Wrt54g not updating dyndns
This can only either start with 192.168 or 10…, so you know you are using an internal address if it starts with this.
To access the cameras remotely, you need it’s WAN address.
The problem with this is that it’s likely that this address will change next time turn off and then back on the router or camera.
The first step is to set a fixed address on the camera so that it doesn’t change and you can always find it.
STEP 2 Once you have a fixed IP address, the next step is to update your routers firewall with this information.
The job of the router is to use a single connection to the internet and allow you to use it with multiple devices like cameras and computers.
The default is typically 80, but if you want to have more than one camera, you need to use a different number.
For an IP address, use the first 3 sets of numbers and chose a higher number up to 253 for the last, for example, if it’s 192.168.1.12, you can use an IP address like 192.168.1.100.
Some cameras have 2 way audio, so you can even talk to the person or pet. We all know that if we go to a certain IP address on our home browser, we can configure and view the camera, but how do we do the very same thing when we are not home.
STEP 1 There’s several steps into making this work, so it’s best to start at the camera.
Some have separate screens where you define a service.
A service is a port number assigned to a name, like Camera2 and port 10002, then in the other screen, you select Camera 2 and specify the IP address, 192.168.1.100.
