FOSCAM FI8916W is an integrated wireless IP Camera with a color CMOS sensor. It combines
a high quality digital video camera, with a powerful web server, to bring clear video to your
desktop from anywhere on your local network or over the Internet.
The basic function of IPCAM is transmitting remote video on the IP network. The high quality
video image can be transmitted with 30fps speed on the LAN/WAN by using MJPEG hardware
compression technology.
With flexible 300-degree pan and 120-degree tilt, FI8916W gives users more comprehensive
control over a monitored site. FI8916W supports IR-CUT, when light conditions turns poor, the IR
cut filter will be automatically removed to accept IR illumination. Meanwhile, the camera switches
itself automatically from color to black and white, assuring optimal image quality at all times.
The IPCAM is based on the TCP/IP standard. There is a WEB server inside which could support
Internet Explore. Therefore the management and maintenance of your device is simplified by
using the network to achieve the remote configuration, start-up and to upgrade the firmware.
Controlling the IPCAM and managing images is simplified by using the provided web interface
across the network utilising either wired or wireless connectivity.
FOSCAM provides Phone APPs for Android and iPhone users, please search “Foscam ip cam
viewer” and install it through APP Store, then you can view your camera directly as a computer.

If you have set Third Party DDNS and meanwhile you enabled the Foscam Domain Name, the
Third Party DDNS will take effect.
② Do port forwarding within the router
Example: The camera’s LAN IP address is http://192.168.1.35:88 ,
Firstly, login the router, goes to the menu of Port Forwarding or Port Trigger (or named Virtue
Server on some brands of router). Take Linksys brand router as an example, Login the
router, and goes to Applications & Gaming->Single Port Forwarding.

③ Use domain name to access the camera via internet
After the port forwarding is finished, you can use the domain name+ http no. to access the
camera via internet. Take hostname ycxgwp.no-ip.info and http no. 88for example, the
accessing link of the camera via internet would be http:// ycxgwp.no-ip.info:88

4.1.2 Subnet doesn’t match, dbclick to change
If the IP Camera Tool shows the error “Subnet doesn’t match, dbclick to change!”, select Obtain
IP from DHCP server.
If this error still exists after obtaining an IP from the DHCP server, check the local area
connection of your computer and verify the subnet and gateway of the camera which should be
the same subnet of your computer.
4.1.3 No Pictures Problems
Video streaming is managed by the ActiveX controller. If the ActiveX controller isn’t installed
correctly you will see no video image. There are two ways to resolve this problem:
1) Reinstall “IP Camera Tool” and ActiveX controller(recommended).
2) Download ActiveX controller and set the security setting of IE: IE browser  Tool  Internet
ProperSecurityCustom LevelActiveX control and Plug-ins. The first three options of front
should be set to be “Enable”, The ActiveX programs read by the computer will be stored. As
follows:

4.1.4 Can’t access IP camera on internet
Possible reasons why camera is not accessible on the internet:
1) ActiveX controller is not installed correctly
2) The port which the camera uses is blocked by a Firewall or Anti-virus software. Try
changing to another port number. (Figure 5.2)
3) Port forwarding is not successful (Figure 3.30)
Double check these settings and make sure they are correct.
4.1.5 IP Camera Tool could not find camera’s IP
Verify that the network cable is securely fastened to the camera.
Make sure that DHCP is enabled on your router, do not enable MAC address filter.
Make sure that the firewall or anti-virus software does not block the camera. You can add the
camera as a trusted site on your firewall or anti-virus software.
4.1.6 UPnP always failed
UPnP only contains port forwarding in our recent software. Sometimes, it may be fail to do port
forwarding automatically because of the firewall or anti-virus software. It may also be due to the
router’s security settings. We recommend manually configuring port forwarding the camera can
be viewed on the internet.
4.1.7 Couldn’t find the shortcut on the desktop after install IP camera
tool
If you use Windows7 or Vista and the shortcut is missing after installing the IP camera tool,
check the path of IP Camera program.
For example, if it was pointing to C:\Windows\System32\IPCamera.exe.
Please fix this by pointing the shortcut to the correct path
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\IPCamera.exe. After this you should be able to use the shortcut
without any problems.

4.1.9 I can’t find multi-device settings and record icon
Record and multi-device functionality are controlled by the ActiveX controller.
These functions are not available in Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.
4.1.10 Camera cannot connect using wireless
If your camera cannot connect wirelessly after you set the wireless settings, unplug / plug the
power cable. (for more details: Wireless LAN settings in chapter 3.7)
Usually, camera can’t connect wireless mainly because of incorrect settings.
Verify that the SSID is correct; use the same encryption for router and camera. Share key should
not contain special characters, only word and number will be better. Disable MAC address
filtering.
4.1.11 Can’t see other cameras listed in multi-device when using remote
access
If you want to view all the cameras via the WAN, verify that each camera added in the
multi-device settings can be accessed by using the DDNS name and port number. Use the
DDNS domain name not the camera’s LAN IP. (For more details see: How to add cameras in
WAN)
4.1.12 Only see black screen or undefined characters when using
remote login
If you could access the login page remotely, this indicates that your DDNS settings are correct. If
you are unable to see live video but only some undefined characters, this may be due to the
internet speed issues or the camera using Wi-Fi.
