There should be an INFO screen, usually under "settings" or some such menu item. Here's another little trick, though; from any computer located on the same network in the house, open up a prompt (windows: start->run->cmd->OK - Mac: Finder->Applications->Utilities->Terminal). Find out the computer's IP address, most likely it will be 192.168.0.something. Enter in the following command:

ping 192.168.0.255

In other words, replace the last number of the computer's IP address with 255, and hit enter. That ping command will return every active IP address on the network. Then just use the process of elimination to find out which is the DVR.

Zosi 500 gb harddrive connected via ethernet displayed on HDTV via HDMI. the dvr has an app that you can check your DVR via moblie monitoring. for three weeks it worked fine but now i cannot view the


Sounds like maybe your IP address changed from what it was for the first three weeks. Unless you pay your ISP extra for a static IP address, they are subject to periodic changes. I don't know how your mobile monitoring app finds your IP address but you should investigate what your IP address is currently and whether this needs to be updated somewhere.

How to find dvr ip address


Hi,
what do you want the DVRs local IP address on your LAN or your internets public IP address?

to see the local IP that the DVR is on, check the menu's in the DVR as if configured properly you should have it set up as a static IP on your LAN...

if you can not find it there, you should be able to log into your router and view connected devices... some routers are better than others, but you will probably only be able to see devices that are connected and assigned an IP address from your routers DHCP table..

if you want your public internet IP address then go to http://cmyip.com but in order to view your DVR from a different location on the internet you will need to set up port forwarding on your router - the DVR manual should show what ports need to be forwarded...

you may also want to consider using a dynamic DNS service if you do not have a static IP from your internet provider... most DVRs that I have encountered provide a dynamic DNS service..

Thanks,

How do i network a dvr to lan network


Connect the cables from the router or switch to the network card. I suggest giving the DVR a static ip address. Once you have that done you should be able to log into that machine from any other comuter on your network by opening internet explorer and typing the IP address of the DVR

My problem is I cannot access my router to enter my dvr information to view my cameras on line


Hello,

Get to a command prompt and type 'ipconfig' - no quotes.

You will see some ip addresses listed. The gateway ip address is the ip address of your router. Put that ip address into the address bar of your web browser and it will take you to the router config page. This is where you can do port forwarding if you want to be able to view the cameras from outside your network. Post a comment if you need any more help.

Or did you just forget your router password........or is the router not responding......let me know :)

Not able to use remote viewing via no-ip


I had the same exact issue. I was using dyndns to connect, but i found out that when you login in the host, dont put your local ip address of the dvr, but instead put the internet ip address of your network. so instead of 192.168.0.5 for your local put the 89.137.24.124 for the internet address. That fixed my issue. Hope that works for you. Just make sure your username and password is right and the port is set up correct in your router to forward to the local ip of the dvr.

I'm not sure if you are still looking for the answer, but I think the problem may be that you need to enter the PUBLIC IP address of the modem at the remote end instead of the PRIVATE (ie. 192.168.1.x) IP that was actually assigned to the DVR. It works best if you assign a static IP to the DVR on the remote end and enter that IP into the router's DMZ. You might also want to get a free account at dyndns.net and setup a FQDN for your business router/modem. That way you can connect to it using something like "mybusiness.homeip.net" instead of an IP address, and if the IP changes it will still find it. You will also have to configure your modem at the business to automatically update the dyndns server when the IP changes.

You need to know the ip address of your dvr. It might have a factory set ip address or a dynamic ip address from the router. You can then use this ip address to access your dvr.

If your dvr has a static ip, that static ip should be in the same range as the router's ip address so that the router can communicate with the dvr.

Actiontec GT701-WG doesn't recognize a DVR on the LAN


I think the screen you may be looking at is the Application layer forwarding screen, the drop down box being populated by DHCP clients, that's why it isn't seeing the DVR. The DMZ Hosting screen doesn't have a drop down box, it only requires an IP address to be entered.

Hope this helps!
