    I have another question while I can now view all my cameras (except doorbell camera) from my BI apps (iPad's & Android phone) my wife who is in a nursing home still can't... which is now locked down. I took a picture of the my BI app's Edit page and verbally told her what the new LAN & WAN...

    Well my two devices are both finicky anyway when it comes to connecting to WiFi... what I don’t know is if it has anything to do with my route’s combined 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz or whether it’s due to its flakey software. The way I understood the installer is that the two bands were combined instead of...

    If anyone's still around maybe you can answer this for me. With this new Calix router I remember the tech saying when he installed it that it combined the 2.4 Ghz & 5 Ghz bands and used the one that was the strongest... with my old router I was able to choose what band a particular device...

    Is that a simple setting in BI to tell the app when your external IP address updates?

    Just got off the phone with ISP tech and no problem he set up port forwarding no questions asked! I wasn't looking forward to calling them again because the last two times I got the same tech and he didn't act like he wanted to help me like it was a waste of his time. This time though I got a...

    Well no-ip is a DDNS service recommended to me on this forum a few years ago by Fenderman. I can't seem to get the base off the router since I'm sure it's blocking all the info so all I know is it's a Calix but don't know the model.

    Well I've always had my own router too until now. When I first signed up with our local ISP (live in rural area) I had the choice of using their router or mine and I kept mine. Now to upgrade to the next speed package they require you to use their router and let them maintain it. With my router...

    This is where it starts getting confusing to me when we start talking about VPN’s, port forwarding, and DDNS services. That said I do remember setting up port forwarding in my old router and I have a free account with no-ip.com. So are you saying they need to be set back up in the new router in...

    Thanks guys I’m pretty much up and running I had my ISP change it so now my cameras are back! Still one issue though the BI app on my Android phone and iPad is not connecting to the server yet. I compared the LAN and WAN in the mobile app to the BI Web Server settings and they are the same. Got...

    Well the cameras are connected to the Poe switch and the PC is connected to the router... yes I’m running Windows 10. So if I follow your directions to change the network settings on my PC then everything should be back to normal where my cameras see’s the network correct? BI will then pickup...

    Well when the tech installed the new router it wasn’t connecting to the internet and he was about out of ideas when I said let’s let Windows troubleshoot and try to fix it. I remember it said the DHCP was disabled so we let it enable it so guess must of changed it. I actually am used to going...
