I got a new NVR to replace the existing old NVR. It uses a separate POE switch. The old one had a output for the POE switch and an output for outside LAN(router) line. The new one only has one. I tried configuring all the same settings on the new NVR but I can't seem to see any of the cameras. the new NVR is NVR5216-4KS2
any help would be appreciated.

Hi @grendel54

The NVR5216-4KS@ does not have PoE ports, so all cameras must come in via the LAN port .. this means the LAN and cameras must be in the same subnet .. example 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x .. or whatever you are using for the LAN ip addresses.

Note, this can create some security concerns unless the IP camera network is isolated from the company LAN / home LAN by another router / firewall product or the like

The router automatically spits out the string 192.168.1.XXX, the cameras are all set at 192.168.10.101 - 192.168.10.113. The NVR accepted a IP of 192.168.1.65. Not sure what else to change.

Hi Grendel54

Double check the netmasks and IPs ...
