I have stumbled upon this forum having searched endlessly for some help!
Right, I have:
A virginmedia wifi connection in my house which has a laptop, ipad and mobile phone using it.
A 'VONETS VAP11G' wifi bridge
'EN6404V' DVR (for home cctv)
'Avtech Eagle EyesHD (plus) 126.96.36.199' on the ipad
What's happened so far?…
By some pure fluke I've managed to get the Volnet wifi bridge to have its blue light on whilst plugged into the dvr's ethernet cable port.
I have absolutely no idea about networking and 'gateways' and 'subnet masks' mean absolutely nothing to me I'm afraid!
On the pre-loaded software on the dvr is a menu and settings for joining a network…. the three options are 'STATIC' , 'DHCP' or 'PPPOE' – each option as a multitude of ports / channels /gateways etc etc to fill in. I've tried googling what all these means and it just doesn't make sense to me!
Could one of you guys please explain how on earth I get my non-wifi ip cameras to connect to my wifi network (so I can view on ipad / remotely etc.) using this vonets bridge I've purchased. I'm stumped!
