    You can use the lead to set up the camera. Depends on the wifi strength you have from your router.

  • I would presume you can connect this camera to an Ethernet wired network as well as a wireless network if you prefer. And this would also be used to initially setup the camera on to you wireless network if didn't have a WPS compatible access point or router.
