I'm Lost. Posts here say it's easy but I can't get it.
Assuming you have a WVC200 webcam and WRT54G broadband router, read this at the beginning of this thread. Follow the instructions precisely. It is working for me and, from what I am reading, for others, too.
Maybe you are running into problems because you're using different equipment?
carlbeck, Sorry but I have no experience with the WVC54GC. I could read your posting 10 times but your Linksys set them up differently then the WVC200. Have you tried doing a search on sololink & wvc54gc? Or calling Linksys tech support (I know, I know, they don't instill confidence!)?
Beretta, To access the camera from sololink or DynDNS you need to enter the camera password which you entered when you first set it up (i.e. when you physically connected it via ethernet cable to your PC). If you did not follow the recommendation to change the default password it should still be set to username = admin and password=admin.
If you cannot remember the password you setup you will need to press the reset button on the camera and go through the setup process again.
You are not giving us enough information to diagnose the problem you are having and what you are saying seems confused so unless you can detail exactly what you are trying to do we won't be able to help.
I have WRT54GS router and the WVC54GC compact internet camera and I got it to work with dyndns.org.
(1) I followed the instructions on the very first page of this thread *except* for step 7 since there was no option other than Sololink. Just make sure to follow the instructions as well for installing the dyndns updater software.
(2) I then went and followed the instructions from tpearson on the 2nd page re: putting in the dyndns.org info on the sololink fields. i did get that certificate error and did the 'update now' button thing. I noticed that it didn't save my info on that page, though, but hey, maybe it helped somehow.
(3) Went to embguru's advice right below tpearson's and updated the port forwarding info in my router (I kept the port at 1024).
(4) At this point I tried putting in the http://username.dyndns.org:1024 but got a 'not found' page on internet explorer 7. So I tried going into my router settings (firmware v. 1.52.0). On the first page of the router settings, there is a tab there for "DDNS". I went in there and selected the dyndns.org for the DDNS service and entered the same info there that I used when I set up my user and hostname info at dyndns.org.
(5) Now my camera works when I view it within my network at the above URL!
(6) Just for kicks, I went into my personal firewall (Norton Internet Security suite) settings and made sure that the dyndns updater program always had 'permit'. I also updated the secondary rules and created an inbound rule for my cam at port 1024.
(7) I called my in-laws who were vacationing in Florida and asked them to check. They can see me too!
Hopefully this helps! Not exactly sure which of these steps were necessary, but I thought I'd document them all anyways....I basically just tried to throw everything at it. This is the first day I did it, so I will keep tabs on my cam to see if the settings will keep it going for at least a week
