Q-See System Not Listed in available computers

I'm trying to setup a 2701-HG-D router to port forward to a Q-see camera
system. When I go into the firewall section, the Q-see system isn't in the
list of computers. I've defined the IP/Gateway to match the router ( and, and can route to the camera on the local
network (using the IP), but I can't get the 2wire router to see the camera
system. Any thoughts would be appreaciated.

    I have a similar issue with my Panasonic KX-HCM110 Network Camera. It worked fine until we were 'forced' to reset the 2Wire router (AT&T support!).
    Now, we can't get the port forwarding set properly. We can see the camera by addressing the local address, but not via the internet. I've been to, with no success... we set up individual application TCP and UCP for Port 80. Help?

Choose the model of your Q-See DVR and then select the model of your router.

This instruction will work, I had same problem. 2WIRE rep sent this instruction to me. But, I still can't view my Qsee DVR remotely, I still have problem accesing the DVR. If you know how to view remotely please let me know.

- Open your Internet Browser of choice (i.e. Internet Explorer, FireFox)
- Surf to the website http://homeportal/management
- Under troubleshooting, click on Network Tests.
- Ping the IP address that has been assigned to the DVR.
- Check the Device List. It should show up now.

Go to the following link. This is just an example on how to forward ports for limewire. Use the same steps to forward port 80.

If it still doesnt work, try updading the firmware. In case this fails, then we have some issue with the router

Is the DWL-520 Wireless Adapter compatible with the 2701 HG modem

The 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi networking standards are generally compatible. An 802.11b router / access point will work with 802.11g network adapters and vice versa.
There is no such conflict reported with the above devices. But as suggestion use an 802.11g wireless card with the Bell as it would give you better performance

Thanks for using Fixya

Port forwarding won't allow individual apps

The 2wire HG is an old 2Wire, they've come out with several models since that one. It sounds like the firmware isnt working correctly. You can try resetting it to factory default. If you do that, hold the reset button down for at least 30 seconds. 2wires take a good 2-3 minutes to re-syncronize.

When you have solid green lights, open Internet Explorer and it will say page cant be displayed. Clean out the address bar up top where you normally type www stuff (and make sure its the address bar, not the seach bar so many people use). Type to get into the router. Run the system setup wizzard on the right. When it asks you to put in a password, it means make one up. Then you need to click on run system set up wizzard again. The key code should already be in there and end in F2NV. Click next, set your time zone, click next, put in your userID and password, click next, after the reds dots, you should be online. Now go back in and try to open your ports. If they dont stay open this time, then you need to think about swapping the router out. The newest model is the 2701.

Trying to open ports

You will need to setup Ports 5631 and 5632 to forward to the IP of the computer with PC anywhere installed on it. You need to go into the Virtual Server section to setup the port forwarding.
