I installed some WiFi security cameras in my place, and only the IE browser can access the web config pages of the cameras. I hardly use Windows OS, while use Linux OS a lot. I do have a PC installed with Windows 10 and I have used it to access the web config pages of these cameras through IE browser. However recently I can't access the web config pages of any of these cameras through the IE browser on this Windows 10 PC, it may be due to I updated the Windows 10 a while ago, and the IE browser is version 11 at the moment. To access the web config page of the cameras, enter something like 192.168.123.123:123 in the browser, but it returns as shown in the attached screen shot. I try to adjust the IE browser setup, but it doesn't work, and the problem is still the same. I turn off the firewall also, but the problem is still the same.

 

Does anyone have a solution for the problem?

Put a '/' at the end of the URL.

 

 

Actually it might be a 'http://' at the start.

It might help to know what your cameras are. Do you get this problem for all of them or just the one?
Can you ping the camera?

1) with http:// the problem is still the same

 

2) yes for all the WiFi cameras, yes can ping the IP. moreover the captured images can't be sent to the FTP server, all these mean the WiFi cameras work well, just can't access to their web config pages now through the IE browser of the updated Windows 10

Try using the Chrome or Firefox browsers.

If you're using Linux then do yourself a favour and set up Motion or Zoneminder. Plenty of guides out there on the internet.

That page looks like you have just search for "192.168.150.123:123"

 

Type in specifically "http://192.168.150.123:123"

 

Would also be helpful to know camera make as each manufacturer tends to stick to a "standard".

 

I use an extension in Chrome called IE Tab that emulates an old Internet Explorer window - very helpful for devices with rubbish old web interfaces in them like many of the Hikvision IP cameras for example.

the WiFi security cameras don't support Chrome or Firefox browsers, even less likely support other unpopular browsers under open source OS environment. this is an easy understanding commercial concept for developing commercial products.

As per Chevrolux... the SS does look like bing search results ....

 

if your browser was directed at the device and failed you should get something like this (note the highlighted section is where you should be typing the ip address and port to access the camera)

What?! That makes no sense.

Just tell us what brand the cameras are and we can help more. They type of browser really shouldn't matter much at all, apart from what rubbish old plugins need to be supported.
There is also the chance the camera runs its interface on https with an old TLS version that modern browsers don't support - it can look like a page load error but when you look in to the error it is the cipher that is the problem.

you're correct, the modern browsers are less supported to the wifi cameras, while the old ones do, e.g. the IE browser. i think i can figure this out at IE browser, as this is the oldest and used to be popular browser i have in one of my PC. thanks for the opinion.

IME any browser should work to get you as far as the login in page, however it won't work past there.
As an alternative to IE have you tried the pale moon browser?

If you are not getting a log in page on any browser I would suggest that the browsers are not the problem. Again, if you let us know the make and model of the camera we could help you more.

Does it need IE because of ActiveX plugin?

 

can you ping the camera?

 

can you try IE on another PC to see if it works?

 

can you try resetting IE - Internet Options, Advanced, Reset
