Http:// - user manual for the camera

support number 805 988-0463

if you are using vista, that may be the problem since I don't believe vista supports this camera

How can i set up a connection to a network with windows vista basic

There are several ways to do this you can use a router, wireless router or set up a direct connection. With a router all you have to do is connect your modem to the router and computers to the router. For a wireless connection you need a wireless card installed in your computer and a wireless router. You connect your modem to your router and set up your wireless connection with the software that came with your card or through windows wireless service. You can also connect two computers through their ethernet port with an ethernet cord. You plug coonect them with the cord go into control panel open network connections and to the left chose set up home or small office network. You will need to configure the computer with internet access as the host and the other as a guest. You can share any type of connection such as dial up, cable, dsl, and broadband.

Since this phone uses Windows Mobile, it's pretty easy to do this.

1. Connect your phone to your computer using ActiveSync for Windows XP or Windows Mobile Device Center if you have Vista or Windows 7.

2. Now, simply find the Tilt in File Explorer after it is connected to the PC, right click it, and select "Import Pictures and Videos" and follow the directions in the wizard.

Install DRIVERS from CD before connecting to the PC
Do the wizard stuff.
Connect cam to PC using USB cable
Press on button
Select DSC/DV mode button to read "PC camera" on LCD
Do new hardware wizard stuff
(Be sure to click "Continue Anyway" when windows kicks the install. Wizard will run again)
Finish wizard
Turn on cam
select "PC Camera"
Open "My Computer"
Double click on the Camera Icon to start webcam!

This works for XP SP2. It does seem to crash Firefox when trying to connect to Blogtv which was all I
troed using it on. It may have other issues! I actually use a cheap "Gear Head Quick Webcam Basic" that I got at Big Lots for $13 for video conferencing

Router cannot connect on internet at setup wizard

Hi pag Smartbro ang gamit mo hindi mo pwede gamiting ang setup wizard. Iba kasi ang paraan ng connection sa SMartBro. Mahirap explain it would be best if you call Linksys Philippine support since there are so many ways to connect Smartbro to a Linksys router. The number is 1-800-1-114-1695 toll free. or kung gusto mo sa Yahoo ID ko nalang mastersaintx message mo ko sa umaga.

Just bought a new dell and this wont find the camera

I am assuming you have installed the vista driver for the camera, if not,CRID=1794,contentid=10828 If you have, then try it in another usb port and re boot the pc with it connected to see if it finally sees the camera. Sometimes the XP driver works, so give that a try also, but it sounds as if it is not installing the software properly toward the end which may not be registering the camera in the registry, hence why it is not seen as connected hardware.
