In short, user bought the DCS and was very unhappy about constant disconnection of camera from his WiFi network. His camera could work for 15 minutes then might not to connect to router at all, then again camera could work almost all day or again for 15 min.
Maybe your camera have the same issue? If you do not afraid to void your warranty, you can check the temperature and if needed replace the wifi module, all you need is just buy any RTLCUS-based usb wifi dongle there's a lot of them on local and online stores, for example Upvel UAWNand solder it instead of original one.
Or maybe adding some heat removal system on the wifi chip could help an aluminium bar or something like this.
Sorry for my bad English P. The wifi module is on the top right corner of this fotothese 4 pins on it is modified usb connector. Quote from: nmadole on May 11,PM. New Problem with same camera When I select the feed from the disconnecting camera in my DNR and try to download a video clip Disabled IPv6 on my new modem.
The Technicolor modem had IPv6 disabled by default. Selected channel 1 instead of allowing the modem to auto-select my channel. Angled my modem. It was facing East-West on my desk. I now have it facing more Southeast-Northwest. The back end of the modem is now pointing more towards the middle of my house. At present, I've got pretty decent 29Mbps download speed over my Wi-fi network.Sales' Skype Technician's Skype.
Though nowadays's IP video surveillance equipment becomes more and more easy to setup and use, some users may still encounter some problems if they are newbies to the IP video surveillance system.
If there is no conflict, please check the network switch functionality, or replace another network switch to test. If you also encountered some problems on camera connection to the NVR, but found the solution, please don't hesitate to share with us by commenting below.

Despite everything looking correct, it can still take some extra effort to bring IP cameras up and operational.
As IP video matures, the technology gets easier to configure, but it is still far from "plug and play".How to - One or few cameras do not show videos in my xmartO camera system
Every technician should have a few basic troubleshooting techniques up their sleeve to get IP cameras online and working. In this note, we detail the Top 10 basic troubleshooting tips for IP camera connections. Reboot the camera: Some consider the 'Golden Rule' of IT troubleshooting to first reboot the device before proceeding. Simply restarting the camera gives the chance for cache to flush, settings to recalibrate, and connections to be renegotiated.
This step is the least difficult and cheapest to perform, one only has to remove power, wait 10 or 15 seconds, and then restore power. Ping the camera and discover it: Type " cmd " into the Windows search box to open a DOS command prompt and the use the "ping" command to see if you can connect to the camera. For example, if your camera's address is There can be many reasons for that, the most basic being that the camera and the computer are on different networks or subnets.
If you are receiving proper connection replies, use a web browser or the manufacturer's discovery utility to connect to the camera.
Top 10 IP Camera Troubleshooting Tips
If you need help with this process, review this IPVM Basic Networking Tutorial on using manufacturer's camera discovery utilities, pinging cameras and setting your PC's IP address to be on the same network as the camera. It's good practice to keep a record of the MAC and IP addresses of installed cameras for troubleshooting purposes.
In a similar manner to ping in Tip 2 above, the ARP command can be used to show the IP and MAC addresses of devices connected to the network, just type "arp -a" at the command prompt.
Confirm IP Addresses are not conflicting: Take care that two devices are assigned the same address, because this often has the result of 'cancelling out' network access to either device.
A simple "fat finger" while inputting the camera's address, gateway or subnet can cause all kinds of havoc. The ARP command listed in Tip 3 can help with this.
Verify Camera Power and connection: If possible, look at the camera to make sure it is powered up. Most cameras have LED's that indicate the camera's power status, and if it is connected to and transmitting data to the network.
Many times these LED's may be concealed inside the camera's housing. If it is a PoE camera and not powered, check to see if it is plugged into a PoE switch or midspan.
Another pitfall may be the PoE network switch itself.
Some PoE switches do not have enough power to supply 15W to every port and will not supply power to another camera if it is already overloaded.Love this software! Tested trial for several days and cameras and just bought the Home version. Now, with these new cameras, my video connects ok, but is disconnecting periodically — on for about seconds and off for the same approximate times.
Only have 2 connected right now, and they act independently of each other. But, they both come and go about the same — just different times. I own 6 of these cameras and this is happening using each of them.
They work flawlessly on their own software and on Blue Iris. I have tried 3 different computers. Yes, all drivers are correct. Then, usage drops off and video returns only to repeat. The i7 also shows heavy CPU usage yet does not drop the video. I have tried various camera connection methods and all seem to have the same result. Problem is the same with wired cameras as well as WiFi. Thank you for your message! Could you specify camera resolutions, fps and bitrate.
IP Camera WiFi Not Working – Can't Connect to WiFi
Is it possible to get a guest account for connecting one of your cameras? Yes to providing your access to the system. PM me the way to provide you Anydesk remote access to this i7 laptop. Sorry for the late reply. I think we were able to fix the problem, now the application is being tested, during the day I will provide you with a link to the updated distribution so that you can check the application on your cameras. Uninstalled old and installed new pgm using this latest version. Immediately noticed memory usage is much lower!
However, the video continues to come and go — as before. I noticed on an android tablet, running Tiny Cam Pro connected to 2 of these cameras that I was seeing the same video symptoms… edit — Rosewill provides their own software and using that, the video never flickers. It is stable at all times. The video never even flickers.

