So since switching to millenicom 4G from my unlimited altel 3G plan I lost access to my network cameras. Doing lots of reading here led me to upgrade to Millenicom's static IP address for an extra $10 per month.

I still can't get it to work. Is their static IP address publically addressable or no?

I've got the mifi4620LE jetpack tied into the pepwave surf soho router.

The static IP Millenicom provides is in fact a publicly routable one. The problem you're having is that the static IP is not being passed through to the Pepwave. This is because the Jetpack has its own NAT layer that's preventing it from doing so. You'll need to swap the service over to a USB type modem, which will have no problem passing the static IP over to the Pepwave. For example, the Pantech UML290. Although, more than likely, you'll also need to manually apply the static APN (access point name) to the Pepwave so that it properly connects.

If Valerie is correct that Millicom does provide a publicly routable IP address (and I have no reason to think otherwise), you may be able to get what you want by configuring port forwarding on jetpack and taking the pepwave out of the picture (at least as far as the cameras go).

Now having suggested that, I have to admit I have no experience with the pepwave nor the jetpack. If you cameras are ethernet only (i.e. no WiFi), then I can see taking the pepwave out of the picture is not possible.

Right, as long as the cameras can connect via WiFi the port forwarding rules on the 4620 Jetpack should work.

The DMZ function on the Jetpack MAY be a way that you can get it to pass the static IP to the Pepwave, BUT this is not something the 3Gstore team has tried yet. Essentially, you'll just put the IP address of the Pepwave router (192.168.50.1, unless you changed it) into the DMZ and that should open up all ports for the Pepwave. This is the only thing I can think of to try if you don't want to move to avoid getting a USB modem, or embedded router for that matter.

If we can set aside some time to test this within the next few days I'll follow up here with our results. In the mean time, if you end up trying it yourself please share your findings - we'd appreciate it!

The cameras are not WiFi capable, only ethernet cable. Why must this be so difficult...

I installed a video security system last summer. I also wanted to be able to access it remotely and found that I could not use the traditional method because of the IP issue. (Didn't want to pay an more $$ for a static IP.) My work around was to connect the video system to my home network, access the video on an old computer and access that computer via jumpdesktop or splashtop. Has worked ever since with no issues.
