Set up using the Belkin N1 F5D8231 wireless router
« on: November 14, 2011, 06:11:02 AM »
I am unable to connect using the Lorex LH118000 8 channel DVR to my Belkin N1 F5D8231-4-V3000 wireless router. It is not listed as one of the compatible port forwarding routers, does this mean I have to change my router?

I can get it added for ya :-)
Download my router screen capture program http://www.pcwintech.com/router-screen-capture

Use it to view every page in the router, I need them all. Then once you get those to me I can get your router added, screen shot page, and the guides written :-)

I am assuming you would like the screen shots to set up auto port forwarding, is it possible to manually port forward the belkin wireless?

My laptop keeps saying that the lorex ip is unreachable even though I have added the lorex ip address in the belkin router.

I tried connecting to your internet IP and I get a fatpipe warp screen?

The belkin doesn't play nice with reverse nat.

SO when on the same network you will use its local IP. When outside its network like I am you will use your internet IP or the DDNS name :wink:

when I run the auto port forwarding program it states that I have 2 routers. I have modem and the belkin wireless router, I am not sure if the modem is also a router. have a look at the screen shots and let me know what I should do.

Looks like you missed a lot of pages that I need.

But that's OK, I checked and this model Belkin - F5D8231-4 v5 (Belkin Firmware) uses the same pages. So just use that one in the program.

Also for the 2 routers give this read :wink:

I read the two router port forwarding link but I am lost, I really need your help with this. When I choose the router you suggested I got message that stated that entry 1 and 2 have same protocol and entry port range.

First thing is to take care of the 2 router problem.

1. Log into the belkin. On the first page you will see the WAN ip. Write it down.
2. on the same page under WAN IP you will see the WAN gateway. This is the IP to use to log into the other router.
3. Once logged into the other router find the DMZ page. There enable it, and put in the IP you wrote down then click save.

Once that is done the port forwarding rules should start working in the belkin. :wink:

Post a screen shot of the network setup in the DVR and another screen shot of the port forwarding page in the router. This will let me see if it is setup correctly :wink:

Are you sure 192.168.2.2 is the local IP of the DVR?

Do you have a monitor hooked to the DVR so you can view its network settings?
