it is because WebCam is wireless one by default;  Click on Webcam, click on Advanced button in right-lower corner. This should add I/O Config tab to menu on top between Specs and Physical tabs. Go to I/O and add Network Ethernet adapter.

Also, you can Find and Use motion_detector.pkt sample file in your install folder; Also check PT samples files in \Cisco Packet Tracer 8.1.0\saves\04 IoT\Solution Examples

Hi. i am trying cisco now and also have this error. I cannot see the add Network Ethernet Adapter. I added a screenshot. Hope for you assistance. Thanks

is this regular PT lab? yours ?  if this is PT activity lab (lab made by instructor), some things and tabs are limited/disabled so that he/she can grade your lab.  such file is password protected.

 

you can always attach PT file here but must be zip it first.
