How to configure WEP security:
If you select 64bit in Hex format, you must type 10 values in
the following range (0~F, hexadecimal), or 64bit in ASCII
format, you must type 5 values in the following range (0~9,
A~Z and a~z Alphanumeric).
If you select 128bit in Hex format, you must type 26 values
(0~F, hexadecimal), or 128bit in ASCII format, you must type
13 values in the following range (0~9, A~Z and a~z
Alphanumeric).
ASCII
HEX
64 bit
5*X
10*Y
128 bit
13*X
26*Y
X=[(0~9, A~Z, a~z Alphanumeric]
Y=[0~9, A~F Hexadecimal]
Be sure that the NetCamera NVW and the wireless station
(AP) were set in the same key.
WEP is not completely secure. If possible please use WPAPSK.
Ad-hoc Mode: An Ad-hoc network is a local area network or
other small network, especially one with wireless or temporary
plug-in connections, in which some of the network devices are
part of the network only for the duration of a communications
session. Users in the network can share files, print to a shared
printer, and access the Internet with a shared modem. In this
kind of network, new devices can be quickly added; however,
users can only communicate with other wireless LAN
computers that are in this wireless LAN workgroup, and are
within range.
Infrastructure Networking Mode: The difference between
Infrastructure network and Ad-hoc network is that the former
one includes an Access Point. In an Infrastructure network, the
Access Point can manage the bandwidth to maximize
A02-IPCAM4-W54
38
NetCamera NVW
bandwidth utilization. Additionally, the Access Point enables
users on a wireless LAN to access an existing wired network,
allowing wireless users to take advantage of the wired
networks resources, such as Internet, email, file transfer, and
printer sharing. The scale and range of the Infrastructure
networking are larger and wider than that of the Ad-hoc
networking.
The range of radio frequencies used by IEEE 802.11g wireless
devices is called a “channel”. Channels available depend on
your geographical area. You may have a choice of channels
(for your region) so you should use a different channel than an
adjacent AP (access point) to reduce interference. Interference
occurs when radio signals from different access points overlap
causing interference and degrading performance.
Adjacent channels partially overlap however. To avoid
interference due to overlap, your AP should be on a channel at
least five channels away from a channel that an adjacent AP is
using. For example, if your region has 11 channels and an
adjacent AP is using channel 1, then you need to select a
channel between 6 or 11.
For some European Country, it may have its own domain;
users are responsible for ensuring that the channel set
configuration is in compliance with the regulatory standards of
these countries.

data communication.
Question
Answer
What is Spread Spectrum?
Spread Spectrum technology is a wideband radio frequency
technique developed by the military for use in reliable, secure,
mission-critical communications systems. It is designed to
trade off bandwidth efficiency for reliability, integrity, and
security. In other words, more bandwidth is consumed than in
the case of narrowband transmission, but the trade-off
produces a signal that is, in effect, louder and thus easier to
detect, provided that the receiver knows the parameters of the
spread-spectrum signal being broadcast. If a receiver is not
tuned to the right frequency, a spread-spectrum signal looks
like background noise. There are two main alternatives, Direct
Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Frequency Hopping
Spread Spectrum (FHSS).
Question
What is DSSS? What is FHSS? And what are their
differences?
Frequency-Hopping Spread-Spectrum (FHSS) uses a
narrowband carrier that changes frequency in a pattern that is
known to both transmitter and receiver. Properly synchronized,
the net effect is to maintain a single logical channel. To an
unintended receiver, FHSS appears to be short-duration
impulse noise. Direct-Sequence Spread-Spectrum (DSSS)
generates a redundant bit pattern for each bit to be
transmitted. This bit pattern is called a chip (or chipping code).
The longer the chip, the greater the probability that the original
data can be recovered. Even if one or more bits in the chip are
damaged
during
transmission,
statistical
techniques
embedded in the radio can recover the original data without
the need for retransmission. To an unintended receiver, DSSS
appears as low power wideband noise and is rejected
(ignored) by most narrowband receivers.

