    Cannot connect to ip cameras using ip address

    Probably but it did not work for me when i tried it a few days ago. Once unplugging, waiting, and plugging back in failed to work I decided to post up here. Someone suggested unplugging for at least 5 min so I unplugged it and called it a night. Plugged it in this morning and everything works again.

    Cannot connect to ip cameras using ip address

    Im just trying to help narrow down the problem. An hp procurve is probably less likely to have an issue vs a $10 amazon switch.

    Cannot connect to ip cameras using ip address

    Yes its the browser itself telling me the cameras cannot be reached. I will try unplugging the switch tonight and then plug it back in tomorrow. Also i got the ip addresses for the cameras from the router page and the ip addresses in the router are set to static.

    Hello Everyone. Here's what I'm after

    Look at dahua cams. There is a member on here that sells them for reasonable prices and they are below your budget per cam which means you can buy more cams. Look into the dahua starlight's for good nightime images.

    Yeah I was pricing out sticks of ram and they are pretty pricey. It seems a better value to buy a pc with 8gb already if that's what I need. Thanks
