Planning Your Wireless Network
Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure Modes
Planning Your Wireless Network
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is exactly like a regular local area network (LAN), except
that each computer in the WLAN uses a wireless device to connect to the network. Computers
and other devices, such as peripherals, in a WLAN share the same frequency channel and SSID,
which is an identification name for wireless devices.
Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure Modes
Unlike wired networks, wireless networks have two different modes in which they may be set
up: infrastructure and ad-hoc. An infrastructure configuration is a WLAN and wired LAN
communicating to each other through an access point. An ad-hoc configuration is computers
with wireless capabilities communicating directly with each other. Choosing between these
two modes depends on whether or not the wireless network needs to share data or peripherals
with a wired network or not.
If the computers on the wireless network need to be accessed by a wired network or need to
share a peripheral, such as a printer, with the wired network computers, the wireless network
should be set up in infrastructure mode. The basis of infrastructure mode centers around an
access point, which serves as the main point of communications in a wireless network. (A
wireless router can also be used because a wireless router incorporates the capabilities of an
access point.) Access points transmit data to PCs equipped with wireless network cards, which
can roam within a certain radial range of the access point. Multiple access points can be
arranged to work in succession to extend the roaming range, and can be set up to
communicate with your Ethernet (wired) hardware as well.
If the wireless network is relatively small and needs to share resources only with the other
computers on the wireless network, then the ad-hoc mode can be used. Ad-hoc mode allows
computers equipped with wireless transmitters and receivers to communicate directly with
each other, eliminating the need for an access point. The drawback of this mode is that
wireless-equipped computers are not able to communicate with computers on a wired
network. And, of course, communication between the wireless-equipped computers is limited
by the distance and interference directly between them.
Network Layout
The PTZ Internet Camera is compatible with all 802.11g routers, such as model number
WRVS4400N, as well as access points, including model number WAP4400N. The camera can
also communicate with network adapters, such as the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter (model
number WPC4400N) for your laptop computers, Wireless-G PCI Adapter (model numbers
WMP200) for your desktop PCs, and Wireless-G USB Adapter (model number WUSB200) for
your computers when you want to enjoy USB connectivity.
With these, and many other Linksys products, your networking options are limitless. Go to the
Linksys website at www.linksys.com/international for more information about products that
work with the PTZ Internet Camera.

Planning Your Wireless Network
Wireless Security
Wireless Security
Linksys wants to make wireless networking as safe and easy for you as possible. The current
generation of Linksys products provide several network security features, but they require
specific action on your part for implementation. So, keep the following in mind whenever you
are setting up or using your wireless network.
Security Precautions
The following is a complete list of security precautions to take (at least steps 1 through 5 should
be followed):
1. Change the default SSID.
2. Disable SSID Broadcast.
3. Change the default password for the Administrator account.
4. Change the SSID periodically.
5. Use the highest encryption algorithm possible. Use WPA if it is available. Please note that
this may reduce your network performance.
6. Change the WEP encryption keys periodically.
NOTE: Some of these security features are available only
through the network router or access point. Refer to the
router or access point’s documentation for more
information.
Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
Wireless networks are easy to find. Hackers know that in order to join a wireless network,
wireless networking products first listen for “beacon messages”. These messages can be easily
decrypted and contain much of the network’s information, such as the network’s SSID (Service
Set Identifier). Here are the steps you can take:
Change the administrator’s password regularly. With every wireless networking device you
use, keep in mind that network settings (SSID, WEP keys, etc.) are stored in its firmware. Your
network administrator is the only person who can change network settings. If a hacker gets a
hold of the administrator’s password, he, too, can change those settings. So, make it harder for a
hacker to get that information. Change the administrator’s password regularly.
SSID. There are several things to keep in mind about the SSID:
•
Disable Broadcast
•
Make it unique
•
Change it often
WVC200-210 User Guide
5
Planning Your Wireless Network
Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
Most wireless networking devices will give you the option of broadcasting the SSID. While this
option may be more convenient, it allows anyone to log into your wireless network. This
includes hackers. So, don’t broadcast the SSID.
Wireless networking products come with a default SSID set by the factory. (The Linksys default
SSID is “linksys”.) Hackers know these defaults and can check these against your network.
Change your SSID to something unique and not something related to your company or the
networking products you use.
Change your SSID regularly so that any hackers who have gained access to your wireless
network will have to start from the beginning in trying to break in.
MAC Addresses. Enable MAC Address filtering. MAC Address filtering will allow you to provide
access to only those wireless nodes with certain MAC Addresses. This makes it harder for a
hacker to access your network with a random MAC Address.
WEP Encryption. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is often looked upon as a cure-all for wireless
security concerns. This is overstating WEP’s ability. Again, this can only provide enough security
to make a hacker’s job more difficult.
There are several ways that WEP can be maximized:
•
Use the highest level of encryption possible
•
Use “Shared Key” authentication
•
Change your WEP key regularly
WPA/WPA2 Personal. Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) This method offers two encryption
methods, TKIP and AES, with dynamic encryption keys.
A network encrypted with WPA/WPA2 is more secure than a network encrypted with WEP,
because WPA/WPA2 uses dynamic key encryption. To protect the information as it passes over
the airwaves, you should enable the highest level.
Implementing encryption may have a negative impact on your network’s performance, but if
you are transmitting sensitive data over your network, encryption should be used.
These security recommendations should help keep your mind at ease while you are enjoying
the most flexible and convenient technology Linksys has to offer.
CAUTION: Always remember that each device in your
wireless network MUST use the same encryption method
and encryption key or your wireless network will not
function properly.