Question
Answer
Would the information be intercepted while transmitting
on air?
WLAN features two-fold protection in security. On the
hardware side, as with Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum
technology, it has the inherent security feature of scrambling.
On the software side, WLAN offers the encryption function
(WEP) to enhance security and access control.
Question
Answer
What is the IEEE 802.11g standard?
Approved in June, 2003 as an IEEE standard for wireless local
area networks (WLANs), 802.11g offers wireless transmission
over relatively short distances at up to 54 megabits per second
(Mbps) compared with the 11 megabits per second of the
802.11b (Wi-Fi) standard. Like 802.11b, 802.11g operates in
the 2.4 GHz range and is thus compatible with it.
Question
Answer
What is WEP?
WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy, a data privacy mechanism
based on a 64-bit or 128-bit shared key algorithm, as
described in the IEEE 802.11 standard.
Question

APPENDIX B: Trouble Shooting
This chapter covers potential problems and the corresponding remedies.
Question
I cannot access the IP Wireless Security Night Vision
Camera from a web browser.
Answer
The possible cause might be the IP Address for the IP
Wireless Security Night Vision Camera is already being used
by another device. To correct the possible problem, you need
to first disconnect the IP Wireless Security Night Vision
Camera from the network. Then run the PING utility.
The PING (Packet Internet Groper) command can determine
whether a specific IP address is accessible by sending a
packet to the specific address and waiting for a reply. It can
also provide a very useful tool to confirm if the IP address
conflicts with the camera over the network.
Follow the step-by-step procedure below to utilize the PING
command. However, you must disconnect the camera from
the network first.
Start a DOS window.
Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the
camera.
The succeeding replies as illustrated below will provide useful
explanation to the cause of the problem with the camera IP
address.
Question
I cannot access the IP Wireless Security Night Vision
Camera from a web browser.
Answer
Another possible reason is the IP Address is located on a
different subnet. To fix the problem, run the PING utility. If the
utility returns “no response” or similar, the finding is probably
correct, then you should proceed as follows:In Windows 95/98/2000 and Windows NT, double check the IP
A02-IPCAM4-W54
62
NetCamera NVW
Address of the IP Wireless Security Night Vision Camera is
within the same subnet as your workstation.
Click “Start”, “Setting”, “Control Panel”, and the “Network” icon.
Select TCP/IP from the “Network” dialog box and from the
“TCP/IP Properties” dialog box click “Specify an IP address”.
If the IP Wireless Security Night Vision Camera is situated on
a different subnet than your workstation, you will not be able to
set the IP address from this workstation. To verify make sure
the first 3 sections of the IP address of the IP Wireless
Security Night Vision Camera corresponds to the first 3
sections of the workstation. Therefore the IP address of the IP
Wireless Security Night Vision Camera must be set from a
workstation on the same subnet.
Question
I cannot access the IP Wireless Security Night Vision
Camera from a web browser.
Answer
Other possible problems might be due to the network cable.
Try replacing your network cable. Test the network interface
of the product by connecting a local computer to the unit,
utilizing a standard Crossover (hub to hub) Cable. If the
problem is not solved the IP Wireless Security Night Vision
Camera might be faulty.

should receive a reply similar to the following
(…bytes = 32 time = 2 ms).
•
The network device utilized by the IP Wireless
Security Night Vision Camera is not functioning
properly such as hubs or switches. Confirm the
power for the devices are well connected and
functioning.
The wireless connection might be at fault. In ad-hoc mode
make sure the IP Wireless Security Night Vision Camera
wireless channel and ESS-ID is set to match the PC/Notebook
wireless channel and ESS-ID for direct communication. Under
infrastructure mode make sure the ESS-ID on the
PC/Notebook and the IP Wireless Security Night Vision
Camera must match with the Access Point's ESS-ID.
Question
Answer
Why does the IP Wireless Security Night Vision Camera
work locally but not externally?
•
Might be caused from the firewall protection. Need
to check the Internet firewall with your system
administrator.
•

APPENDIX D: GPIO
Its back panel contains 3 pairs of connectors (2 input and 1 output) allowing the
camera to communicate with different elements of a building, such as electric doors
and light switches or security related devices such as alarms.
Most of its applications are security. Warnings to the one break into house/building.
Some people user it to setting fire alarms.
NetCamera NV supports 2 sensors in (DI) and 1 alarm out (DO).
External DI sensors can be attached via the GPIO port at the rear of the camera. The
external sensor can be normally open, or normally closed. A normally open sensor

NUMBERS
10BASE-T
10BASE-T is Ethernet over UTP Category III,IV, or V unshielded
twisted-pair media.
100BASE-TX
The two-pair twisted-media implementation of 100BASE-T is
called 100BASE-TX.
802.11g
An IEEE standard for wireless local area networks. It offers
transmissions speeds at up to 54 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band.
A
Access point
It is the hardware interface between a wireless LAN and a wired
LAN. The access point attaches to the wired LAN through an
Ethernet connection.
Applet
Applets are small Java programs that can be embedded in an
HTML page. The rule at the moment is that an applet can only
make an Internet connection to the computer form that the applet
was sent.
ASCII
American Standard Code For Information Interchange, it is the
standard method for encoding characters as 8-bit sequences of
binary numbers, allowing a maximum of 256 characters.
ARP
Address Resolution Protocol. ARP is a protocol that resides at
the TCP/IP Internet layer that delivers data on the same network
by translating an IP address to a physical address.
AVI

