But ya I bet you without a doubt if you try to get Foscam service they will decline you cause their company is not on that list.
They need to have something brought to them via eBay in false advertisement ... and especially false in saying they are an Authorized Dealer when with most products that is key to warranty.
Good luck ... hopefully you never need Foscam warranty then it will be ok.

Thanks for the info, I also read through several reviews of this product and I am not convinced that this can be concealed, still looking for something good...

I've turned it off, so it won't get attention of intruders :-)

I did misunderstand what you were saying. I thought you were talking about disabling DHCP for some reason.

DHCP reservation is preferable to setting up a static IP on the device itself, because a DCHP reservation will persist even if the device (in this case, the IP camera) is reset or has new firmware flashed to it. It will keep the same IP and you won't have to change it again. If you set a static IP in the camera itself, it will keep the IP address if the power goes out, but it will lose the IP address if new firmware is flashed or if the device is reset. There are other, more technical reasons why DHCP reservation is preferable. See http://support.microso

No, you will set your device to a static IP, not your router. This goes for ANY device you own and want to set to a static IP. Game consoles for instance are a good example of something you may want to set static so you can port forward or DMZ. You want to get into your camera settings and set the network from DHCP to static by manually telling it what values to use to communicate with your network. Once all of these are set (and correct) it will communicate with your network & router by itself. If you lose power once it comes back on you won't have to worry about it being assigned a different IP address by your router and losing your port forward settings that are assigned to the previous IP address.
The easiest way for anyone to do this is to google 'How to set a static IP address' and scan through the first few hits. Do the same for 'How to port forward' and this will be the two biggest hurdles of setting up these cameras and where 90%+ of people get hung up. There's also tons of info on setting up Foscam cams specifically so utilize that too. It's all WAY easier then people on a forum trying to type out all the steps because there's a lot of them. They're really quite easy though if you follow the steps carefully.

Why unplug it while it's counting down? Patience. Let it do it's thing. Same thing with IP Camera Tool. It takes time for the camera to boot up and then it takes time for IP Camera Tool to find it. None of this is an instant process so just relax and enjoy it. You also have to set up EVERY value for the camera's network before unplugging the network cable. If you haven't done this properly you will never communicate with it via WiFi.

Also, double check after you set the wireless settings that the check mark was saved for "using wireless LAN". I think I had to save it twice on one of my cameras.

So usually it's like this:
Uncheck "Obtain IP from DHCP server"
Type the following:
IP Adr: 192.168.1.90
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
DNS server: 192.168.1.1
Http Port: Can be blank or set 80 which is the default
Uncheck "network" lamp
I think it should reboot at this point. Remember give it some time. I usually wait until it stops the patrol and then a few seconds after that.
Then in your browser type http://192.168.1.90
This should bring you to the log screen if all works correctly.

How is the sound quality on this?
Can you do two way communication with your Android device?
