Re: how to configure huawei hg533 router for home network
William the more information you can provide the more accurate can be our brain trust community's answer.
What I have to guess is you added the cameras to an existing network.
What you need to provide is how are the camera's getting their IP addresses ?
How are the PC getting their IP addresses.
Go into the router settings and look for DCHP server. Look at the leases issued and change the IP addresses that are assigned to the cameras to Static rather than Dynamic. if the cameras are getting IP address from DHCP. server rather than being set up manually..
If you manually set up the IP addresses on the cameras then alter the available ip range on the DHCP server to avoid the IP addresses assigned to the cameras. As an example say the DCHP range was 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 then alter it to be 192.168.1.21 to 192.168.1.254 and then hence the ip addresses 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.20 are used on static ip addresses like printers and cameras devices.
How do you log into the router
go to the internet browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and it should bring up your router The user name is most likely admin and the password will be admin by default. If no one has changed them.
I have looked at the usre manual but it does not spell out how to change the DCHP ip address ranges leases out or the way to change the ip addresses leased out to static for the cameras. I think you will find some sort of setting in thew dhcp menu option of the router.
I think is happening is called an ip address conflict. And the above suggestions should stop this from occurring when you reboot the IP address is re assigned and the DCHP server could be issuing ip address leases to your p.cs that are already staticly assigned to your cameras.

You shouldn't have to configure anything except the PC's should have IP and gateway set to auto.
Here is how it works:
A router connects two separate networks and manage the traffic between them.
In most home network applications the router connects your local group of computers and devices known as the LAN with the Internet, commonly called the WAN or Wide Area Network.
The router usually assigns unique Local IP addresses to all of the devices connected to it via a service known as DHCP. The addresses assigned by your router are private addresses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_net... and are not routable across the Internet.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other computers on the network. DHCP allows a computer to be configured automatically, eliminating the need for intervention by a network administrator. It also provides a central database for keeping track of computers that have been connected to the network. This prevents two computers from accidentally being configured with the same IP address. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Hos...
Your cable or DSL modem will get a Public WAN IP address from your ISP's DHCP service. These public IP addresses are leased in blocks by your ISP and are Internet routeble. The modem is connected to the WAN port on your router. The router will manage the traffic between the devices on the LAN and the Internet.
If your 5 port switch is connected to one of the router's LAN ports and router's DHCP is on then it will configure the clients attached to It automatically.
To access your camera from the Internet you will need to configure uPnP (or configure port forwarding manually) and register with some kind of dns service like viewnetcam (or know your home's external IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider).
1. To configure uPnP on your camera, look in the network settings for an automatic network configuration option - this will trigger the camera to talk to your router using uPnP to set up port forwarding. The default for one camera is to use port 80 for the outside port and something like 192.168.1.253 for the internal network address (internal to your home only). uPnP will try to configure the second and third cameras to external ports 50000 or 50001. My router failed to configure the 3rd camera so I had to manually add a port forwarding option from my router's admin pages. To note, you can configure all port forwarding manually from within the router admin pages. Just list the internal network address to your camera (like 192.168.2.253) and specify a different port for each camera (like 50000 to 50000). You can then access your camera by typing in 192.168.2.253:5000
2. Then, you should register with viewnetcam.com. Adding your cameras on viewnetcam will give you access to them from outside your house without you having to know the IP address to your home network. You will simply type in your viewnetcam url with ":" and the port number (like username.viewnetcam.com:50000).
Note: When trying to access your camera from outside your home (or even pinging your router from outside your home), you need to know the IP address of your home. This is assigned by your Internet Service Provided and can change every time you reboot your modem. Services like viewnetcam keep track of the IP address to your home and update it automatically when it changes (your camera will communicate with Viewnetcam servers occasionally to update the IP address). All you have to remember is one constant URL (the viewnetcam url) and you can get to your cameras!
Many people need to
connect additional computers or game consoles. To do this, most use a
home network router, which shares a single IP address across multiple
computers. No special configuration of your Shaw service or modem is

Set the router to use Cable as Internet connection type.
Configuring your Linksys router for remote desktop is a task that's

you plan to connect to your remote desktop machine from the Internet,
you need to configure the router to allow traffic to the PC. Linksys is
a common router used on home networks for wireless and LAN
configurations. Configuring your router to allow port forwarding to a
remote desktop only takes a few steps through the graphical user
your browser window and type the IP address of the router in your
address bar. This opens a window for the username and password needed
for access to configure the router.

Installing a Two Router Network
Installing a router to work as the second one on a home network requires special configuration. Do the following on the second router to ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:
1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.
2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP address setting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a two router environment. Check the second router's IP address value and reset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of the first router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).
3. Disable DHCP - To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the home network, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.
Instead of adding a second wired router to an existing network, consider adding a network switch instead. A switch accomplishes the same goal of extending the size of a network, but it does not require any IP address or DHCP configuration, greatly simplifying configuration.
Try checking if your pc is receiving a valid ip for ex. if your router start with a 192.x.x.x if your pc is really connected to your network its should also receive a ip of 192.x.x.x and if your network is unsecured and your pc is getting a 169.x.x.x ip you can try setting a static ip on your pc that's within the range of your router.
