Based on the settings in this window you can see some information about the network. Your network may be different. Notice that the Gateway is Remember or write down the Gateway router IP address as you will need it later when setting up remote access. Your IP addresses may look different. Other common IP schemes are X and X where X represents the last number and the address of a device. Everything on your local network will have one of these IP addresses. For instance, check the Wi-Fi settings on your iPhone or iPad. The last number of a typical valid IP address will be between 2 and For example on this network valid IP addresses range from Again, the first three digits of your network may be different, so always substitute yours wherever needed.

The DHCP scope is the range of addresses that your router assigns to devices that do not have a statically assigned IP. It automatically gives numbers from this pool. I just looked at my iPhone and saw its IP address is So it is probable that the DHCP scope of the connected router is You can guess like this, or you can view your router manual or configuration to be sure.

Just remember that each camera you configure must have its own unique IP address. Setup Foscam camera Wi-Fi if you plan on using the camera without the Ethernet cable attached. Your camera and its new IP address should show up in the list.

You should now be able to login to the camera at that address. Add the camera to Foscam Pro app and test it. Your camera should appear in a list.

If you want to see your current public IP, visit http: There are various DDNS address servers on the web that will work with your wireless router or Foscam camera. One of the most popular and free options is http: Follow this guide to setup your no-ip address: Choose an external port number.

When outside your home network, your DDNS address will direct outside web traffic to your router, but we need to get the outside traffic to your specific camera on the network. We do this with a port number. Your DDNS address is similar to a street address. Your remote port number will act similar to a specific numbered address on that street.

Port numbers can range between 1 through , however many are reserved and some are used by other programs. Now, I can enter http: Using either http: What am I missing?


I don't see any other settings that seems relevant. Go to Solution. I just found the answer after searching other forums. Was your question answered? Mark it as a solution! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was hitting my head against the wall trying to figure this out.

Can’t find what you’re looking for?

Hi, that solution above did not work for me. I am confused on the port thing I set up teh forwarding but when I check if it's open it does not work. My settings are:. When you test, are you really testing from outside your network, or are you using a PC inside your network, and browsing to the external IP?

If so, that is probably not going to work, because of the way most routers are configured by default You can leave the internal port at 80, but when you try to browse to the device from the outside, you will have to use the full URL ort syntax, i. I have the Foscam IP cam. Now I am unable to access through my external address WAN. I went to yougetsignal. No matter what I try, the ports seem to be blocked. My port forwarding worked fine until the Arris was added. Try setting the firewall in the Arris gateway to a lower security level.

I would advise against switching it off completely though. I did however find an error in my gateway config.

So now I do have port forwarding working when I use one of the open port checkers. But still can not access the camera remotely. When you try to connect to the casmera, you are using a device outside your LAN, right? You are not trying to access the public IP from a device on your network? Yes I am away from my LAN Although on my iPod , I can connect to the camera when at home.

Port 80 is showing to be open when I test it. There are a lot of other posts about people having problems with port forwarding on the Comcast gateways. Some seem to get it working by lowering the firewall securitysetting on the gateway to it's minimum, ad others don't.

I don'tthink anyone has figured out why yet.

The only other advice I can give you is to have the Arris gateway put in full bridge mode,and use your own router to provide WiFi signal and configureport forwarding on it. You will have to call in to the Comcast help line to get the gateway put inbridge mode. So wait, you have two routers on your network, your own AND the Arris gateway? If so, please describe exactly how they are connected So, now I am attempting to only use the Arris TG gateway. I do wonder however, if port triggering might be a solution.

I have not attempted any port triggering on the Arris TG gateway, as I am not sure what to add in the fields for triggering.. Port truggering isn't the way to go. It is usually used for games or applications that may need to initiate a connection back to a server on the internet.

A network camera doesn't need to do that. The other possibility and I don't have an Arris gateway, so I don't know this for sure is that the gateway could be blocking the protocols used by the camera. I am not sure what reasons you have for wanting to use your Arris specifically for the other wireless devices on your network, but the incidence of problems with the Comcast gateways that users have reported on these boards is why I recommended using your own router and bridging the Arris.

I suppose my basic reason for wanting to use the Arris TG gateway for all my devices is that, it should be able to handle them and eliminate the need for bridging another router. I feel fairly certain I can correct my Foscam issue if I went the bridging route. And I may have to fall back on that as a solution one day.

At least it appears so.
