On the LCD on the back, when you look under network, you aren't connected. It will indicate if there's no cable, or other types of errors. No point in using a browser or any kind of connection until it says something like the above.

I don't see "Http Server Running http://192.168.128.108". I have to check my connection. Thanks for pointing me to the right direction. Happy New Year.

Depending on the NIC card in your computer, you do need a switch/hub between the camera and the PC. A regular cable might not work. And you definitely either need something to hand out an IP address (like a local router), or you need to hard code an address matching the subnet on which your computer resides. Either one of these would prevent the above from appearing.
Note what it does say, and if unclear, post again. Photography I'm a beginner, but (sadly) spend all day with computers.
Yes, I did. Just briefly to see what it would do. It worked. I don't recall doing anything special. Then lost interest when I saw how boring the result was. Not that it didn't work, it just wasn't interesting.
Just for grins I did it again, here are the notes:
Previously I had created a HTTP Profile called LAN1. It's under Network Settings, HTTP. I don't recall if a default was shown. Mine is set for password off, and under TCP obtain automatically.
Choose hardware: Wired lan Network Connection: Enable Network Settings: HTTP
(by now, assuming it is plugged in, it should say "Http Server Running and give an IP address on the screen, mine said http://192.168.128.108, yours will be different)
I had it running wirelessly, but it was wired, as far as the camera was concerned. Plugged it into a ZyXel MWR 211 (battery-powered) wireless router, and connected to that with my iPad.
My plan (I still haven't carried it out, many months later, partially because it requires two people) is to use it to take aimed pictures with a (20' tall) monopod (pole pixie pro is your friend). Other than that, it hasn't seemed all that useful to me, either.
I don't remember having any trouble setting it up, but I deal with network issues all the time, so it's entirely possible there were ambiguities in the instructions where I knew what they meant. Sorry, I know that's not especially helpful.
