    Had my router's internet set @ 192.168.0.1
    All my cams were @ 192.168.0.x

    Resetting my router caused its internet @ 192.168.1.1
    It seems not to find my cameras.

    I tried SADP to change cam setting, but it no longer works.
    I obviously know very little about ip settings.
    I can either change the router back 192.168.0.1, or find a way to change 3 hiks and 1 Dahua

    Any suggestions?

    most routers use a Class C mask (255.255.255.0) which means 192.168.0.1 is an entirely different network than 192.168.1.1. I would do what @fenderman said and switch the router back to 192.168.0.1.

    It's much easier to change the router than to touch each one of the cameras.

    Thanks fenderman I sort of was leaning that way but needed expert confirmation.
