WIFI Only
« on: April 21, 2013, 08:24:00 AM »

I have only WIFI connection to the internet, being that I live in an apartment with no hard wired network connection to a router.  That said... How do I wire and connect my XX40A  and XX42A Cameras to the internet?

I have what I would call a "reverse WiFi router" (I am not sure what their name is... ask a nerd).   I needed it for my TiVo to connect to my WiFi network.

Anyway, it connects to a wireless WiFi network, and offers hardware Ethernet ports for devices.     I connected my camera up to that, initially for setup.   At the end of the setup, I entered all the info needed for the camera to start using WiFi, and (permanently) disconnected the wire.

Let me add, that if you have a friend with a Ethernet port, you could bring the camera over there, set it up including all the info for your WiFi network, and then bring it back home.
