Specifically, I'm struggling with installing a Linksys Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera (WVC54GCA) within my wireless home network so that I can access it online using a web browser. I can see the video feed when I'm at home within my own wireless network, but when I am away from home and try to log in using the IP address, I get a message that the server cannot be found. Not being able to see the video stream from remote locations defeats the purpose of having the camera (I want to use it to monitor my dogs when I'm away).
I run a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.5 (Leopard), and also capable of running WinXP SP2 via BootCamp. My wireless network uses a cable modem, connected to a Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router (WNDR3300). I have tried connecting using IE, Firefox, and Safari, with no luck using any of them. Again, I can access the video stream at home - the camera itself is operating normally - it's the access via web browser that is a problem.
I've spent hours trying to figure out the problem - uninstalling and reinstalling software, resetting IP addresses, etc, with no luck. Before I break down and hire someone to come do it for me, I'm hoping that someone here can guide me through the troubleshooting and help me resolve the issue.
