My DVR doesn't show up on the attached device list on my Netgear router (DGN2200v4) after i reset it because i forgot my login information and i cannot port forward to view camera from a mobile device (error: "Server IP address must be a LAN IP address."). It was working before but now it harder than i first set it up and the DVR is connected through a switch upstairs.

In order to open the required ports, you have to be able to access the router settings. If necessary, you can default the router then use the original manufacturer default user name and password.

We won't turn off or prevent usuage of your router. It is a simple operation and will not interfere with anything.

Another option is for you to open them now that you have access to the router. What you can do is in the DVR you can change the IP address to DHCP so the router will give it an IP from the DCHP pool, then go back and uncheck DHCP option OFF in the DVR so the IP stays static and it will never change. After that you should be able to see it in the List of connected devices in your router. 

 

Thanks
