Can't see CCTV DVR on network.


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I have added a security camera DVR (H264 type) to my network by connecting a LAN cable to my Asus router. The DVR is viewable locally using an attached monitor and is working ok.

My office PC is located 25metres away and I'd like to see the DVR on that. The remote PC is connected to the ASUS router indirectly with another LAN cable to an old Netgear router I set up as a switch and wireless repeater in the office.

If I look at my PC network I can 'see' the ASUS router but not the DVR connected to it. If I look at the client devices attached to the router I see the DVR listed and know it's IP address.

I'm trying to use the provided software to see the DVR output; xmeye. It simply doesn't know the DVR is there.

Any suggestions?

What's the IP address of the DVR and what's the IP address of the Office PC?

The PC is 192.168.1.3

The DVR is 192.168.1.10

So they're on the same subnet.

Is the Netgear attached to the Asus using Ethernet?

Yes. it's set up using the same SSID and password as the Asus so it acts as a wireless repeater. That all seems to work ok. I'm not using the wireless here though of course.

By the way, this isn't my area of expertise in case you hadn't twigged that already!

Can you plug the ethernet cable from the ASUS into the PC instead of into the Netgear?

I could. Temporarily. What would that do?

That would rule out the Netgear as the problem, if the problem remains.

Did that and even rebooted the Asus. Hasn't made any difference.

Where does all that dust come from behind my PC?

Sorry to say that's mainly skin frown

How does the attached monitor connect?
