Wireles Web Cam not detected

Message 1 of 10

 I have been trying to set up a wireless cam but I'm having problems.  The camera is a LINKSYS WVC54GCA.  I run through the set up and everything saves but once I disconnect it from the router it cannot be detected.  What am I doing wrong?

Good Evening,

 

 

This is really interesting issue.  I know that the Actiontech require Port open in order for it to be accessed over the Web, but I have never heard an issue of it not detecting the Wireless signal

-->Ether case you can try changing the wireless channel to and extreme one, like 11 becuase that is not used by neighbouring router or phones.. perhaps.. interference is the cause of your issue..

Am having the same problem.  Note that when the Wvc54GCA is set to "infrastructure", no specific chanels are implemented.  You can select 11 but it will not be used.  Reason: only when you choose "ad hoc" will the actual selected chanel number be used.  This is per Linkysis TS and other articles on the web. I am using the ActionTec MI424WR and unfortunately, will not go into ad hoc at all.

Have you configured these items in the setup menu through the web browser?

 I have been looking in the manual for Linksys and it should work.

 

Page 22

http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WVC54GCA_V10_UG_A-WEB.pdf

 

What does it show in the status page for wireless?

 

Have you used the wireless on the router to connect any other device?

 

Also if you have set the IP address to static for the hardwire connection in the router's IP distribution list, and the name is displayed in the my devices list. It may not want to issue an IP address to the wireless nic with a different mac address and the same device name. Just a throught.

Possibility we have an issue with the cam itself? Have you taken it elsewhere to see if it can be found on that network?
