Windows 7: I need help accessing wireless IP Camera

I need help accessing wireless IP Camera

Hi All,

Trying to set up a Foscam wireless IP Camera as a baby monitor. I have it is working great when I access it directly by a static IP address and Port that I assigned via my Router (Actiontec).

I went to and set up a Dynamic DNS with a Hostname of

I set the Port Forwarding in the Router to 6105 for IP address of the camera.
I set the DDNS in the Router with the Hostname, login name and password.

With the following in Firefox

Firefox times out and can't find the camera. If I drop the Port and use

It shows the login for the Router master account and asks for the password. If I put that in, it then goes to the Router's Firmware set up so the Router is at least accepting that much.

I have tried messing with the Router Firewall, the Comodo Firewall and NoScript settings and even disabled them all, and still nothing when using the DDNS Hostname.

I watched several video tutorials and followed them exactly, but when it came to using the DDNS-Hostname it failed.

Day two -- how can I make this work?

You should not enable remote administration of the router. If you have a smart phone, you can turn off Wi-Fi and surf to the camera's webaddress : port.

Maybe some forum member is familiar an Actiontec router and can help you get the settings right. If not, contact your ISP (Verizon?).

Set up Wireless Security Camera
I have a router right now. I want to put a security camera outside, but all my hardware is downstairs. It would be very hard to use an Ethernet connection. So, would it be good to put a router in my garage as an access point, and then direct connect a camera?
