Foscam troubles
« on: March 06, 2013, 10:00:40 PM »
I have 3 Foscam FI8918W and I'd like them to work wirelessly with icam...I've tried looking at the forum and haven't been able to get them up and running.

The cameras come with a CD that I followed..I was able to get them working on the computer with their IP camera tool. I also tried running IP Cam config but they aren't coming up at all.

Any suggestions?

thanks,
N

Are you able to access your cameras via your web browser?

If so, please see the MJPEG & JPEG Webcams section of the iCam Support pages, to locate your cameras MJPEG URL, here: http://skjm.com/icam/mjpeg.php

Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

I'm able to connect my Foscam cameras to IcamSource when they are hard wired to my router, but when I unplug them...No dice.

Strangely, Icam on my iphone 5 records motion events (while wired) but won't show the cameras live. Its stuck on an old frame from a few nights ago.

When I unplug the network cable from the camera, and try and reconnect, it can't find the camera.


I've tried advancing the IP address by one but it doesn't do the trick. Also, after I unplug the network cable to the router and launch IP camera tool. I don't see the IP address anymore.

Suggestions?
