Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a plusnet service provider and a Thomson router TG585v8. I need to access a cctv cmera remotely. This has always worked perfectly with my old Madasafish router, but doesn't now. The cctv supplier has tried without success to configure the router to connect to the CCTV computer, but without success. Can you do it remotely if I log you in?

    Thank you, but I don't know what DMZ is or where it might be. I can't see it where you suggest, Roderick James

    thank you for trying to help. I'm afraid that doesn't appear to work, but it may be because I don't actually know what I'm doing.
    I go abroad tonight, so I can't do anything else now, but I will have to abandon all attempts for the time being and try again in a month or so.
    Regards, Roderick James

Well yes i can but fixya policy will not allow me, anyway its easy,
1.) set your dmz to connect to your cctv's IP.. the dmz settings foward incoming connects to that ip bypassing the routers firewall..
2.) you can set up port fowarding if you wish but the dmz is better..
I'm not sure exactly where its located but DMZ is there .. its in the same section as setup and port fowarding , virtual server etc.

    Check your network settings
    Start, control panel, networking and sharing center. Click on your connection, properties. Click on TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 and click on properties. Make sure the settings say to obtain IP address automatically and also for DNS, then reboot the modem and computer.

    How can i get nat type open i always have nat type strict. my Router is a thomson tg585v8

    I believe certain routers are certain NAT types. If there is not an option to change NAT type on the web interface for your router, then it is what it is.

    Hope that helps

    I have no problem in the conections to the net, but i have used all the possible user names and passwords but i still can not inter thomson gateway . i use tg585v8-router

    Reset the router and start the configuration from the begining. There's no need to "crack" the password or user name if you physically have the device.
    Make sure you write down and save the password after you change it from its default or you will have to do this over again.

    I want to change the wa mac address on my Thomson tg585v8 router

    You can't change a MAC address. It is a burnt in address put in by the manufacturer of the router. There are ways to spoof an address or use the MAC address of your PC when accessing the Internet. You can change your IP address if that is what you are trying to do.thomson.jpg

    you will have to allow the devices in the router wirless or direct connectivity setup in the router it self. If the router does not have permission to connect the device they will not be allowed to connect.
    log in to the router and set up each device accordingly.

    Cctv remote view/ adtran total access 900e

    It's not likely that VZ gave you dynamic IP's, but it's possible. You should have been given more than one. If not, it's better to get more and a set of configuration instructions. In the last one I set up, we put a 5-port switch on the ethernet port coming off the Adtran, then fed 2 routers and a security system from the switch. Our gateway was one number lower than the bank of IP's we had, and we just gave each piece of equipment a static ip address and gateway to the gateway :-)
