I’m having many problems and I think my Network Camera is broken. How can I confirm absolutely that it is working normally? [Image_display]

Answer... Reason
If you experience any difficulties using your Network Camera, the most likely cause is a wrong setting on the camera, router, or PC or change in the network environment. Occasionally faulty hardware (such as cables or network hubs) may be the problem. If you think your Network Camera may be malfunctioning, the following is a description of how to confirm whether or not the Network Camera is functioning properly.

Procedure
In this procedure, the Network Camera will be connected directly to the PC and network settings on both devices will be edited. All settings on the Network Camera will be reset. The procedure will take several minutes to complete.


  1. Press the CLEAR SETTING (FACTORY DEFAULT RESET) button on the back of the Network Camera. All settings (except date and time) will be reset to their factory default values.

  2.  
  3. Connect the Network Camera and the PC, either directly or through a switching hub, and disconnect all other devices connected to the hub for the purpose of this troubleshooting. When connecting directly, use a category 5 crossover cable. When connecting via a switching hub, use a category 5 straight-through cable

  4.  
  5. Open the TCP/IP property window on the PC.
    This procedure varies by operating system. Follow the instructions below depending on which operating system you are using.
     
    Windows 95, 98, and Me
    [Start] -› [Settings] -› [Control Panel] -› [Network] -› Select [TCP/IP] with adaptor in use -› [Properties] -› [Specify an IP address] -› Proceed to step 4 below.
     
    Windows NT
    Must be performed by a user with administrator privileges.
    [Start] -› [Settings] -› [Control Panel] -› [Network] -› [Protocol] tab -› [TCP/IP Protocol] -› [Properties] -› Select [Adapter] in use -› [Specify an IP address] -› Proceed to step 4 below.
     
    Windows 2000
    [Start] -› [Settings] -› [Control Panel] -› [Network and Dial-up Connections] -› [Local Area Connection Icon] in use -› [Properties] -› Select Internet Protocol [TCP/IP] -› [Properties] -› [Use the following IP address] -› Proceed to step 4 below.
     
    Windows XP
    Must be performed by a user with administrator privileges.
    [Start] -› [Settings] -› [Control Panel] -› [Network and Internet Connections] -› [Network Connections] -› [Local Area Connection Icon] in use -› [Properties] -› Select Internet Protocol [TCP/IP] -› [Properties] -› [Use the following IP address] -› Proceed to step 4 below.
     
  6. Make a note of your current TCP/IP settings (IP address, Subnet Mask, etc.). Beginning with the next step, most of your current settings will be edited and it is important to remember your current settings so you can restore them later.

  7.  
  8. At [Specify an IP Address] or [Use the following IP address], enter “192.168.0.252”. Under [Subnet Mask], enter “255.255.255.0”.

  9.  
  10. Click [OK] to enable the new settings.
    If using Windows 95, 98, or Me, the PC must be restarted for the new settings to take effect.

  11.  
  12. Launch the web browser and type “192.168.0.253” (the Network Camera's default IP address) in the address field, then press [Enter].
    If you use a proxy server when accessing the internet, change the web browser’s settings so that the proxy server is not used when accessing the Network Camera.

  13.  
  14. The Network Camera’s Top Page should be displayed, indicating that your Network Camera is functioning properly. You may now connect the Network Camera to your network again via a switching hub, reconnect other devices to the network, and restore your settings.
    If you still have difficulty viewing the Top Page or accessing the Network Camera, faulty settings or faulty cabling may be the cause. Check all hardware as well as the network and TCP/IP settings on the camera and on the PC.
