I have 4 ip cameras streaming to a local network, using a wireless router. I need to access these cameras from Ubuntu. This works fine when I am connected to the local network, but on the same PC I need to use a mobile internet connection to connect to the internet.

How can I connect simultaneously to mobile internet connection to use the internet and to my local wireless for viewing my IP webcams?

  • What problems did you face? – guntbert Sep 9 '15 at 16:59

usually one physical wifi-adapter can only connect to one network at the same time... USUALLY, maybe you've a special one?! if not you'll need a second (physical) wifi-adapter (connected by usb or whatever)... then you can connect to a second one.

  • "mobile Internet" = different device, I'd say. – guntbert Sep 5 '15 at 17:59
  • hmmm I've misunderstood the question... but now I don't see the problem connecting to both. Please explain you problem in detail (software you use, screenshot, error messages..) – Wolfgang Sep 9 '15 at 14:03
