  1. Hi everyone, I have a d-link dcs 3220g network camera with wireless capabilities. I am currently on a dsl network that goes through dhcp. the internal ip of the camera is 10.0.0.16. I can access the camera when i'm on my network, but outside of the network I can't. I have a zoom adsl x6 for a modem/router. I tried making a virtual server with the ip of the camera but that still didn't work. I need to be able to access this camera from outside my network. any help please!

    ouch -- I'm sure the camera is configurable, but if you're moving from
    a fixed location A to one of several others (B,C,...Z) then reconfiguring it is a
    real pain.

    The BIG issue is not getting data flow from the (A) camera ---> systems, but the
    access from (B) systems ---> camera will required routing changes in the entire path.

    If (A) is your primary issue then get another router and make it's LAN side address 10.0.0.254.
    Connect the camera to it on another LAN port (or wireless)
    The new router WIRES into a network on others systems (B,C,...Z) using its WAN
    connection.
