    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...

    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...

    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...

    Well that’s strange because it’s showing 192.168.1.5 LAN IP of BI machine and my cams are all 192.168.0.xxx why did this change? I know with my old router the LAN IP of BI machine was 192.168.0.xx. So how do I get the LAN IP of BI machine to show 192.168.0.xx I’m not that sharp with network...

    This might be perfect for my 86 year old mother instead of something like my IPC-HDW5231R-Z (can you still get?). If I set her up with BI are there any features you couldn't do without except if you wanted Audio?

    Help with indoor camera choice

    Mat200 actually 2-way audio is not that big of a deal didn't realize none of the better cameras didn't have them. The LaView looks like a pretty cheap camera to me think I want something better than that. So what do you think of using a wall mount with the Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-AS do you think it...
