Yo so I'm actually stuck here too.. I booted the camera up, connected it to my router using the WPS button. navigated to the ip address, got the 404 error. entered [ip]/adm/enable_ui.cgi - then the credential prompt came up and I entered "administrator" with no password, and then received a blank html page with "OK" in the top left.

Hi everyone - didn't mean to leave you high and dry. Glad you got it working for the most part. for the people having issues after they get to the home screen usually you can go back to just typing in http://[ipaddressofcamera]/ but if that does not work add "main.cgi?next_file=index_in.htm" to the end of the url and see if that works.

So I get the "OK" message and then I type [ip]/main.cgi?next_file=index_in.htm and still get nothing. I have also tried [ip]/adm/file.cgi?todo=inject_telnetd as well and when I do that I get a 403 forbidden error. I am at a standstill now. I am not sure what else to try. Thanks everyone for your help! I appreciate it.

This is when you should be able to go back and just type in your ip address and you should be able to see an admin screen for your camera. After I get the ok message, if I go to the ip address, I get a 404 not found error.

I'm at exactly the same spot. (404-not found)
I have also tried different browsers, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, all get the same response.
