Question by alpha53850: Wireless network card cable for HP desktop – HP customer service sucks?
For the past month I ave been trying to get a part for my HP desktop computer, it is a small cable inside the computer that connects the outside antenna to the wireless network card. The HP customer service keeps sending me the actual network card. How do I find the name of the part that I need. According to the HP cs, the numbers on the actual cable does not match their records. Please help.

Best answer:

Answer by Colinc
Normal network wireless cards do NOT have a cable connecting to the outside, The antenna normally connects direct to the card. You would be better off uninstalling and removing the original card. Then buy a USB extension cable to bring it to the top of the desk.

    This review is from: Foscam FI8918W Wireless/Wired Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with 8 Meter Night Vision and 3.6mm Lens (67° Viewing Angle) (Electronics)

    Where to start…

    Well I’ll open with.. I’m IMPRESSED! I opted to get the white version of the FI8918W just because it was cheaper than the black version and was identical other than the color. I was first concerned because I got two camera’s and the first one was “loose” it seemed (camera from the base). The second seems to be identical so this must just be the way these camera’s are. I hooked this up directly to my router as per the instructions and tried to determine a standard ip address without having to use the included software. I wasn’t able to so then used the mini-disc on my windows 7 PC. The computer prompted for reboot which I did before I noticed the icon on the desktop. When it rebooted I double clicked the icon and after a brief moment it displayed the ip address of the camera. Note: I’m also using zone alarm and it requested access to, which I allowed and it displayed the camera.

    When I double clicked the ip address displayed in the software window I was taken to ie which then I put in the user id: admin and for the PW. I don’t know if I’m just lucky because I’ve had so many lessons with my other IP cameras, but this one was very easy (outside trying to figure out why the wireless config wasn’t working as expected). One of the other things I was really impressed with was the ease of setting up the wireless. I “scanned” for wireless sources, found mine, clicked it and nearly all the fields were prefilled. I only had to input my security key. Now… The issue I had. I’m currently running 4 different cameras, x2 different Linksys camera’s and a trendnet. Those all when setup kept their ip address. This Foscam uses a different one. So after you have it setup I’d recommend re-running their ip software and finding the new ip address after you have removed the cat5 cable. This took me about an hour to figure out.

    My camera background:

    I started out with x2 Linksys wvc54gca. These were my basis for learning about the IP camera’s, the router work required to open the ports and more especially multiple camera’s on the same router and how to accomplish that. After moving from the lower 48 to Alaska, we wanted a pan tilt zoom (PTZ) camera and opted for the Linksys WVC210. This camera is a very nice unit, but after getting the new Foscam night PTZ camera, I feel like I wasted a significant amount of money on this one unit, when I believe the Foscam FI8918W is easily a better buy. We also have the Trendnet tv-ip422w and compared to this new Foscam camera, the video is absolutely SUBPAR to the Foscam.

    While this is a review about the Foscam FI8918W I want the readers to know and appreciate what this camera does. The Linksys WVC54GCA works perfectly in IE and Firefox (Safari as well). The WVC210 will NOT, repeat NOT work with IE. There is an active X that is required and Cisco must have an issue with Microsoft or something because I cannot force my computer to accept the active X. You can ONLY view this in Fire Fox (FF) or Safari (if I remember correctly), but FF is what we use to view it. These Foscam’s work in: IE8, FF and FF on Mac OS-X (Snow Leopard). I haven’t tried Safari, but our needs were met in that realm.
    Mobile browsing: Both of the Linksys cam’s were visible on our iPhone/iTouch. We have now ditched the iPhone (junk) and went with the Samsung captivate (android) and had the same experience. The Trendnet and Foscam units were not viewable on either of our phones. This was an initial HUGE issue, but I’ve found that on both the itunes and android app store there is an app (android has a free version, apple doesn’t) called “IP Cam Viewer” by Robert Chou (android lite version works for free and has a banner at the top). If you use this program use “Add IP” in the settings to add your DNS address you established and go from there. This app also allows “swipe to pan” option.. NICE!!

    In setting up, I mentioned that I have multiple camera’s. I’ve resorted to using multiple different port’s such as: myipcam,dot,com:1111 and the next is: myipcam,dot,com:1112, and: myipcam,dot,com:1113, etc. You will establish this in your individual camera settings and your router config.

    Over all.

