Wireless IP Camera Won't Connect To Westell 9100EM Router

I'm trying to connection an IP camera, on Fios, to my Verizon Westell 9100EM router.


Connecting the camera via a wired connection works fine.  Port forwarding is automatically configured when turning the camera on, at TCP ANY 554, and the IP camera is viewable on the web.  No worries.


However, when unplugging the cord, the router never recogizes the camera.  Not after resetting, powering off/on, etc.  Both the WEP and SSID are set correctly on the camera.  All other wireless devices (laptops, Xbox 360, iPhone, etc.) work fine on the router. 


Naturally, the camera people blame Verizon and Verizon blames the camera people.


Does anyone have any ideas?

Since you had both the wire connection enabled turn the camera off completly and start it back up.  Confirm the wep key is set correctly.  Make sure the camera has the wireless enabled. Sounds like a problem with the camera since other devices are connecting properly.

What are the details on the camera (Make, model, etc) ?

I have a trendnet ip400w and am getting the same problems. The camera seems to try and connect for a few seconds and then disconnects. In the router log I get


daemon.info hostapd: ath0: STA 00:14:d1:56:59:a3 IEEE 802.11: associated


then 2 seconds later I get


daemon.info hostapd: ath0: STA 00:14:d1:56:59:a3 IEEE 802.11: deassociated
