Ok, let's backup. Do the following and it WILL work. Did it last night, actually.

  • Connect the camera to your wireless router via the Ethernet port.
  • Look into your router and jot down the IP address assigned to the camera.
  • Enter the IP address in your browser address bar/url. You will be taken to the camera's web configuration page. You should see live video there.
  • Disconnect the Ethernet cable now. The camera should continue to work. There may be a lag but it will show.
That's about it. Don't complicate the matter by messing with ad hoc network, wifi-setting, SSID, channel etc. etc. None of them are necessary to get the camera to work.

Thanks for the step by step...We can only hope he's got it working by now since he hasn't been on in 10 days.  ::)

That is not to say that weird things don't happen. Right now one of my cameras has the green light on but it does not show up on the router's DHCP client list. Two others do. It used to work fine for months.

Some routers have a odd way of handling IP address display. I know that if you assign a static IP address to a device, it will not show up on a DIR series routers list. It may display on the Status/Device Info page.