    I know my setup was based on historical config’s I’ve done with other camera’s so I was aware of some of the pitfalls. But I believe these cameras were the easiest to setup. The camera’s software/firmware is a little “hokey” and could be improved I believe, but It has everything it needs to have (that I could determine) so I can’t fault the firmware (admin) settings/options about that. The actual web GUI (interface) was pretty nice, especially compared to the other camera’s I have. I didn’t try the multiple setup and accessing them through the internet because one of the two cameras we received will be kept a little more “private” and may have access to part of our…

    If you have never interfaced with your router’s software before (and you are not brave!) than this might not be for you. It is not hard to set up. You plug in its AC adapter and plug it into your router. Follow the instructions and wow.
    The picture is wonderful. The motion alarm is fantastic. We placed on of these inside our barn across the street from our home, about 350 feet away. We added an $80. antenna to our router from Hawking, also available on Amazon, and poof! I can now see what all the sqwak is at 2AM in my barn with out walking all the way out there! Wow, wow, wow. The pan and tilt features are really nice. We setup another at our front door, and three “out door” styles around the outside of the property. I don’t know how long this black “indoor” will last in the extreme temps and humitity of our barn and front porch, but that is not Foscam’s problem. I will update at the end of the winter, or sooner if they die during winter!

    4/3/11 Well they made it through the winter. We have been able to review motion detection alarm triggered video clips that were saved on our pc. We have been able to remote pan across the barn to see who is making all the racket and why. It is lovely to know who has been on your porch while you were sleeping! The cameras are wonderful. the there is an antenna you can get on amazon that will extend you wireless cababilities. We view the inside and outside of our barn across the street. These are great.

    Unbelievable performance for the price, March 1, 2011
    John Colby (Los Angeles, CA) –

    There are a ton of well-written reviews for this camera (also check out the other versions, e.g. FI8918W White, FI8905W) that give an excellent sense of its many strengths, minor weaknesses, as well as tips for setting up IP cameras in general. I won’t rehash the basics, but I will give a brief overview of my setup. Then I’ll make a comment on security, and finally go through some of the ways you can extend this camera’s capabilities. This last section is where the Foscam truly shines, in my opinion. After all, if I just wanted a no-hassle cam/DVR, I could get something more basic (but much more expensive) off the shelf at Costco or through a residential security company.

    If you have any questions, just comment on this review. I’m happy to respond.

    The setup process was very standard for any sort of web-enabled device. It’ll take a bit longer if you’ve never gone through the steps before, but once you do it, you’ll know how to set up a whole slew of similar devices (e.g. home webserver, media servers, etc.). There are literally hundreds of great tutorials on all of these topics around the web, so if any step or terminology is confusing, just google it and you’ll find a bunch of good links. (i.e. don’t get deterred by reviews that say “bad instruction manual” or “bad customer service”, since you won’t need either if you have the whole internet and the power of google at your fingertips). Anyway, here is the rough outline of the setup process for me:

    1. Connected Foscam via LAN cable, checked “DHCP clients” list on router (I have a MacBook Pro and an Airport Extreme router) to get local Foscam IP, and then typed this into my web browser to get to the Foscam web interface. Alternatively, use the little utility included with the Foscam to get to the same place.
    2. Added a new login/password, deleted admin login, and set up wifi access in the Foscam settings. Then disconnected from LAN and moved Foscam to the desired location. Plug it back in and now it’s working via wireless.
    3. Went into my router’s settings and assigned a static IP to the Foscam’s wifi MAC address (note: this MAC is different from the ethernet MAC). This is done with “DHCP Reservations” on the Airport, but of course the exact label will vary by router. Now the Foscam web interface will always be accessible at the same local address within my home network.
    4. To get external access outside of my home network, I went into my router’s “Port Forwarding” settings and forwarded some external port to port 80 at the static local IP of the Foscam.
    5. Since I have a residential internet provider, my external IP is dynamic, which means it could potentially change. To get around this, signup for a free dyndns account. Then just use the updater client on the Foscam, itself, or one of many others that are available for free for mac, windows, and linux.

    This is a bit confusing since the Foscam advertises “encryption”. The part that IS secure is the Foscam’s communication to/from your router via wifi. This is very good, and considering how easy it is to snoop traffic over an unprotected or WEP-protected wifi (there are even NYTimes articles describing the basics!), I would consider this a mandatory feature of any IP cam. While this is excellent to have, if you choose to make your Foscam web interface accessible from the outside internet (i.e. you did port forwarding), then this connection is public and completely unencrypted. Firstly, this means you should immediately add a new user in the Foscam settings and then delete the admin login. Even once this step is done, it means that there will be no little “lock” symbol in your browser indicating SSL encryption, and your new login/password and video stream will still be sent in the clear. This doesn’t bother everyone, but if it does, you can use a computer on your home network to set up a VPN or SSH tunnel (easier) to make the connection encrypted (or just disable external access completely if you don’t need this feature). At any rate, it’s good to be aware of this limitation at least.

    Enhancing functionality:
    – Misc information on advanced features – There is a lot of useful information about these Foscams, including some more advanced topics, scattered around on various blogs and forums. Here are a couple (I’m sure google will find even more): gadgetvictims dot com, forum dot networkwebcams dot com, networkcamerareviews dot com.
    – mangocam dot com – Free online storage for your cam stream. What’s the point of having a security camera if the crooks steal all your computers with the footage!? This site just…
