This guide will show AT&T U-verse customers how to set up access to your WiFi Baby camera from OUTSIDE of your home WiFi network. Before starting the steps in this guide please follow our 10 Step Quick Start Guide for the basic setup of your WiFi Baby.


AT&T U-verse 2Wire routers are not UPnP “Universal Plug and Play” capable devices. There are some additional steps needed to allow access to your camera from outside you home WiFi Network. The AT&T U-verse routers are in addition a firewall, so they will block all attempts to access your camera from outside your home network. In this guide we will demonstrate how to place a rule in your router that will allow your access to the camera through that firewall.

  1. When you setup your WiFi Baby camera using the 10 Step guide your camera was assigned a dynamic (or changing) IP address. The address of your camera needs to stay the same for this process so we are going to change this dynamic IP address to a static (or fixed) IP address. There are 4 values on the TCP/IP setup page below that we need to enter.

  • IP Address: This will is the address you will assign to the camera.

    • On the AT&T U-verse router in its default configuration (which 99% are) a certain range of IP addresses can be used. The range is as follows: 192.168.1.20 – 192.168.1.40 (the 192.168.1 portion will always remain the same simply use the last number of your choice. Ex.. 192.168.1.21)

  • Subnet mask: This will always be: 255.255.255.0

  • Default Gateway: This is the IP address of your AT&T U-verse router.

    • If the router is in its default AT&T setup the address will be 192.168.1.254

  • Primary DNS: This will also be the address of your AT&T U-verse router (192.168.1.254)


As an example if your AT&T router has not been customized you can enter in the values shown below EXACTLY as you see them. If you are setting up a second or third camera you can simply use the next IP address in succession (192.168.1.21, 92.168.1.22, 192.168.1.23 etc…)



  • Now that we know the IP address of the camera will never change we can configure the ATT U-verse router. There is a password that we will need to complete the setup. On the AT&T U-verse router there is a sticker (usually silver in color) that has the “System Password” or “Device ID” make a note of that password.



  1. Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.1.254 this will bring you to the routers Home Page. Once there click on the “Firewall” icon.




  1. Next Click on “Applications, Pinholes and DMZ”



  1. Scroll down to near the bottom of the page and under the “Edit firewall settings for this computer” you will see a link labelled “Add a new user-defined application” click on it.




  1. This screen is where we create the ports we will forward. On the AT&T U-verse router it is called an application.

  • Application Profile Name: This is just a friendly name so you can identify your application

  • Port (or Range): These are the external (or outside) ports we want to forward.

  • Map to Host Port: This is the port the camera runs on. This will be 80 here.

  • The other fields need not be defined….

  • Click the “Add to List” button.

If you are following this example you can use the values defined in the screen shot below EXACTLY as they are displayed.



  1. Next you will be asked for the password for your AT&T U-verse router, this is the one we gathered in step 2.

  1. If the password was correct you will be brought to a page that will say Configuration Successful. At the bottom of this page hit the “Back” button.




  1. Under the “Select a Computer” section there is a list of computers that your router has listed for you. In the box below the list type in the IP address of your camera. If you are following this guide you can type the Exact IP address listed in the screenshot below. Once done click the “Choose” button to select the address you entered.


**NOTE** It is important not to use the “Choose wifibaby” entry you see as this may have the old IP address associated with it.





  1. After the Choose button is selected the final step is to assign the “Application” we created in steps 6-8 to the camera. In the “Application List” box scroll down to the application we created “wifibaby_8091” highlight it and click the “Add” button. You will see a new entry in the “Hosted Applications” box.



  1. The setup of your AT&T U-verse router is now complete. To test to verify things are working as expected we need to find your cameras mywifibaby url.

  • Go back to your web browser and log into your cameras Settings page.

  • At the upper right click “System”

  • Scroll down to the “Remote Viewing DDNS” section.

  • Note the the name in the “Host name” field.





*** The screen shot above and the notes below are ONLY EXAMPLES as each device has a unique mywifibaby url, please use the URL assigned to your camera***


Your INTERNAL or HOME IP address on browser:


http://192.168.1.21:80


Your INTERNAL or HOME IP address iPhone, iPad, Android apps:


IP = 192.168.1.21 | Port =80


Your EXTERNAL or AWAY address: on browser:


http://<your-mywifibabyurl>:8091


Our Example: http://wbdemo03.mywifibaby.com:8091


Your EXTERNAL or AWAY IP address iPhone, iPad, Android apps:


IP = <your-mywifibabyurl>.mywifibaby.com| Port = 8091


Our Example: IP = wbdemo03.mywifibaby.com | Port = 8091


Bookmark both of these and you are all set using viewing the camera home or away or with any browser on Mac or PC!