B
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol is an Internet protocol that can automatically
configure a network device in a diskless workstation to give its
own IP address.
C
Communication
Communication has four components: sender, receiver,
message, and medium. In networks, devices and application
tasks and processes communicate messages to each other over
media. They represent the sender and receivers. The data they
send is the message. The cabling or transmission method they
use is the medium.
Connection
In networking, two devices
communicate with each other.

D
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol was developed by Microsoft
a protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a
network. With dynamic addressing, a device can have a different
IP address every time it connects to the network. In some
systems, the device's IP address can even change while it is still
connected. DHCP also supports a mix of static and dynamic IP
addresses. This simplifies the task for network administrators
because the software keeps track of IP addresses rather than
requiring an administrator to manage the task. This means a new
computer can be added to a network without the hassle of
manually assigning it a unique IP address. DHCP allows the
specification for the service provided by a router, gateway, or
other network device that automatically assigns an IP address to
any device that requests one

DNS
Domain Name System is an Internet service that translates
domain names into IP addresses. Since domain names are
alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The Internet however, is
really based on IP addresses every time you use a domain name
the DNS will translate the name into the corresponding IP
address.
For
example,
the
domain
name
www.network_camera.com might translate to 192.167.222.8.
E
Enterprise network An enterprise network consists of collections of networks
connected to each other over a geographically dispersed area.
The enterprise network serves the needs of a widely distributed
company and operates the company’s mission-critical
applications.
Ethernet
The most popular LAN communication technology. There are a
variety of types of Ethernet, including 10 Mbps (traditional
Ethernet), 100 Mbps (Fast Ethernet), and 1,000 Mbps (Gigabit
Ethernet). Most Ethernet networks use Category 5 cabling to
carry information, in the form of electrical signals, between
devices. Ethernet is an implementation of CSMA/CD that
operates in a bus or star topology.
F
Fast Ethernet
Fast Ethernet, also called 100BASE-T, operates at 10 or
100Mbps per second over UTP, STP, or fiber-optic media.
Firewall
Firewall is considered the first line of defense in protecting private
information. For better security, data can be encrypted. A system
designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private
network. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized
Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the
Internet, especially Intranets all messages entering or leaving the
A02-IPCAM4-W54
76

intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message
and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
G
Gateway
A gateway links computers that use different data formats
together.
Group
Groups consist of several user machines that have similar
characteristics such as being in the same department.
H
HEX
Short for hexadecimal refers to the base-16 number system,
which consists of 16 unique symbols: the numbers 0 to 9 and the
letters A to F. For example, the decimal number 15 is
represented as F in the hexadecimal numbering system. The
hexadecimal system is useful because it can represent every
byte (8 bits) as two consecutive hexadecimal digits. It is easier for
humans to read hexadecimal numbers than binary numbers.
I
IEEE
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
Intranet
This is a private network, inside an organization or company, that
uses the same software you will find on the public Internet. The
only difference is that an Intranet is used for internal usage only.
Internet
The Internet is a globally linked system of computers that are
logically connected based on the Internet Protocol (IP). The
Internet provides different ways to access private and public
information worldwide.
Internet address
To participate in Internet communications and on Internet
Protocol-based networks, a node must have an Internet address
that identifies it to the other nodes. All Internet addresses are IP
A02-IPCAM4-W54
77
NetCamera NVW
addresses
IP
Internet Protocol is the standard that describes the layout of the
basic unit of information on the Internet (the packet) and also
details the numerical addressing format used to route the
information. Your Internet service provider controls the IP
address of any device it connects to the Internet. The IP
addresses in your network must conform to IP addressing rules.
In smaller LANs, most people will allow the DHCP function of a
router or gateway to assign the IP addresses on internal
networks.
IP address
IP address is a 32-binary digit number that identifies each sender
or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the
Internet. For example 80.80.80.69 is an IP address, it is the
closet thing the Internet has to telephone numbers. When you
“call” that number, using any connection methods, you get
connected to the computer that “owns” that IP address.
ISP
Internet Service Provider, is a company that maintains a network
that is linked to the Internet by way of a dedicated communication
line. An ISP offers the use of its dedicated communication lines
to companies or individuals who can’t afford the high monthly
cost for a direct connection.
J
JAVA
Java is a programming language that is specially designed for
writing programs that can be safely downloaded to your computer
through the Internet without the fear of viruses. It is an objectoriented multi-thread programming best for creating applets and
applications for the Internet, Intranet and other complex,
distributed network.

