Yes they are fed to a centrally based video server.
They are on two different (cant remember the exact models) Netgear mid-priced routers the IP cameras are Ethernet coupled, not DHCP but assigned IP and the routers are on static IP address ADSL. The routers have wireless enabled but only I access the routers that way when I take my laptop or tablet to the locations.
They are stand alone routers, no pc attached. Nothing else attached, not even a telephone, straight to adsl socket.. One of them is live on a website the other is not yet on there but functioning ok. as I can access them remotely as I can the routers. NOTHING shares the two separate telephone lines. Only I and the video server company can access them, the routers logs show no other intrusions. The ISP (BT) have done their line tests and say they are fine (don't they always...). and they are on separate lines at separate locations within the town. It cant be number of visitors as they feed to a central video server and in any case one of them is not live yet.
The cameras are Panasonic WV-SC384 H.264 compliant. They are on a separate mains socket from the router and have given no trouble. I fitted time switches to the two routers so they go off for five minutes every night (OFF 01:00h ON 01:05h) so if they have frozen and when I cant get there, they reboot that night anyway. This works ok as I can see the reboots in the logs. Gut feeling is that I need more robust routers? What does the "team" recommend for such an application?
