    I have a new wireless ip camera that works great and I can view it from any computer in my home after entering user name and password.
    However, when trying to access from outside my home the ip address with the port number at the end doesn't even ask for a user name and password. It just comes up with a can't connect error.
    I have a Netgear router and can get inside to see connected devices and I'm guessing somewhere in here I need to give a permission to view this camera outside my home network.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nearby using your Wi-Fi, or over the internet? If the latter you have to use your public IP address and have to set your router to forward the needed port(s) to the camera.

    Over the internet at work, I get a connection error. The ip address looks something like 192.166.1.6:1025 and works from my home network. However when I try it from my work computer I get an error. However, on my home network I can type this in and all I need is a user name and password.

    I'm not sure how to forward the port for my ip camera if that is what will fix this. I have NetGear router. Please see below and thank you SO MUCH! Leona

    Find your router at portforward.com for tailored instructions.

    Private IP addresses assigned to your LAN (e.g., 192.168.1.x) are not rout-able over the internet.

    One way to get your public IP is with whatismyip.com.
