Hello. this is my first post here.
I have a problem with my new wireless IP camera.
it's a vstarcam F6836W which needs to be connected with an ethernet cable on my router in order to set it ip for the first time.

unfortunately, the camera does not get an IP from the router. the router's LAN1 (where I put the ethernet cable) LED is turned on and blinking but I cannot see the camera in DHCP client list of my router.
Also the software provided with the camera does not detect the camera.

Do you know what I can do?

I can't understand much in this IP Cameras Set up One minute Quick Installation, but it seems to say that the camera's default IP address is 192.168.1.126. If that is the case obviously it will not appear in the Dhcp client list. But also, if that is the case, it doesn't make much sense to connect it to a router unless the router is using the same subnet. Did you get any better documentation on paper or CD?

my router is on 192.168.2.1 and not on 192.168.1.x
would that be the problem?

yes, that was the problem. it took me two days but finally solved it with a bit of your help.
I have changed the lan to 192.168.1.1 instead of 192.168.2.1
restarted the router and the camera.
now the camera appeared in my dhcp as 192.168.1.126
I accessed it with firefox with 192.168.1.126:81

thanks :)
