Trying to access my Foscam IP cameras over the internet.

I am trying to be able to access my IP cameras over the internet and am having trouble. I have been trying to follow the manufacturers directions but the Modem I have, is different than what they discuss. I have a Netgear Model 7550. When I choose to port forward, there is no place to put the IP address. Can someone help? I can see the cameras when I'm on my network, but once I get off that network, i cannot access them any longer.

I find such to be difficult to setup.

But did you try putting the IP of this camera into the DMZ of your router?

Sorry, no. I don't see any router manual so you'll have to look that up.

I have not tried that yet.

I have not tried putting the IP of the camera into the DMZ of the router. I will try that and reply back. Thanks!
