I have a home network with an IP camera. When I'm on my home wi-fi network, I can access and view my IP camera on my iphone. I have a linksys router and IP camera. When I switch over to 3G, I can no longer log into any IP addresses. The iphone (safari) just times out and I get a message saying it could not connect. Does anyone know why? I'm also pretty sure I can't access my IP camera through any other wi-fi connection...only from home.

Gateway PC, Windows Vista

    Just to be totally clear as to what I'm trying to do:

    I want to view my IP camera from my iphone while on 3G. I have a linksys IP camera. Currently, I can view the camera on my iphone while I'm at home and running on my home wi-fi network. However, as soon as I switch to 3G, I'm unable to access the IP camera. What IP address do I need to enter in Safari? The IP camera's, the routers, the PC? Is there an IP address I'm totally missing? I'm new at this stuff. Thanks.

    Try use NAT Port Mapping on the router. The camera uses a certain port. You forward that port on the router, and enter IPADDRESS:PORTNUMBER as the address. It works for me on multiple devices.

    ADDED:

    Forgot to say. The IP camera needs a static IP. Set the IP for the port mapping destination to that of the static IP of the camera.

    In IPADDRESS:PORTNUMBER, IPADDRESS is your PUBLIC IP address. I suggest using a DDNS service to keep it updated.

    Question on your question.
    So with this camera can you video or is it just still images. Video would be cool.
