      Connecting a Linksys WVC54GC camera

      Hi everyone,

      I've got a linksys wireless camera model WVC54GC, they seem quite popular so I was wondering what experiences people had with the sky router.

      I've connected the camera to the router ethernet port, switched on. The led power light is steady, as expected, and the router port (number 2) light is on also, so everything seems ok there.

      Thing is, when I run the set up wizard, it cannot find the camera. I cannot log into the camera via the default IP either. The fact all the lights are on ok suggests the product is ok, so I'm wondering if there's an IP conflict or there is a setting needed on the router (I think I've just set up port forwarding on port 1024).

      Anybody been through a similar thing ??

      Thanks

      Have a look in the router settings and see if it is being recognised in the Attached Devices section.
      You may have to change the camera's IP to one in the same range as the router or to obtain an address automatically. ie. 192.168.0.xxx. I think Linksys devices are usually in the 192.168.1.xxx range.

      No it is not in there. The devices in there have IPs 192.168.0.xxx like you say.

      Don't suppose you'd know how to change camera settings, as I cannot connect to it to do so? [Sorry - connect the camera to the computer with ethernet cable. Bad day.]

      Thanks for the reply.

      Just wanted to report that camera is working fine with the new IP address.

      Thanks "Isitme" - this was the push in the right direction I needed.
