    Hi,

    I recently changed my ASUS wifi to an Apple Airport Extreme (tower).
    Configured it, everything worked well - Except for my vstarcam. :(

    It somehow doesn't get an IP over the wifi.

    I tried hooking it up via the ethernet and it did get an IP, in fact it worked
    perfectly as I was able to receive the video through my iPhone (this after I setup
    the port forwarding and the port 81). I disconnected to the home wireless and
    jumped to telco's 4G and it still is working nicely.

    Can anyone shed a light on how I can have this vstarcam work via wifi?
    Just a note, this was working perfectly on ASUS via wifi.

    cheers,
    GaryS>

    UPDATE:

    I mentioned in my post (above) that;

    "After setting the port forwarding and the setting port 81, that I managed to make the camera work".

    I think that statement is not exactly accurate! I have 3 vstarcam, and after I posted the item above, I went and fiddle with the other camera, connected it directly via ethernet to the base station. It was to my surprise that without doing anything on the configuration (and I was still on 4G), to my surprise, I was able to receive the broadcast!

    I deleted the port forwarding that I setup initially just incase the the second IP cam has been assigned with the same IP address. It still worked!

    So now, I can do away with port forwarding and just settle the issue of these cams to receive their wireless IP addresses.

    cheers.
