forum for Foscam might be the start area HERE issue’s with connecting wireless HERE

this is a good read FOSCAM PRO GUIDE HERE

CONNECTING your BT home hub 4 to your FOSCAM (Sept 2013) – get the IP Camera tool software either from DISC / or Download

run it and get your IP address and enter the password info after you scan for devices – the rest simply follow the instructions

I didn’t need to do any of the stuff in the vids but worth putting up for reference

http://bthomehub.home to enter your HUB – if you enter advanced settings you need the admin 8 digit key to get any further (use the card supplied with the hub)