Overview
Connecting the PTZ Internet Camera
Overview
Before you set up the camera, connect it to a wired or wireless network. Refer to the following
sources for additional information:
•
WVC200/210 Quick Install Guide
•
Linksys Video Surveillance Application User Guide
If you need to move the camera from a wired network to a wireless network, or vice versa, go to
this section, “Moving the Camera to a Different Network.”
Camera Installation Guidelines
Consider the following guidelines before installing and mounting your cameras. While the
detection window and the degree of sensitivity can be optimized later, it is best to optimize
your camera location first.
•
Choose a location that provides adequate coverage of the area to be monitored.
•
If using the microphone in the camera, note that the cameras are designed to pick up
audio from a distance (unlike a web camera that you would place near you.)
•
If using an external microphone or speaker, place the microphone far enough away
from the speaker to avoid feedback. The volume of the speaker and the background
noise of the environment will determine the exact distance, possibly up to one yard
(one meter) away.
•
Cameras mounted outdoors should be installed in an IP66-certified enclosure to protect
the camera from the elements, while maintaining acceptable operating temperatures. If
an enclosure is used, an external microphone is required for audio.
•
If using motion detection, consider potential sources of false positives, such as trees and
shrubs, drastic light changes, wandering animals, and traffic.

Troubleshooting
Questions and Answers
This appendix provides solutions to problems that may occur during the installation and
operation of the Wireless-G Internet Camera. Read the description below to solve your
problems. If you can't find an answer here, check the Linksys website at www.linksys.com.
I can't connect to the Wireless Network Camera with my Web Browser to configure it.
It is possible that your PC's IP address is not compatible with the IP address of the Wireless
Network Camera. Use the Linksys Video Monitoring System to configure the Wireless Network
Camera with a valid IP address.
The Linksys Video Monitoring System doesn't list any Wireless Network Cameras.
Check the following:
•
The Wireless Network Camera is installed, LAN connections are OK, it is powered ON and
startup is complete.
•
Ensure that your PC and the Wireless Network Camera are on the same network
segment. (If you don't have a router, this could be the case.)
•
Ensure that your PC has the TCP/IP network protocol loaded. In Windows, this is done by
using Control Panel-Network.
If an entry for TCP/IP -> Network card is not listed, use Add - Protocol - Microsoft - TCP/IP to add
it. You then need to select the new entry (TCP/IP -> Network card), click Properties, and
configure the IP Address tab. If your LAN has a DHCP Server, you can select "Obtain an IP
Address automatically". Otherwise, you must select "Specify an IP Address", and enter values for
IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway. All devices on your LAN must use compatible values.
Remember that each device needs a unique IP Address, and the same Subnet Mask.
When I try to connect to the Wireless Network Camera, I get prompted for a user name and password.
You should be prompted for a user name and password when you first connect to the camera.
Enter the Administrator ID and Password set on the User screen. The Username/Password
prompt indicates that the Administrator has restricted access to specified users. Ask the
Administrator for your Username and Password. If this has not been set, it should still be the
default of admin/admin.
I can't connect to the Wireless Network Camera using a Wireless connection.
If a LAN cable is connected to the LAN port, the Wireless interface is disabled. Only one
interface can be active. In order to switch from wired to wireless, or wireless to wired, the
camera will need to be rebooted to switch modes.
Check that your PC and the Wireless Network Camera have compatible Wireless settings.
•
Mode (Infrastructure or Ad-hoc) must be correct.
WVC200-210 User Guide
44
Windows Help
•
SSID must match.
•
Wireless security settings must match.
•
In Ad-hoc mode, the Channel should match, although this is often not required.
Video quality may suddenly deteriorate.
This can happen when an additional viewer connects to the Wireless Network Camera,
overloading the camera or the available bandwidth. The image size and quality can be adjusted
to cater for the required number of viewers and the available bandwidth.
The motion detection feature doesn't send me any e-mails.
It may be that the SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) server used by the camera to send the
e-mail will not accept mail. (This is to prevent Spam being sent from the server.). Try using a
different SMTP server, or contact your ISP to see if SMTP access is being blocked.
You must use a static IP address (you can copy the DHCP Address), but the DNS server must be
that of the ISP and not of the router. You can find this address in the router's status log for WAN
IP Address.
Using the motion detection feature, I receive e-mails which don't show any moving objects.
The motion detection feature doesn't actually detect motion. It compares frames to see if they
are different. Major differences between frames are assumed to be caused by moving objects.
But the motion detector can also be triggered by sudden changes in the level of available light
or movement of the camera itself.
Try to avoid these situations. The motion detection feature works best in locations where there
is good steady illumination, and the camera is mounted securely. This feature can NOT be used
if the camera is outdoors.
The image is blurry.
Try cleaning the dome, or adjusting the Image Quality setting on the Image screen. Video
created will the lower settings will contain less detail; this is the trade-off for using less
bandwidth.
Windows Help
Almost all wireless products require Microsoft Windows. Windows is the most used operating
system in the world and comes with many features that help make networking easier. These
features can be accessed through Windows Help and are described in this appendix.
TCP/IP
Before a computer can communicate with an access point or router, TCP/IP must be enabled.
TCP/IP is a set of instructions, or protocol, all PCs follow to communicate over a network. This is
true for wireless networks as well. Your PCs will not be able to utilize wireless networking
without having TCP/IP enabled. Windows Help provides complete instructions on enabling
TCP/IP.

Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it.
