Compact Wireless-G Internet Video Camera
Chapter 1: Introduction
Welcome
Thank you for choosing the Linksys Compact Wireless-G Internet Video Camera. This Camera sends live video
through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world! This compact, self-contained unit lets you keep an
eye on your home, your kids, your workplace—whatever’s important to you.
How does the Camera do all of this? Unlike standard “web cams” that require an attached PC, the Internet Video
Camera contains its own web server, so it can connect directly to a network, either over Wireless-G (802.11b)
networking, or over 10/100 Ethernet cable. The advanced MPEG-4 video compression produces a high-quality,
high-framerate, up to 320 x 240 audio/video stream.
The Internet Video Camera’s unique form-factor and wireless connectivity allows you to mount it on a wall nearly
anywhere, or slip it into its included stand for desktop use. Once it’s connected to your home network, you can
“see what it sees” from any PC in the house, while the audio/video stream is secured from the outside world,
hidden behind your Router. If you want the video to be visible from outside your home network, you can open an
appropriate port on the Router, and then create password-protected accounts to manage access to the Camera,
or leave it wide open for the world to see. The SoloLink DDNS Service (trial sign-up included) lets you access your
Camera using an easy-to-remember “name”, even if your home Internet connection uses a dynamic IP address.
802.11g: An IEEE wireless networking
standard that specifies a maximum
data transfer rate of 54Mbps, an
operating frequency of 2.4GHz, and
backward compatibility with 802.11b
devices.
Ethernet: an IEEE standard network
protocol that specifies how data is
placed on and retrieved from a
common transmission medium.
You can also turn on Security Mode, which tells the Camera to send you an e-mail message with a short video
attached to up to three e-mail addresses whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log onto the
live video stream if the situation warrants. The included Multi-Camera Viewer & Recorder Utility lets you record
the video stream to your local hard drive, “live” or on a predetermined schedule.
Use the instructions in this Guide to help you integrate the Camera into your network. These instructions should
be all you need to get the most out of the Compact Wireless-G Internet Video Camera.

Compact Wireless-G Internet Video Camera
Chapter 2: Planning Your Wireless Network
Introduction
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 wireless-equipped computers 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.
LAN (Local Area Network): the
computers and networking products
that make up the network in your home
or office.
WLAN (Wireless Local Area
Network): A group of computers and
associated devices that communicate
with each other wirelessly.
Infrastructure: configuration in which
a wireless network is bridged to a
wired network via an access point.
Ad-hoc: a group of wireless devices
communicating directly to each other
(peer-to-peer) without the use of an
access point.
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, in Ad-Hoc mode, 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 Compact Wireless-G Internet Video Camera is compatible with all 802.11b and 802.11g routers, as well as
access points. The Camera will also communicate with network adapters, such as the Wireless-B and Wireless-G

Chapter 7: Setting up the Linksys SoloLink™ DDNS Service
Overview
This chapter will briefly discuss the Linksys SoloLink DDNS Service, explain how to set up your SoloLink account,
and describe how to register additional Cameras on your SoloLink account. You need only one SoloLink account.
Once you have set up your account, you can register additional Cameras, one at a time, through each Camera’s
Web-based Utility. This way each Camera can take advantage of the SoloLink DDNS Service.
Introduction
The SoloLink DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) Service lets you assign a fixed host and domain name to a
dynamic Internet IP address. The instructions in this chapter will guide you through the setup needed for use of
the SoloLink DDNS Service. For the most current information about the SoloLink DDNS Service, visit
www.linksys.com/sololink. For a free, 90-day trial period of your SoloLink account, use the Access ID Card
included with the Camera.
You may want to use the Linksys SoloLink DDNS Service if one of the following applies to you:
Dynamic IP Address - Your Internet service assigns you a dynamic IP address. Many Internet service providers
(ISPs) assign a new IP address to your connection from time to time (for security purposes), or whenever you
disconnect and reconnect. The SoloLink service keeps track of your network’s address, even when it changes, so
you can “find” the Camera.
Figure 7-1: SoloLink Service
Convenience - There are a couple of ways the SoloLink service can be convenient. If you have a static IP address,
you can use the SoloLink service to enter a “name” and port number for remote access of the Camera via the
Internet. There’s no need to type an entire IP address. For example, you can give a Camera a “name” such as
cam1.myhouse.ourlinksys.com.
Also, some DDNS services require your PC to continuously run software that lets them keep track of your IP
address. If your PC isn’t powered on when your IP address changes, you won’t be able to find the Camera on the
Internet. The SoloLink service keeps track of where the Camera is.
Setup Wizard for the SoloLink DDNS Service
1. On the Welcome or Congratulations screen of the Setup Wizard, click the Setup SoloLink DDNS Service
button.

Appendix B: 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. Enable MAC Address Filtering.
5. Change the SSID periodically.
6. Use the highest encryption algorithm possible. Use WPA if it is available. Please note that this may reduce
your network performance.
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.
7. Change the encryption keys periodically.
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.
Appendix B: Wireless Security

66

SSID. There are several things to keep in mind about the SSID:
1. Disable Broadcast
2. Make it unique
3. Change it often
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:
1. Use the highest level of encryption possible
2. Use “Shared Key” authentication
3. Change your WEP key regularly
IMPORTANT: 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.
WPA. Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is the newest and best available standard in Wi-Fi security. For encryption,
WPA Personal automatically uses Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), which incorporates Message Integrity
Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers. For the Passphrase field, enter the key shared by the devices
on your wireless network. (This key should have 8-63 characters and can also be called a WPA shared key or preshared key.)

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.

Appendix D: 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.
Shared Resources
If you wish to share printers, folders, or files over your network, Windows Help provides complete instructions on
using shared resources.
Network Neighborhood/My Network Places
Other PCs on your network will appear under Network Neighborhood or My Network Places (depending upon the
version of Windows you’re running). Windows Help provides complete instructions on adding PCs to your
network.
