Ad-Hoc Select this mode if you want to connect to other wireless stations in the Wireless LAN network without an Access Point or Router. Select the networks listed below and click apply to connect to the specified network. The SSID (up to 32 printable ASCII characters) is the unique name identified in a WLAN (for IC-1500Wg only). The ID prevents the unintentional merging of two colocated WLANs. You may specify a SSID for the card and then only the device with the same SSID can interconnect to the card. If you want to add one of the networks nearby to the profile list, pull down the menu, all the networks nearby will be listed and you can add one of them to the profile list. This setting is only available for Ad Hoc mode. Select the number of the radio channel used for the network. The channel setting should be the same with the network you are connecting to. The camera will use the data rate you have selected to transmit the data. Choose the authentication type you want to use. None means that you dont want any encryption for wireless. Open System means that you can use WEP for encryption or no encryption. When you select Shared Key, you must use WEP for encryption. The last option is WPA-PSK. When you select this authentication type, you can use WPA-TKIP or WPA-AES. (You must use the same Authentication and Encryption that you used in your wireless router/wireless network). The WPA-PSK key can be from 8 to 64 characters and can be letters or numbers. (You must use the same key that you used in your wireless router/wireless network). You may select 64-bit or 128-bit to encrypt transmitted data. Larger key length will provide higher level of security, but the throughput will be lower. Hexadecimal Only A-F, a-f and 0-9 are allowed to be set as WEP key. ASCII Numerical values, characters or signs are allowed to be WEP key. Select one of the keys (1~4) as the encryption key.

11. Appendix A: Router/Gateway Setup for Internet Viewing


How to view the Internet Camera over the Internet?
To view the Internet Camera across the Internet, you need to open some ports in your Router/Gateway, so that the router can pass through the incoming TCP/UDP connections from the remote PC to the Internet Camera. You will need to setup port forwarding or virtual server in your router (Please refer to your routers manual on how to open the ports). Please see the illustration as below.

These are the port protocol and number you required.

Name Setup 1 Setup 2 Setup 3 Setup 4

Protocol TCP TCP UDP UDP


Port Definition

Port 80 4321 13364 4322

LAN IP 192.168.2.3 192.168.2.3 192.168.2.3 192.168.2.3

Setup 1 Setup 2 Setup 3 Setup 4

This is the Web port. You have to configure the protocol to TCP. This is the Video port. You have to configure the protocol to TCP. This is the port for Internet Camera and Admin Utility communication. The protocol setting should be UDP. This is the port for Internet Camera and Camera Viewer communication. The protocol setting should be UDP. Viewing Internet Camera via Web Browser Over the Internet (Internet Explorer v6.x or above) If you want to view the video via Web Browser, you have to ensure the Router/Gateway has configured setup1 and setup 2. You need to know the Public IP address of your network in order to view the Internet Camera. You can find the Public IP Address in your routers WAN Status page.

Setup 1/Setup 2

For example, if your Public IP Address is 203.30.212.82. The remote user will type http://203.30.212.82 at the address bar in the Internet Explorer to view the live video over the internet. If the web port is not using default port 80, but changed to 8080. You will need to open the port TCP 8080. Then, remote user will need to type http://203.30.212.82:8080 at the address bar in the Internet Explorer to view the live video over the internet. Viewing Internet Camera via Camera Viewer Over the Internet

Setup 2/Setup 4

If you want to use Camera Viewer to view the camera, please make sure the Router/Gateway has configured setup2 and setup 4. Then, access with the Public IP Address. Setup Internet Camera via Admin Utility Over the Internet If you want to use Admin Utility to configure the Internet Camera via Internet, the Router/Gateway should configure setup 3. Then, access with the Public IP Address.

12. Appendix B: Configuring Your Internet Camera To A Wireless Network (Only for IC-1500Wg)
1) You can configure your IC-1500Wg to connect to a wireless router/network using the web browser (Internet Explorer 6.x or above).

ClickonWLAN.

Select Enable Wireless Connection and click Apply to save the setting.

ClickonEnable and then click Apply button.

42

2)

IC-1500Wg will automatically detect any wireless router/network and it will be listed in a table. In this example, connect your IC-1500Wg to your router BTBusinessHub-330.

Step3: Click Apply to save.

Step1: Select BTBusinessHub330.

Step2: Configure the Encryption that correspond to your router.

3)

After the wireless settings have been saved successfully, unplug the LAN Ethernet cable from the IC1500Wg. (You must unplug the LAN cable to allow wireless connection to take effect).

You can now view the IC-1500Wg without a LAN Ethernet cable connected to the wireless router.

If you connected the LAN Ethernet cable to the IC-1500Wg, the wireless connection wont work. The IC1500Wg only allows one connection at a time, either LAN Ethernet connection or wireless connection.
