera...


OK let me clear port forwarding for you, your router normaly has a firewall (to block of any requests from the internet to exploit any services trough any ports) so if you want access to a resource on the LAN side (side of the router where all the devices and computers are pluged) from the WAN side (side where the ISP's modem is connected for internet) you have to open a port or multiple ports to a specific device IP address (according to device manual).

for exemple:
assuming that the camera has an IP of 192.168.1.110 and it uses port 7777 for resources, in the port forwarding section of the router you ave to open port 7777 and direct it to 192.168.1.110 (save settings and VOILA)

enjoy!

BL-C131 port forwarding.


So you've configured port forwarding on the router. Do you have any anti-virus applications installed or have your set an exclusion in Windows firewall?

Remote access


you would need to forward port 3389 and make sure that the ip you're forwarding it to has remote desktop enabled for at least one user.

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..

Linking wrt54g with actiontec m1424wr


You need to check the ip address of your actiontec router, the default ip address of linksys router is 192.168.1.1, they should not be the same or else you will not able to connect the router to the internet.

To access the router web configuration

Let me also give you the site on how to add the linksys router to another existing router.

The linksys has 4 LAN port and 1 "Internet" port on the back - we ONLY use the LAN ports NEVER the Internet port - because your existing router is connected to the Internet - your linksys is connected to the LAN
