so my router is dropping my wireless cams
« on: September 15, 2015, 07:58:31 AM »


Affected 5222lb1,2132l,2330l,1 2230

Not affected 3 5010l,5222l.

All are wireless.  I haven't seen any errors in the router logs.

I shutdown my ipod, wired up my desktop and laptop (both were wireless ac,and disabled the wireless as the 5ghz ac stuff caused problems before f/w update).

It's like the ports are being blocked so i can't access the camera. 

It doesn't happen(at least that I'm aware of) when I'm at home, so i can't check from internal ips.

Nothing in camera logs about disconnect from router.

Time for a new router?

It's odd how some aren't affected but the others arent. Haven't changed anything recently in my set up.

What is the Mfr and model# of the router?

You might ask this question to the Mfr about how many devices are supported on the router.

  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many? Use v3, its free.

What happens if you turn OFF the cameras that are not affected and leave the ones that are ON and test?

Non dlink. (Asus).

I guess it's not really dropping, just the ports are getting blocked such that i can't access.

There are alot of routers nearby. Maybe 20 to 30.

I'll check out that app.  Might be like wifi analyzer

Be sure you have uPnP and uPnP Port Forwarding enabled on ALL cameras.

You maybe in a wifi congested area...

I managed to log into 1 5010l cam, the one that always works.  Upnp was not checked.
In the 2230 and 5222lb1,it was checked, but not active. Hitting test button said it failed.

I'll double check what's in the router tonight, but I'm sure it's enabled and hard coded.

Hopefully onto something.

Both should be enabled on ALL cameras.

Keep us posted.

Things aren't as I thought in the router settings.

Waited a day and caught cameras going offline again.

All my ports are forwarded(10/32 max?),but only about 5/64max were manually assigned to an ip address.

I'm going to need to take stock this weekend and assign all the ips manually (the port forward page says i must do that).
That might clear things up for now.

I don't think Port Forwarding is needed if you have uPnP enabled on the main host router and uPnP and uPnP Port Forwarding enabled on ALL cameras.
