Re: Connecting via IP to canera
If you plan on accessing your camera via the Internet you may assign a
domain name that's more memorable than your IP address with one of a number of
Dynamic DNS online services.
You have to assign an IP address for the camera on your home or work address. This is what will allow you to monitor your camera from anywhere in the world where there is internet access. Next follow this link and find a service:
This page has a list of almost all the dynamic DNS online service providers. Many of them are free or donation based. The ones that are free or donation based are more for people that have a strong grasp of the concept. The pay services provide priceless customer service if you are new to networking or net based video cameras. I suggest you sign up with one of the pay sites for a month and milk their technical support team. They have 800 numbers and experts that will set the whole thing up for you then you just cancel at the end of the month and switch to one of the free providers. I hope this sets you in the right direction. If you need more assistance with this or any other technical issues feel free to contact me. Please remember to rate me Fixya for this insider information. Thank you George

Set the camera to "automatically obtain an IP-address".
Connect the camera, via an Ethernet network cable, to a router.
The router will supply a valid IP-address to the camera; much simpler than trying to "manually" set an IP-address, network-mask, and gateway IP-address.
These cameras are touchy. Hold the reset button on the back in for about 20-30 seconds. Bring up the CD software you got with the camera, it should spot the camera right off and you can configure. That seems to be the only way I can communicate with this model. After setup, then browsers, etc seem to work fine. I would also download the latest Firmware and update.
How is your webcam connected to your network? Is it connected to your PC or your router?
If it is connected to your router, go into the router settings and see if the router reassigned a new ip address to the camera. If you set the router up for DHCP, it will automatically assign IP addresses to all devices that are connected to it, as long as the individual devices are also set to dynamic IP addressing. Your router is set up for the 1.0 network, so your pc is most likely 1.2, while your router port connecting to your home network is 1.1.
Another thing you can do is make sure your webcam is turned on and go into 'My Network Places', then click on workgroup computers. See if the webcam is listed there.
make sure you are using a crossover cable. A straight through ethernet cable will not work for talking with your computer. Next, go to your network connections. click on TCP/IP properties and enter in for the IP address 192.168.0.101 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 apply it. go back to network connections and disable then enable your connection. Now go to the Sony IP setup program. Double click on your camera when it appears. Don't forget the default address of the camera is 192.168.0.100.
I think maybe the problem is that the cam has already been recognised and given an ip address when you connect via RJ45 cable, but when you try wirelessly, there is a replication of the ip address which is not allowed.
Check your router to see what ip address was given to the cam and remove if neccasary so as to re new the cam ipaddress.
I would turn off the encryption first to try and get it working, then turn on again.