By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share
and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public
License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered
by the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public
Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free
software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if
you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights
or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must
give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can
get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license
which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone
understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by
someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the
original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'
reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the
danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect
making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be
licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License.
The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the
term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".

Software Licenses:
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License;
they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from
the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program
(independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on
what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it,
in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to
this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a
copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option
offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work
based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of
Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed
the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains
or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to
all third parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must
cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or
display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that
there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may
redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of
this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such
an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an
announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work
are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and
separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections
when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part
of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the
terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and
thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written
entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative
or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or
with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not
bring the other work under the scope of this License.

Software Licenses:
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object
code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do
one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily
used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for
a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange;
or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute
corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution
and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer,
in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it.
For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it
contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or
binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system
on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a
designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place
counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy
the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided
under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the
Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However,
parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing
else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These
actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or
distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the
Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on
the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.

Software Licenses:
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other
reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order,
agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you
from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royaltyfree redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through
you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely
from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance,
the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply
in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right
claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting
the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license
practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to
the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other
system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the
rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by
patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program
under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those
countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In
such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public
License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but
may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version
number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of
following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License,
you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution
conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving
the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE
PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE

Software Licenses:
STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE
PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE,
YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY
COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE
PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA
BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE
OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR
OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
