my foscam camera is running for weeks without problem. I did use a static address (defined on the camera first) in the internal network.
I don't know why, but it was the only way to avoid the problems described.
The same (static address) i did for the other cameras (linksys and swann).
That is very interesting. Would you mind if we went into the static IP settings in a bit more detail? Everything I have tried results in the error message "error: illegal params."
So in the Foscam admin page, I go into "Device Management"->"Basic Network Settings". Then uncheck "Obtain IP from DHCP Server" and enter the following parameters...
IP Addr - 192.168.80.xxx (the IP address that LMCE assigned to the camera)
Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0 (INTERNAL_NETMASK from web admin, Advanced->Network->Network settings)
Gateway - xx.xx.xxx.x (GATEWAY from web admin)
DNS Server - xxx.xxx.x.xxx (DNS1 from web admin)
Http Port - 80
