Network Setup


First and foremost, you will need to physically connect your DVR to a router. This router can be part of an existing network of computers, or it can be the router/modem supplied by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to connect you to the Internet. This connection will be made by plugging the included Ethernet cable into the port on the back of the DVR marked RJ45. Your DVR is not designed to be connected wirelessly to a network. It is also recommended that the router that the DVR is connected to should be connected directly to the Internet rather than to another router if Internet access is desired as multiple routers can create problems with connectivity. You will also need to have a computer connected to the same router - at least temporarily - to make certain settings.

  • (1)Router Setting
  • DHCP and UPNP are enabled for most home router. If not, check the instruction how to do that.
