Default IP Camera (Foscam f18910w) Problem

I have a Foscam f18910w IP Wireless camera and I was setting it up using the iOS Owlr app. I plug the camera into the router using the ethernet cable the app picks it up and it works great. The problem is, when I unplug it (it does have a wireless antenna) it disconnects and looses connection.
My question is, how do I do I keep the camera functioning using the wireless antenna so I do not have to be connected via the ethernet?

Thanks a lot!

Have you tried getting on a computer to configure as that may have the options that you are looking for. Here is the qucick installation guide http://downloads.foscam.uk.com/Quick...8909W_V1.7.pdf.

Thanks! Ah, I was afraid of that I have a Macbook Pro that does not have an ethernet plug! Looks like I will need to buy a lightening to ethernet adapter.

If it is connected to the router via ethernet then you should be able to find its IP and connect with Macbook your wirelessly.
