QUICK TIP:  To avoid interference, don't place your device close to your router.  You can also change the channel of your Wi-Fi on your router to reduce intermittent connection.  To learn how to do this on your Belkin router, click here.
 
Step 3:  On the back of the NetCam, flip the switch up to Setup mode.

Step 4:  On your Android device, go to Settings > Wi-Fi and connect to the NetCam's Wi-Fi in the form of NetCamHDXXXX or NetCamXXXX (the characters at the end vary per device).

QUICK TIP:  Some Android versions have an option enabled called Smart Network Switch or sometimes called Mobile Network Switch and Auto-switch to mobile network.  This option allows your Android device to switch between saved Wi-Fi and data connections on its own.  With this option enabled, your smart device may switch back to your saved Wi-Fi or data connections while you are performing the setup on your Wemo, causing the setup to fail.  Before setting up your Wemo, it is recommended that you disable this feature.  For more information, click here.

You've now successfully set up your NetCam.  Log in with the account you just created.

QUICK TIP:  Your Android device will automatically switch from the NetCam's
Wi-Fi to your Wi-Fi after the last step.  If it did not, you may manually connect to your Wi-Fi on your device's Settings, then open the NetCam app again.
