My IP cam used to work with my Time Capsule. However, since i update firmware, i find my IP cam no longer work with my time capsule.

I even can not find IP cam set up from Airport tools.

    The firmware update may have messed up the port forwarding. Is the issue local access or network access?


    I would reset the camera and redo the setup.. same on the TC.. just reset and redo the setup.

    Thanks your reply. In fact, the Set up layout in TC is even very different to the one before firmware update.

    I find no, port forwarding, DDNS and no IP cam from the selection menu in Airport set up at all.

    It looks very different no.

    I used to set up my IP cam in TC very friendly. However, the new TC firmware update is in fact downgrading TC functions.

    No, that is not the case.. the firmware has the same functions..


    I think you are confusing the airport utility and the firmware.. the new version of the utility is a toy.. for sure.. true. For Lion just the first download listed is enough.


    If you run mountain Lion you can trick it to accept 5.6 airport utility..


    How to load 5.6 into ML.


    1. Download 5.6 for Lion.


    Click to open the dmg but do not attempt to install the pkg.. it won't work anyway.



    2. Download and install unpkg.




    Run unpkg on the desktop.. it is very simple.. drag the AirPortUtility56.pkg file over to unpkg.. and it will create a new directory of the same name on the desktop.. drill down.. applications utilities .. there lo and behold is Airport utility 5.6 .. drag it to your main utilities directory or just run it from current location.



    You cannot uninstall 6.1 so don't try.. and you cannot or should not run them both at the same time.. so just ignore the toyland version.. the plastic hammer.. and start using 5.6.. a real tool.

    Dear Lapastenague,


    Your solution is exactly what i want. You are right that New Version of Airport Utility in Mountain Lion is a toy.

    You indeed help me to resolve my big problem. My IP cam is working well.

    You are the man!


    Again, Thank you so much.
