Home routers are probably most of the time not up to the task of spreading a clear and robust signal throughout the house. The reason for this is varied, the applications on the router will not live up to the task or the amount of interference produced by a home may affect the overall distance that a wi-fi signal could be sent. There are many choices to share your web connection throughout the home, some are expensive, for example to wire your own home through physical access points or a WiFi repeater. This guide will introduce you to the essential steps of creating a wireless repeater using a LinkSys Wi-fi-G WRT54GL.
Although this is not directly related to the configuration of your DVR, it is advisable to have all the video lines of your security camera at a central point with the right cables (BNC, RCA, RG59, etc …) ; This way, you are ready to connect them to your DVR as soon as you have it installed.
It is now time to test your configuration using the Windows command-line interface. To do this, click on “Start” => “All Programs” => “Accessories” => right-click on “Command Prompt” and click on “Run as Administrator”. Now, type on your console the command “ipconfig / all”. Then locate your connection and check if the different settings you have previously defined for your connection have been applied and active.
To access it, simply insert it in the address bar of the Web browser. In this case, it will also be possible to display a number of options once you have discovered the default account information. At a time once you go into the settings pane, you are able to take care of security, modem functions, WEP or even DHCP adjustments or booting your LAN system.
The implementation of the dual IP stack is in place in most modern operating systems. This is a transient way to run IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously. In this way, programmers can write applications to accept connections on IPv4 or IPv6 interfaces. Hybrid IPv6 / IPv4 dual stack addresses are something else you will encounter. These are special addresses where the first 80 bits are set to 0, the next 16 are set to 1 and the last 32 bits are your IPv4 address. Here is an example of a dual hybrid stack: :: ffff: 192.168.1.1 You can see that it looks like an IPv4 address with the prefix :: ffff :.
It should be that; You should now be able to connect to your PC from almost any internet connection. Remember that you can use the remote desktop client’s advanced features, such as connecting your local drives, printers, and so on.
Some IP addresses are set by default by the factory. The IP 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1 are two of them. The IP address 192.168.1.254 is the default for some home-based broadband routers and modems. These include the Linksys SRW2024 Series switches, some 3Com OfficeConnect routers, and Billion ADSL routers. Although this parameter is set at the factory, it can be modified using the software provided by the vendor for managing the hardware and associated software. 192.168.1.254 is an IPv4 (private) network address. Although any device on a local network can use it, only one device on that network must use that address at a time. This is true for any IP address and is necessary to avoid IP address conflicts.
After viewing your information page on the router (and you are connected, which is sometimes necessary), look for a status page and your “IP WAN”. This IP address is the IP address assigned to your router as an external IP for your incoming traffic.
If you can not access the Internet, you will need to manually set some router settings. You may need to contact your ISP for these settings. If the router’s status LED indicates that it has an Internet connection, check your computer’s firewalls for interference with the Internet and make sure they are configured correctly.
