I have a Foscam f18910w IP Wireless camera and I was setting it up using the iOS Owlr app. I plug the camera into the router using the ethernet cable the app picks it up and it works great. The problem is, when I unplug it (it does have a wireless antenna) it disconnects and looses connection. 
My question is, how do I do I keep the camera functioning using the wireless antenna so I do not have to be connected via the ethernet? 
Thanks a lot!

One may have to set a static address in the router for the cam, otherwise the router will assign a new address to the cam each time it connects.

You have to setup the wireless with the camera wired.  Then you can disconnect the wire and it will use the wireless to connect.
