In the previous chapter, we learned the camera’s basic functions and
used “Smart Wizard” to set up some simple configurations. In this
chapter, you will further configure the camera to meet your personal
preference.
Please first click [Setup] on the live view page, and you will see many
configuration options below.
3.1 Basic
3.1.1 System
Indicate your camera’s name and location. You can also disable the
LED light to make the camera unnoticeable to your target.
3.1.2 Date & Time
You can set your date, time, and time zone manually or automatically
by synchronizing the camera’s date and time with your PC or NTP
server.
24
CG-WLNCM4G User Manual
The camera has a built-in backup battery, but after the camera is
unplugged for too long and the battery runs out, the date & time
settings may go back to factory default.
3.1.3 User
There are three different management levels for the camera, including:
Administrator: Only one administrator is allowed for this camera.
An administrator can modify all the settings. It is strongly recommend
that your change the default administrator’s password to prevent
unauthorized use. If you have set up your new password using Smart
Wizard, you do not have to do it again here.
General User: There may be multiple general users for this camera.
A general user can use the “Function Buttons” on the live view page
but can not access the “Setup” section.
Guest: There may be multiple guests for this camera. A guest can
only see the live view images but nothing else. An administrator can
add up to eleven general users and guests in total.

3.2 Network
3.2.1 Network
If you have set up your network in Smart Wizard, here you can change
more detailed settings. If you did not use Smart Wizard previously, it is
okay to set up the network completely here.
IP Setting:
• DHCP: Select this option when your network uses the DHCP server,
such as a NAT router. When the camera starts up, it will be assigned
an IP address from the DHCP server automatically.
• Static IP: Select this option to assign an IP address for the camera
directly. You may use NC Finder to obtain the related setting values.
• PPPoE: Select this option when you use a direct connection via an
ADSL modem. You should have a PPPoE account from your Internet
26
CG-WLNCM4G User Manual
service provider. Please also enter the user name and password here.
The camera will get an IP address from the ISP as starting up.
Please note that once the camera gets an IP address from the ISP
as starting up, it automatically sends a notification email to you.
Therefore, you have to set up the email or DDNS configuration in
advance when using PPPoE.
DDNS Setting:
With the Dynamic DNS feature, you can assign a fixed host name
and domain name to a dynamic Internet IP address. Select [Enable]
to enable this feature and select your preferred provider from the
pull-down list. Enter the required information in the Host Name, User
Name, and Password boxes. Please note that you have to sign up for
DDNS service with a service provider first in order to use this feature.
UPnP:
The camera supports UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), which is a set
of computer network protocols that enable the device-to-device
interoperability. In addition, it supports port auto-mapping function
so that you can access the camera if it is behind a NAT router or
firewall. Select [Enable] to enable this feature.
Ports Number:
• HTTP Port: The default HTTP port is 80.
NOTE: If you have a second camera in the same sub-network,
you should assign a different HTTP port to the second camera, for
27
Advanced Settings
example, HTTP port:81. When you use web browser to access the
second camera, you may type http://camera’s IP address:81 to get the
live view page.
• RTSP Port: Configure the transmission of streaming data within the
network. The default RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) port is
554.
3.2.2 IP Filter
The IP Filter setting allows the camera administrator to block
computers that use a certain range of IP addresses.
Please assign a range of IP addresses by entering the Start IP address
and End IP address. Click [Add] to save the setting. You can repeat the
action to assign multiple ranges for the camera and users whose IP
address located within those ranges will not be allowed to access the
camera.
3.2.3 Wireless
The wireless setting section is pretty much the same as that in Smart
Wizard. If you are satisfied with your current settings, you do not have
to change anything here. Otherwise, please configure your wireless
network here.
The camera supports WLAN while you use the wireless network.

3.6.4 Schedule Trigger
Since you have specified several schedule profiles previously, here you
can start setting scheduled image capturing which you can receive by
emails, FTP or network storage servers. Select [Enable] to enable the
preferred option for scheduled image capturing, choose a “schedule
profile” from the pull-down list, and then set the ”interval time”
between each image captured. You can assign different schedule
profile for each option individually.
38
CG-WLNCM4G User Manual
NOTE: If the setting value of the “Network Storage Recording Time
Per Event” option in General Setting is longer than the interval time
for Network Storage Schedule, the recorded file will be a continuous
video clip. For example, if you set the Network Storage Recording
Time Per Event as ten seconds and the interval time as five seconds,
the recorded file will be a non-stop video clip because the camera will
record a 10-second video clip every 5 seconds.

3.10 Advanced Configuration When the
Camera Is behind a NAT Router
If your camera is connected to a NAT router, you need to open a “Virtual
Server” port for the camera in the router to allow remote network
access. Here we use corega WLBARGMO wireless router as an example:
(as the image below)-.
Step 1: Select the IP address and name of the camera
Step 2: Select a service, for example, HTTP.
Step 3: Enter the port range. The recommended port range is 80~80.
If you have a second (or more) camera connected, you need to assign
a different port range (can not use 80~80 again) for it. Besides, the port
value has to be the same as the camera's HTTP port. (Please also refer
to chapter 3.2.1)
Step 4: Select a protocol. "TCP" is recommended.
Step 5: You can add product description in the “Remark” column
Step 6: Click [Submit] after you enter all the information. You will then
see the new entry in the Virtual Server list.

same camera.
(2) Please also make sure if your computer meets the minimum
system requirement when using the camera and NC Monitor.
Q7. Why can’t I receive image from the camera in my email (or on FTP
