To set a static IP on the camera, do the following:

1. Chose an IP address for the camera that is outside your normal DHCP range but within your network subnet.
For example, if your router uses DHCP and gives out addresses in the range of 192.168.1.1 up to 192.168.1.10, you should chose an IP address beyond that (e.g. 192.168.1.20).
2. Login to your camera's current IP address and go to Setup -> Network setup
3. Turn off DHCP and type in the IP address that you chose into the configuration.
4. Restart your camera.

The above should fix your Static IP address question.

With regards to your Wireless question, you should make sure of the following:
1. Your router is set to broadcast its SSID
2. Your router is setup to use WPA (not WPA2)
3. Your AES password in the camera config is the same as that as the routers

Hope this helps

Hello...I'm trying to connect a wireless kodak printer and I do not know my ssid to enter into the key pad and a wireless connection cannot be completed without it.I have a d-link router.thanks....Andrew


You can open the admin page of the dlink router to set up the SSID in the wireless section. To do that, you will need to connect a PC to it and set up an IP address for the PC in the same subnet of the admin IP address of the router. You may see the admin IP address on the back or the bottom of the router or from the manual or from the web site of the manufacturer. If the admin IP is 192.168.0.1, you can set up the IP address of your PC in the TCP/IP properties to use a static IP such as 192.168.0.10 or something and open the admin page of the router in a web browser by using the admin IP address of the router as the URL. Then you can login there and change the setting. After you get the SSID and maybe WPA password set, you can use it for wireless connection on your home network.

Settings on Linksys router for the DCS 5220 to view remotely and settings on Securicam


Configuring your Linksys router for remote desktop is a task that's needed before you can access your computer from outside the network. If you plan to connect to your remote desktop machine from the Internet, you need to configure the router to allow traffic to the PC. Linksys is a common router used on home networks for wireless and LAN configurations. Configuring your router to allow port forwarding to a remote desktop only takes a few steps through the graphical user interface.
  1. tep 1 Open your browser window and type the IP address of the router in your address bar. This opens a window for the username and password needed for access to configure the router.
  2. Step 2 Click the "Applications and Gaming" tab on the opening screen. This opens a window with a list of ports of which you can open for access on your network.
  3. Step 3 Type "Remote Desktop" in the application textbox.
  4. Step 4 Enter "3389" in the "Start" and "Stop" port ranges. This port number is specific to the remote desktop application.
  5. Step 5 Leave the value of "Both" in the protocol listbox.
  6. Step 6 Type the IP address of the internal machine on your network. The IP address is the machine running remote desktop. When traffic from the Internet reaches the router, it forwards the request to this IP address.
  7. Step 7 Check the "Enabled" checkbox and click "Save Settings."
  8. Step 8 Close the browser window.

1. SSID is the same and set to broadcast
2. You are using the same WPA AES password as the router
3. The wireless antennae is connected
4. The camera is located not to far from the router

IP camera keeps resets itself


Hi

I have a pretty good knowledge of these cameras as I have 5 around my house.....

IP address resets are likely caused by the default address being loaded (192.168.0.99) and the box is not checked to reset the IP on reboot. You have two options.....

Using IP surveillence, open the camera settings. You will be prompted that the recording will stop, just press OK. Once you get to the settings window, you should see your list of cameras and the config screen for the one that is highlighted. Pick the camera you want to change the setting for and go to the tab where you can assign the IP address and gateway. Type in the IP address you want it to use. Uncheck the box that says 'reset IP on reboot'. That box is at the top. Hit apply. Once you do that, cycle the power on the unit leaving it off for at least 10 seconds. When the camera reboots, type in the new IP and you should be able to view it. (sometimes the camera will default on that IP if your router is using 192.168.0.1 and DHCP for computers that has that IP in it's range of assignments of IPs. Telling the camera which one to use and telling it to not reset on reboot will make the new IP stay in the camera.)

Your second option is to use the Installation Wizard or IE, find the camera either by typing in the IP for the camera in IE with the http:// or linking to the device with the installation wizard. If you follow the same procedure of assigning the IP and unchecking the box on reboot like described earlier, this should cure your problem. You do NOT want the IP resetting on reboot unless the camera will not link to your home router (likely causes for this is the IP range the router uses, say 192.168.1.1 like most belkin or linksys routers use, does not cover the IP range of the camera in it's DHCP server.

What I found best was to buy a junk router, set it's DHCP IP range to cover 192.168.0.99, set the camera, save it, kill the cameras power, connect it to the router you plan to use, then start the camera back up. Make sure whatever IP address you use on the camera is one covered by the DHCP server list on the router. ie: camera is set to 192.168.2.2 and the router assigns IPs from 192.168.2.2 through192.168.2.254. If your router only assigns IPS from 192.168.2.100 through 192.168.2.200 and the IP on the camera is 192.168.2.2, you won't be able to connect to it.

Hope this helps
