* If you are not connecting wirelessly it is most likely an incorrect WiFi network
password or typo. Please confirm you are using the same password you use to
authenticate your laptop and mobile devices on your network.
* If you have confirmed that you are using the correct password, you may
have selected the wrong password encryption type. In this case even if you are
entering the correct password it still won’t work but this is quickly fixed using the
info below.
Routers use password encryption types - WEP, WPA and WPA2. If you have
a newer router it is most likely WPA or WPA2 and the WIZARD automatically
determines the security mode so you can dismiss this troubleshooting step
However, if you have WEP a prompt will appear during the WIZARD setup follow
this guide to select the right type of WEP from the dropdown menu options.
Password is 5 Characters = WEP 64-bit, ASCII
Password is 10 characters = WEP 64-bit, HEX
Password is 13 characters = WEP 128-bit ASCII
Password is 26 characters = WEP 128-bit HEX
* If you still can’t connect wirelessly, your router may be assigning your camera a
different IP every time it is unplugged from power. (Quick explanation: If the IP
changed, your apps and browser is being directed towards an IP that is no longer exists.)
You will need to assign your camera a static, non-changing IP. This is done in just a
few steps by following the guide at WIFIBABY.NET > SUPPORT > STATIC IP SETUP.

Is your username and password is entered correctly in your apps or browser?
Is your URL is entered correctly? It begins with “wb” then 6 characters and
ends with either mywifibaby.com or dtdns.net.
Did you enter 8150 as the port in the apps or end the URL in your browser
with :8150?
Did you cut & paste the URL vs. typing it in? You may have grabbed a space
in the beginning or end of the URL.
Are you sure you are connecting externally when testing, not on your home
WiFi network?
Is your URL active under the SYSTEM page? Does the message No UPnP
gateway appear under the REMOTE VIEWING section as shown below?
