Question about Sony SNC-RZ30N Network Camera
It sounds like you are trying to use a web browser to access the device. By default web browsers attempt to connect to port 80 (HTTP) or port 443 (HTTPS). If these ports are not opened you cannot browse to the device. However, you can override these ports by specifying them after the IP address using a colon. For example: http://192.168.0.96:8888
Make sure that the IP address is not in the DHCP scope so you don't get a duplicate address.
Sometimes this can be a result of the web browser settings. Clear your browser's temporary files. You can also try another browser. I have found that Firefox works better than IE for configuring network devices that are not based on the Windows OS.
If you still have problems get rid of the router and unique ports. Just try to make it work on you LAN with no security. Then add security and you should find out where the problem lies.
One last item which may be obvious, you can only connect using that IP address from your internal network. 192.168.x.x is a priviate network and cannot be accessed from the Internet. If you are coming from the Internet you will need to use your public IP address (www.whatismyip.com) and make sure the correct ports are forwarded to the device from you router.
Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Hi this sounds more like you have a remote access problem, normally you have to input the routers ip address to access the it, the DHCP. has laws that are used by a device such a router or networking adapter or computer. It helps to obtain an IP (internet Protocol) address from a server that possesses a list of addresses for assignment. Generally, when a DHCP- configured machine is booted, the DHCP client sends a query for a response from the DHCP server. This server replies to the DHCP client with an assigned IP address, DNS server, default gateway information and subnet mask. Many firewalls and home routers are constructed to be dhcp for home connection. A DHCP can be as a substitute to a home router. ISPs (Internet Service Provider) use DHCP to allocate clients their individual IP addresses. hope this helps

Kindly eloberate your problem a bit more and answer the following question for providing a better solution.
1. The camera is connected to your router with an RJ 45 or connected to a pc with usb cable.
2. Have you manually given any IP to the camera.
