I just installed a new Linksys Mesh router and I have 2 wireless IP camera’s in my system that are missing, both on my DVR and using config tool.

I have the same wireless network name and PW set up, and the same local IP addresses.

What am I missing?

Hello Mark,

 

You would have to redo the camera programming, having the same SSID and Passphrase is one thing but your new Linksys hardware may be serving a different encryption type or 5GHz rather than 2.4, etc.. Your best bet is to reprogram the cameras and then you should see them on the network.

I will give that a try. Been years since I did that! Hope I don’t mess it up!

I have to short a couple of wires if memory serves, and hook up directly correct? Direct to camera or can I do it via network (Crossover cable required?)

In other words, Can I hook directly up to the camera from computer with a standard ethernet cable?

Got it done. All I had to do was hook up to the camera and re-connect to my network like you said in your first post. I can log into the static IP I gave them with my Mac, but cannot see an image (I knew that) but I could get to the setup tab and get to the settings.

 

Thanks Jose.
