Hi there,

I just purchased and installed two FI8904W's. I found the product relatively easy to set up - so far I've got port forwarding/DNS stuff done for remote access. I also found a free iPhone app for mobile viewing. Just one problem...

I downloaded the "Super-Client Software for MJPEG cameras" (Win7 version), and then when I started up the software, I was prompted for an admin password. Leaving it blank doesn't work. Using "password" doesn't work. Can anyone tell me what default password to use? Thanks!

Blank and admin aren't working as passwords. What next?

Please try using the reset button on the bottom of the camera ("You can use a bent paperclip to do this if needed") or for outdoor camera models please use the reset button on the wiring harness. Holding it down for 20 seconds, while the camera is powered on.

Afterwards, you will need to connect your camera to your Router/AP using a Ethernet cable. Because the camera will be set to factory defaults, as if it just came out of the box. So you will need to completely reconfigure the camera as well.

Default user: admin
Default password: blank/none/empty

Hitting the reset didn't do anything. What next?

Please contact your seller to see how they say to proceed. Since you have tried all the known methods. If your seller is Foscam.us, please see this:

I have the same dumb (and unnecessary) problem: the "blank" password flat doesn't work. Why in the world can't these ridiculous companies test their software before selling it to us! :evil:

i just got this same problem out of the blue.

try "ADMIN" all caps, that got me in.

I know for a fact i did not set that as my password so I'm thinking maybe it's some sort of fall back default?

hope that helps someone, took me 45 minutes of guessing to figure it out.
