Lost connection The camera works fine after I go go through the initial setup on cable and then wireless, however usually the next day the connection is lost and need to go through re-start for the camera to work again, not very handy when I'm out of town and cannot connect!

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

It was working fine until ive reset my linksys wrt54g, and i did my setup again, but i dont get any internet connection, my linksys is using a cable to my pc. please help


When you resetted your linksys router, chances are, the setup for WAN connection was lost. You can try these steps:

1. Connect the internet directly to your pc. If your pc was able to browse the internet, move on to the next step. If not, you'll have to contact your ISP for the settings of your internet connectivity.
2. Connect back the internet to the WAN port of the router, and connect your pc to the router's LAN port.
3. Open the router's page in a browser (the address usually is 192.168.1.1, username is admin and password is admin)
4. If your router has a setup wizard, run the setup wizard, because it usually clones your pc's mac address.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to connect my macbook pro 4.1 to a wireless printer. That printer works fine - when on wireless with my wifes windows machine and it works fine if i connect my mac to the printer- just not n a...


IN the case of the Mac what I have had to do in the past was shut down the other laptops and computers, delete the printer program from the Mac and start over. During the setup of the printer make sure nothing is connected to the printer. Only connect what you are instructed to at the appropriate time. It will eventually ask you how you are going to connect to the printer from that particular printer, answer ethernet cable and attach the ethernat cable to the printer from your router, make sure your laptop is connected to the router with an ethernet cable. Always set your computer up to the printer vis a hard line, then onve it is done you can swap over to a wireless setup. Once the setup is complete and a test print is accomplished bia ethernet cable, then disconnect the cable from the laptop to the router. Once you are connected to the network wirelessly, attempt another test page, you have already set the printer up at this point to be your default printing device so the laptop will find the printer on the network and initiate it. You may have to watch close for a pop up window asking to allow the connection or access to the program. Maybe think about dropping the firewall temporarily until the connection is secure.

Router not seeing internet connection


If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

Setup wizard doesn't locate wireless router.


Any old ethernet cable should be fine. The setup disc is generally used only for initial setup to establish communications between router and pc, and to also configure your internet providers settings. You can access your router from your pc by going to http://192.168.1.1 and you can change settings in the router from there instead of using setup disc. If you insist on using the setup wizard disc you usually have to set your computer's ip address to a specific number and possibly reset router to default state (see manual or http://www.linksys.com).

Sony KV-27FS100 does not respond to remote


Good day.

Maybe there are loose connections along the IC that supports the operation of your remote. This could also hamper initial set up operation of your unit. Also, check on loose connections along the power supply.

if u are trying to go online with hardwired connection, you can try chaning the ethernet port or cables. If you are trying to go online wireless, then try to login to the router and then reconfigure the wireless part of it
