Setting Up a Wi-Fi Camera - The Basics

Port Forwarding with AT&T


If you need to setup Port Forwarding to view your camera from home, or other smart devices, our Port Forwarding How-To page will guide you through the steps for the modem you have.


All you need to do is

  1. Choose your modem
  2. Follow the prompts

Wi-Fi Camera Set-Up

AT&T cannot help setup your Wi-Fi Cameras but do not fear, most cameras are easy to install and do not require Port Forwarding. I recently set up my Wi-Fi Camera by connecting it to Wi-Fi and setting up the App it came with.


Heads Up: If the app is not working, uninstall and reinstall the app. Test on a different device. 


Port Forwarding Troubleshooting

If your camera is not working or you are not able to access certain sites, restart your router by pressing the red button for 5 seconds and try accessing your camera/ site again.


If you still are unable to view or set up your cameras, reboot the modem by pressing and holding the red reset button for 30 seconds and setup/ port forwarding again. Resetting will wipe all personalized settings. 


If you are still having trouble

  • Check the companies site or forums for set up information
  • Check out the instructions that come with your device
  • Consider using an In-Home Expert

If you are new to the world of Port Forwarding or networking in general and having trouble, we recommend contacting an In-Home Expert.  Keep in mind, most cameras are easy to set up so following their instructions is recommended.
