Setup failed F18910W

Postby jph » Tue Mar 05, 2013 8:52 pm

I can ping the camera but it doesn't show up in netstat -a and it doesn't give a picture. IP camera software alternately shows anonymous and then it goes blank and then it displays "subnet does not match..." I double click that and the network settings dialogue displays with a bunch of question marks. I filled it out but it doesn't do any good. The gateway is, Router ip is, DNS is the same. I've tried using Firefox and also IE. In the Router firmware I can see ipcamera listed in DHCP client table. Foscam tech support says the camera is bad, but I have my doubts that we exhausted all the trouble shooting steps.

i also would like to know what the deal is with the question marks instead of labels. still having trouble getting set up right out of the box. not done yet, but shouldn't be this hard. looks like the camera doesn't get an ip address via the DHCP server.

how can i get rid of the question marks and get the right labels as shown in the pictures/documentation?
