Question about Linksys Wireless-G WVC54GC Network Camera

2 Answers

Camera setup I can't the camera to save configuration setup. Mostly the default settings. Finds it on the wired network, go through the 10 step process, tried using DHCP for IP setup, tried using an assigned static IP in the right range. the wireless settings are right on. Hit the reset button on the camera to see if that did anything but nope. Have a firmware upgrade downloaded, but can't get the firmware uploaded until after initial setup. Thoughts? Visa, gigabit network - standard netgear settings for most of my stuff.

First, Linksys cameras won't accept certain WEP keys. If you router is from Qwest who only issue hex keys, your Linksys camera thinks that is ASCII not hex and your stuck. Try removing all security/WEP/WPA and see if you can connect.

Second, Linkysys has a problem in the SETUP phase has to be literally just a few feet away. Once camera is setup it can be moved to much further away and video works fine. But for setup funtion to find the camera wirelessly it has to be under 5 feet!

Third, this software of record.exe is very unstable. You will get at most 12 hours before it breaks. So, this means this system will not work for what you want it to.

Maybe there is a new firm ware upgrade that will fix this. But right now the system looks good, but is a HUGE time waster. Its almost there, but not quite.

Connecting wireless cam with different ip address


An IP camera is a video camera that can be viewed over a Local Area Network or the Internet. The camera typically is monitored locally from a computer via the network to which the camera is attached. With just a few additional configurations of your network, you can access the IP Network Camera so that it can be monitored remotely using the Internet. This is the benefit of a network camera, as it can reside on an IP network and the video stream can be accessed or saved remotely.

Get the Default Gateway of your IP. Do this by entering "ipconfig/all" in your Command Prompt and hitting "Enter" on your keyboard. Your IP information will be brought up, and number you are looking for is the Default Gateway. This is underneath the IP address. Identify this number by its number pattern, which will look like the following: 111.222.3.4. Access your router. This is done by simply typing the default gateway from Step 1 above into the address bar of your Internet browser, and pressing "Enter." Forward your port by configuring your camera. Open the configuration section on the router web page where port forwarding is located by clicking on the "Applications & Gaming" link along the top of the page. In this menu, click on "Port Range Forwarding." Configuration sections can be located differently with each kind of router. Find this information by referring to the documentation that came with your router when you purchased it. Access your camera over the Internet. To do this, type your public IP address into the address bar of the web browser and press "Enter" in the same way as described in Step 2 when entering your default gateway. Note: The public IP address is different from your regular IP address. The regular IP address identifies computers and other devices on your network, whereas your public IP address is what is used to make yourself known to others on the Internet. Your Internet service provider can supply you with your public IP address if you call them and ask for it.

I can't get this website to work. 192.168.0.253. It's supposed to be the website to configure my BL-131 Network Camera. I got the camera a couple of years ago and just now replaced my router. ...


Replacing the router will not have changed any settings in the camera. The IP address 192.168.0.253 is the factory default for the camera, unless you assigned a new one when you set the camera up.

This is a wired/wireless camera, and if you're trying to connect wirelessly you probably have a router setup issue. Like any wireless device, the camera needs to provide the right key to connect. If you haven't set up your new router's wireless security yet, or set it up with a different key than the old one, the camera won't be able to connect. If the camera's not on your network, you won't reach it and you'll have the problem you described.

The simplest thing to do is to start fresh. Reset the camera to factory defaults with its rear-panel reset button. The button is recessed and you'll need a pen or other object to press it for a couple of seconds. Connect the camera to the router using a cable, and you'll be able to reach it again on 192.168.0.253. Set up the wireless network in your router (assign network name, security key, etc.). Then go through the camera wireless setup steps so it can connect to your network and you'll be back in business.

If you need a copy, you can download the manual and find other information here from Panasonic.

Panasonic bl-c20 wireless network camera


Try this - unplug the power from the camera (and the ethernet cable if it is using one). Locate the 'Factory Default Reset' button on the camera get a paperclip and straighten it out. Plug the power back into the camera and press the reset button with the paperclip until you see the indicator light flash and go out (about 10 seconds). Now attach the ethernet cable to the camera and into your router and insert the Panasonic camera utility disk into your computers CD Drive. Run the setup utility from the disk and after a few minutes it should find the camera and you can follow the instructions for a new set-up. If the camera has been on more than 20 minutes when you start the setup utility, unplug it for 10 minutes and try again. Oh, and turn off Windows firewall while you are doing this.
