HELP: IP Camera WiFi set up
I have IP Camera (Wifi capable), can you please help me how set up using wireless (WIfi).

I can access the camera through WIRED, but when I removed the wire I can't find the IP Camera.

I have Netgear and 1Mbps internet speed....please help.

Thank you in advance

Assuming the camera has them, did you try using your web browser to log into the camera's WiFi settings page(s) while using a wired connection? You may have to specifically enable WiFi on the camera and then set it to connect to your WiFi network.

how to set it to connect to my WiFi?

I already click "save" when I choose the SSID name on my IP camera web browser.

Check your router's DHCP settings, and LAN sub-net mask settings to see if there are available LAN IP addresses outside of the DHCP range. If there are no addresses outside of the DHCP range, you will need to change the DHCP range to free some up. Then set the camera to use a static IP address outside of the DHCP range for the wireless connection. Any address outside of the DHCP range but within the sub-net range will work as long as you know of no other device is using that address.

Assuming you have WiFi encryption enabled on the router, have you confirmed the camera supports the encryption method and that you have the correct passphrase entered in the camera.

Does the router have any kind of filtering in place to restrict WiFi access?

Are any other computers wirelessly connecting to the router with no problems?

I have 2 laptop here, both can connect to router without any problem.

I don't know if there's any kind of filtering with my Netgear router. When I bought it I didn't change anything except the password, SSID and encryption.

Both my router and IP camer have the same encryption too.

try taking the security off completely as a test and see if the cameras connect - also switch the router off and cameras and then switch router on allow to settle, next the cameras - see if they connect now

Have the camera configured to have a static IP address on your LAN or have the router reserve a specific DHCP LAN address for the camera based on its MAC address.

Check the camera documentation to find out which ports it uses for viewing and control and if the ports use TCP or UDP. The camera may also allow you to change its default port assignments.

Configure the router to forward given port numbers on the WAN side to the camera ports on the LAN side. Port numbers on the WAN side do not need to match the camera port numbers on the LAN side.

If your broadband modem is running NAT, you will also need to configure port forwarding on it as well. If the modem is running as a bridge, you should not need to worry about port forwarding on the modem.

If your router supports Dynamic DNS services, you can use it keep your public IP address up to date with the service. Otherwise you will need to keep a computer on your LAN turned on and running a Dynamic DNS updater program.

Well, port forwarding is specific to the make and model of the router, so you'll have to supply those first.

See the attached graphics, you can add multiple ports in a range, or simply add individual ports.

re: picture #2

Service name is equal to the name of IP Camera?

What is local network IP #, is it the IP # on my camera?

Trigerring port = 80 (same on my IP Camera)?

what is the port start and end port range? where can I get that value?

Sorry, I have zero knowledge on this. Thanks in advance.

Service name can be anything, it's just for visual identification.

IP address is the camera, which should be on a fixed IP address.

The port start and end is whatever the camera documentation says it is.
