The browser doesn't have anything to do with the operation of your camera.

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:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

I can't get access to some of my pages on Chrome, and Safari. What can I do?


Some webpages no longer load on certain browsers. There are many reasons why this happens. Some browsers or websites require certain extensions, updates or security setting to be correct. Try accessing the page from another browser if if still has issues it is more likely the problem lies with the website rather than your browser.

Cannot access website


Why can't I view some websites?
Applies to Windows 7
If you can access some websites but not all of them, here are some possible causes:
  • Your browser could be attempting to connect through a proxy server. If so, try connecting with the proxy server turned off.
  • Your browser connection settings could be incorrect. To change connection settings, follow these steps:
    1. Open Internet Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Internet Options.
    2. Click the Connections tab.

  • Your router could be attempting to proxy DNS requests and failing. Refer to the documentation that came with your router for instructions on disabling DNS proxying.
  • Parental Controls, Family Safety, or some other parental control software could be blocking access to certain websites.

it is almost certainly your firewall or other security software blocking the connection Make sure that your firewall program is configured to allow internet access.Besides personal firewalls, other security programs, including Norton or Symantec Antivirus, can block internet access or cause other connection issues, especially after the browser is updated.

Trying to port forward requests to the IK-WB21A webcam. From inside the house it works great. From outside, port forwarding port 8001 to 80 and I get NO response. Tried tcpdump and there is no response...


What are you using to view the Camera? Is this the only IP camera you are viewing/.accessing on the network? If it is not, are you using different IPs in the non-DHCP pool.
Typically you do not have to set-up port forwarding to gain access to the camera within the network. Normally port forwarding is set-up when you are outside your network and need to gain access to different applications/devices in your network using the same static IP address.
Let say you have a camera ip on 192.168.1.20.
You can connect to the camera with your web browser inside your network with the IP 192.168.1.20 (obviously), but if you have the camera set up to only be triggered on a specific port (other than the browser's default 80) let's say 100, then you would enter 192.168.1.20:100.
If the only thing on your network is the camera that you want to access from outside. you would setup in your router to route all incoming requests from port 80 (which is the web browser default) to the IP of the camera. Sometimes routers ask for a range just enter 80 to 80.
If the camera is working on a different port like 8001 then you would port forward 8001 to 8001 to IP 192.168.1.20. You would enter in your web browser (off-site) your static IP 69.132.54.176:8001. But I would suggest if the camera is the only thing you will be trying to gain remote access to, then leave it at 80 and set up forwarding for port 80 to the IP.
That way you can set up a free DNS service and not worry about paying extra for a static.

Why can I can access certain web sites, but not be able to upload pdf files or open certain files in a web site?


It might be a Browser problem, try using other Browsers to check if you can upload files to the websites you want, because every website is designed for it specific need and purpose, you might not be able to upload because their is a restriction on file upload.

Networking the intellinet 503181


Hello,
There are a couple things to check. Make certain that you have port forwarding enabled for port 80/80 to the IP address of the camera. Make certain that you have port forward for port 8080/0 to the IP address of the camera. Find your IP address for your Internet connection - you can go to ipchicken.com and it will display your IP address for you. Then open your browser, type in your Internet IP address on the address line and hit enter. That should bring up the guest log in window and you can log in to view the video stream. If you want to log in to the camera console to change configurations, just type the camera user name and password instead of the guest user name and log in.
Hope this helps!
