« on: January 25, 2014, 09:39:53 AM »
I wanna say your forum is great and you are very knowledgeable seem very smart! I have learned alot from reading on here thank you.

SO here is my issue.... I have lorex cameras dvr 3cams hooked right now to netgear router N600.. Everything was totally fine then i plugged in another computer to a port with the eathernet line now ports are saying closed on my cameras.

I tried reading forums to not bother you but cannot find my answer. I changed nothing i just plugged in another computer. Ican view the cams in lorex app on andriod while im here on this network but when im home or remote viewing it wont connect. Iwent to Checkmyports.net and checked them and they are saying CLOSED. Not sure why as i changed nothing just added a eathernet line to a computer?
please help! Thanks i can provide any info needed

I dont normally respond on the weekends as I am with my wife and kids so sorry for the late reply :-)

So far everything looks good. Have you rebooted the dvr and router yet? Also after you do that make sure the local Ip on the dvr has changed :wink:
