Port forwarding issue

I have connected a 4 channel DVR Camera system to the westell 327w router. Did the port forwarding inside the router programming, and I am able to view the cameras remotely. But after a while it seems the ports are closing on the router, not allowing me to view the cameras. We have disabled the firewall settings and also replaced the router. We are using a DDNS service where we don't have to have a static IP to view the cameras. Can anyone help with this issue?

    Same problem here, except I am using Static IP.
    Router/Modem is Westell 327w with ports 80 & 8000 forwarded.
    Home browser is IE7 with popup blocker off and active-x enabled.
    All done according to instructions, still can't connect at all.

SOURCE: westell model 327w

you can run another ethernet cable from your westell modem to your laptop. hence, if you want your laptop to connect wirelessly, it must have a wireless card/adapter inside. if it already has a wireless adapter, it should automatically detect your wireless network and you just need to connect to it (note: you need to enter the correct wireless security/network key if you have enabled it on your modem). by default the serial number is the ssid of the router and the wireless security is disabled. but if you are not sure of your wireless security, log on to the modem's web user interface by typing on your web browser's address. then go to the wireless section and verify your wireless settings from there.

hope this'll help you.

SOURCE: I need an IP address for my Westell 327W router.

Hi froggysmz321,

The best way to determine your IP address is to click start run and enter cmd then at the dos prompt enter ipconfig /all which will bring up all the IP address associated with that machine. The IP that your looking for is called the Gateway. Next to that is your routers IP.

Good Luck,

And don't forget to leave a rating.

I cannot access my internet viewer

More details are required.
The Samsung 'SmartViewer' program starts up on a computer. You can access it whether you have a recorder or not.
The Samsung 4 channel DVR has a menu to set IP address & ports to use and a netjack to connect to internet. You can access the DVR from any computer connected to the same router as the DVR by inserting the same correct info into 'SmartViewer' as in the the DVR.
Once you open the required ports in your router, port forward the router to the DVR, any incoming requests from the internet to view should connect and with the correct password you can view your security cams.
With minor adjustments..that's it.

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Port foward on a westell 327w

Ok this is an easy one, have a look at this tutorial at the link below it is quite long but easy to follow .

I have switched to a Westell VersaLink 327W from a older Westell Wirespeed. The Wirespeed communicated via USB and the new Westell communicates via Ethernet. How do I get the computer to see the modem?

If you are using a Westell DSL modem with ethernet connection, then you connect the modem's ethernet port to the computer's network card. This also uses an ethernet cable. Good Luck
