Hi, Is it normal to have a router with 192.168. IP numbers and a new Dahua NVR using 10.0. ip numbers.?
I upgraded our router and the old one was using 10.0. and am thinking this may have been where it started.
If the cameras are connected to the back of the NVR, one camera one port this is normal. The NVR is on your local home subnet (192.168.x.x) and the cameras are on a dedicated camera subnet (10.0.x.x) .
If the NVR has only one RJ45 ethernet connector, then there is only one local network.
I can still locate and connect the 192. cameras on the NVR, so that means the cameras are going through the network to the NVR? Does that mean that bandwidth could be affected on the home network or is that mainly a problem with wireless cameras using wifi? Appreciate the help.
So I know the NVR has 10.0. IP addresses and some of the cameras plugged directly into the NVR (POE cameras) but they still have 192.168 addresses. What's the fix, Go into the cameras and reset them to DHCP to pick up a new address off the NVR? I've been having trouble logging into the cameras through the NVR. Any work around?
If you want wireless cameras, and you want to keep them on your isolated NVR IP range, you can configure a wireless access point to use an IP address in range of the NVR’s switch and plug it in directly to the NVR’s POE port. The cameras will hit the access point and go right into the NVR. They will never hit your LAN
Yes, but you need to configure the router to act as an AP only, no DHCP. And you need to configure the internal IP to be in range of the NVR’s internal IP range. And yes, the only time the camera traffic will be on your LAN is when your viewing the cameras remotely
Yes your always limited to the number of “channels” the NVR was designed for. Any wireless router can be configured to act as an access point, some are just easier than others to configure. You can always google the procedure for your specific model.
When using a wireless access point for IP cameras set the Access point to use a Separate SSID (network Name) and a seperate wifi channel then your home 2.4 GHz network. Almost all IP cameras use the 2.4 GHZ wifi network. This will separate the camera traffic from your home WiFi network.
Great info. This is very difficult to find out about. Appreciate the help.
We just upgraded to an eero mesh network. Pretty happy with it as our wifi speed picked up from 125mbs with an old apple to 250 - 350mbs now and don't want to bog it down.
Maybe I could pick this up again when the new router arrives. Any suggestions on a dedicated router?
