Specs: win xp, 32 bit desktop
I am trying to get a wifi ip webcam setup in my home which uses a ip address to broadcast via wifi link to the home router.
I also have several PC's(2 laptops & desktop) either connected through lan cable & wifi link SSID link to the router.
I want to access the wifi ip camera from the internet when in office to view the webcam.
How can I access the wifi ip camera?
The ip address from what is my ip addr is :

My wifi ip adrress config wizard software is :
wifi cam:
Device ID 00606E8FADBF
Device Firmware Version
Device Embeded Web UI Version
Alias Anonymous
Alarm Status None
DDNS Status No Action
UPnP Status No Action

My netgear router config is :
Your router is set up with Internet and wireless settings.

2.4GHz Wireless Name NETGEAR-24-G
5GHz Wireless Name NETGEAR-DualBand-N
Wireless Security None
Wireless Passphrase

Do I need to setup a subnet or something else?
Help appreciated???

You set the camera ips to something static but in your routers lan subnet.
For example You set what port it is going to listen on like 7000

Then you go into your router and port foreward to that camera ip and port number. Second camera would be x.x.x.251 with port 7001

This should allow you to put in your wan ip address:7000 into IE or Firefox when remote to access the first camera.

How do you set the port? I managed to get the wifi camera ip address, it is & I can see it clearly from the other wifi laptop, it works fine but now I want to do the same (ie, look at the camera from an internet cafe?) how do I go & choose a IP addr to access from WWW????

dude444 this should be covered in the ip camera's manual.

See if it doesn't have a section on remote access

how do you do it?
I explained how to port forward in your router and how you would access each camera via the web. Now its up to you to review the remote access part of the ip camera's manual and follow their instructions.

Or consider just setting up your home pc for RDP access [which also requires port forwarding in the router] and then you will be able to access your home pc to then look at the cameras.
