ASSIGNING IP ADDRESS & ACCESSING THE WIRELESS NETWORK IP CAMERA HOME PAGE

Assigning an IP Address

To access the Wireless Network IP Camera, you need to assign an appropriate network IP address.

IMPORTANT

Please use the newly assigned IP address, do NOT use any occupied IP address, the default, or the example IP address.

It is highly recommended that you assign an IP address before placing the Wireless Network IP Camera in a remote location or network.

Network IP Address:

A network IP address is an identification code for computers or devices on a TCP/IP network. Networks using TCP/IP protocol route messages based on the IP address of the destinations within a closed Network. IP addresses can be assigned at random as long as each one is unique. However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered, public IP address to avoid duplicates. IP address can be acquired from a network administrator or an Internet service provider.

MAC (Media Access Control) Address (Ethernet)

MAC address is a hardware identification code that uniquely identifies each device of a network. The MAC layer interfaces directly with the network media. Consequently, each type of network media requires a different MAC layer. The MAC address of Wireless Network IP Camera is a 12digit number. A unique MAC address can be found on the label on the bottom of each Network IP Camera.

NOTE

Please run the IP address installation program (IP Installer.exe) on a PC that is connected to the same local network as the Wireless Network IP Camera.
