Viewing Foscam camera from outside my network?

I have a wireless Foscam camera which worked just fine for weeks. I was able to configure it to view it from outside my network and on my phone. This was before i got U-verse internet. Since i have switched to U-verse i am not able to view my camera from outside my network (internally it works fine using the private IP). I have setup port forwarding by reading the various posts but haven't had much luck.

 

Has anyone gotten past this issue? Do i need to revert to using my Cisco router to configure this or I should be able to set this up by just having the AT&T wireless gateway?

 

Thanks!

I’m having an issue with a Foscam camera that I just can’t figure out. I have two of them. One of them I got set up and working fine on the 3801GHV router   ~ both LAN and remote access, using port 8090. The second one works fine on the LAN, but I can’t seem to get the pinhole open for the second camera ( I’ve tried several ports). Any suggestions on how to proceed. I’ve already contacted Foscam support to no avail. They finally told me to check with uverse support.

I recentely purchased a Foscam FI8910W (wireless IP camera) and cannot set up the remote access. I'm having difficulties with the port forwarding. The directions do not show what to do for an AT&T router.

Has anyone gotten the remote access to the Foscam (FI8905W) camera to work?  What port?  Is there a step-by-step guide somewhere?

 

Thank you.

Are you using the Foscam 8910 and the AT&T 5031NV by chance?  I'm having difficulty viewing the cameras from outside my local network.  They work fine on my wifi, but just don't connect when outside my network.  Any suggestions?

I had to call AT&T to open the ports needed. Couldn't open them myself!
Hope that helps.