LAN
Local Area Network a computer network that spans a relatively
small area sharing common resources. Most LANs are confined
to a single building or group of buildings.
N
NAT
Network Address Translator generally applied by a router, that
makes many different IP addresses on an internal network
appear to the Internet as a single address. For routing messages
properly within your network, each device requires a unique IP
address. But the addresses may not be valid outside your
network. NAT solves the problem. When devices within your
network request information from the Internet, the requests are
forwarded to the Internet under the router's IP address. NAT
distributes the responses to the proper IP addresses within your
network.
Network
A network consists of a collection of two or more devices, people,
or components that communicate with each other over physical
or virtual media. The most common types of network are:
LAN – (local area network): Computers are in close distance to
one another. They are usually in the same office space, room, or
building.
WAN – (wide area network): The computers are in different
geographic locations and are connected by telephone lines or
radio waves.
NWay Protocol
A network protocol that can automatically negotiate the highest
possible transmission speed between two devices.
P
PING
Packet Internet Groper, a utility used to determine whether a
specific IP address is accessible. It functions by sending a packet
to the specified address and waits for a reply. It is primarily used
A02-IPCAM4-W54
79
NetCamera NVW
to troubleshoot Internet connections.
PPPoE
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. PPPoE is a specification
for connecting the users on an Ethernet to the Internet through a
common broadband medium, such as DSL or cable modem. All
the users over the Ethernet share a common connection.
Protocol
Communication on the network is governed by sets of rules
called protocols. Protocols provide the guidelines devices use to
communicate with each other, and thus they have different
functions. Some protocols are responsible for formatting and
presenting and presenting data that will be transferred from file
server memory to the file server’s net work adapter Others are
responsible for filtering information between networks and
forwarding data to its destination. Still other protocols dictate how
data is transferred across the medium, and how servers respond
to workstation requests and vice versa. Common network
protocols responsible for the presentation and formatting of data
for a network operating system are the Internetwork Packet
Exchange (IPX) protocol or the Internet Protocol (IP). Protocols
that dictate the format of data for transferors the medium include
token-passing and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision
Detection (CSMA/CD),implemented as token-ring, ARCNET,
FDDI, or Ethernet. The Router Information Protocol (RIP),a part
of the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
suite, forwards packets from one network to another using the
same network protocol.
R
RARP
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol, a TCP/IP protocol that
allows a physical address, such as an Ethernet address, to be
translated into an IP address.
RJ-45
RJ-45 connector is used for Ethernet cable connections.
Router
A router is the network software or hardware entity charged with
A02-IPCAM4-W54
80
NetCamera NVW
routing packets between networks.
S
Server
It is a simple computer that provides resources, such as files or
other information.
SMTP
The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is used for Internet mail.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol. SNMP was designed to
provide a common foundation for managing network devices.
In LANs, a station consists of a device that can communicate data
on the network. In FDDI, a station includes both physical nodes
and addressable logical devices. Workstations, single-attach
stations, dual-attach stations, and concentrators are FDDI
stations.
Station
Subnet mask
In TCP/IP, the bits used to create the subnet are called the subnet
mask.
T
(TCP/IP)
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol is a widely used
transport protocol that connects diverse computers of various
transmission methods. It was developed y the Department of
Defense to connect different computer types and led to the
development of the Internet.
Transceiver
A transceiver joins two network segments together. Transceivers
can also be used to join a segment that uses one medium to a
segment that uses a different medium. On a 10BASE-5 network,
the transceiver connects the network adapter or other network
device to the medium. Transceivers also can be used on 10BASE2 or 10BASE-T networks to attach devices with AUI ports.

DOS.
Workgroup
A workgroup is a group of users who are physically located
together and connected to the same LAN, or a group of users who
are scattered throughout an organization but are logically
connected by work and are connected to the same network group.
Workstations
Workstation refers to the intelligent computer on the user’s
desktop. This computer may be an Intel-based PC, a Macintosh,
or a UNIX-based workstation. The workstation is any intelligent
device a user works from.
