Ok fenderman, thanks for your reply
I have another question and apologise in advance if its stupid.
If I connect remotely to my cameras using a mobile data connection do all the security problems highlighted in the previous post by fenderman still apply
Read how to secure your network in the Wiki at the top of the page.
If not using a VPN, it's like leaving the front door on your house unlocked and wide open, thus anyone can get in.
Same thing when it comes to the internet if you don't have a properly setup VPN between your router and your remote device.
If you have problems setting this up, hire the neighborhood computer geek to do it for you.
I had in fact setup the open vpn on an asus router but had variuos problems with the router unrelated I think to the vpn so sent it back.
Once I set up an open vpn will this protect my network when using other comps/tablets to connect to the internet as well as providing a secure connection for remote access to my cameras?
Please read the Cliff Notes and how to secure your network in the Wiki at the top of the page.

Very rare to hear of problems with Asus routers.