Can anyone help please. I currently have 5 IP cameras set up around my property but one is giving me some issues. It has power as the IR led's are illuminated in the nights it just the picture that goes. If i shut power off to the camera and turn back on it will be back but it can go back off after a few hours sometimes a few days, it's typical that its the one camera that i really want constantly working as i can keep an eye on the car and catch the peple who let thier dogs mess all over the path Thanks to anyone who can help.
Phil Administrator Staff member. Messages 3, Points Hi Shaun, Step 1 is to make sure that all your HikVision devices are running the latest firmware. Step 2 - if it continues, the camera's have a Log - does that give any clues as to what is happening?
What brand are your cameras please? Hi Phil.
They are longse cameras that I purchased directly from the manufacturer. How do I carry that out? Do I access the camera via its IP address? You should be able to search for Longse firmware here - Firmware - Longse I couldn't find any guides or videos on how to update Longse firmware. I have tried to access the camera via its IP address from my laptop when connect via ethernet cable to the router but I keep getting web page unreachable???Minimum search word length is 3 characters - maximum search word length is 84 characters.
Login name. Remember me. When looking at the monitor connected to the DVR they are recording and working properly.
I have tried connecting on multiple computers, using different ports on the switch and I put the DVR's on their own vLAN subnet to rule out network traffic issues but they are still doing the same thing. When the DVR's lose connection to the software or browser they will still respond to PING's so they are not dropping completely off the network.
Are there any advanced settings on the DVR that I am missing that could cause this issue? Have you tried to isolate the DVR and your computer using a separate different switch? I can't tell exactly how you configure the DVR for your Vlan. Vlan settings are done at the switch and the DVR network address, mask and gateway should be configured based on the VLAN that will be connected to.
The best way to rule out this issue is to connect your PC and DVR completely isolated from that switch and use a standard switch to test the connections.
If you don't experience the same problem then is something related to your connections on that Cisco Switch. IP conflict maybe? Where does this happen, locally where the units are, using IP addresses of the units to hit them, or remotely using ports forwarded and using a dynamic host like no-ip?
This is locally on the same network using the IP address to connect. Computers are on a separate vLAN but there are static routes between the subnets.
There is no IP conflict. Have you checked that each TCP port is different? One can remain but the others will need to change, such asand so on. The DVR's are all on different ports already. Yes, we have to run trunk mode between the switches because we have multiple vLANs on each switch but the DVR that is plugged into the same switch as the computer is still losing connection.

All my cameras are connected to switch mbp solution: should i connect to each of my switch a mbps switch?
If you have a managed catalyst then you should be able to view port details and see the throughput to your remote switches. You really only need Gigabit uplinks, your managed switches can do port vlans to dumb switches.
Sometimes you have to branch networks off into a tree setup instead of a central trunking point, yeah ideally you want everything trunked through a single device but as long as you design your network correctly its fine branching switches out to buildings and floors.
Is there any chance you can move your NVR location so its plugged into switch 3 or whatever switch has the most cameras plugged into it? Last edited by a moderator: Mar 6, Hi please question what is the best network category cable for ip camera? Kawboy12R Known around here. Joined Nov 18, Messages 1, Reaction score Cat 5e utp is the daily workhorse. Generally Cat 6 for higher power requirements like ptzs or cams with heaters because of the larger wire gauge.
Choose burial grade for, well, burying or even exposed outdoor locations. Cat 5 avoid like the plague if you can even find some.
People that say "Cat 5" nowadays generally really mean it as shorthand for Cat5e. Ftp is file transfer protocol. Maybe you meant stp? Shielded twisted pair. Any properly installed and routed cable suited for the location should never lose signal to an IP cam at under m.
Look for routing mistakes, bad crimps, or breaks in the wire. Avoid copper clad aluminum CCA like the plague. Also, use solid core for all runs, not stranded wire. That's basically just for patch cords. Cat 5 should be fine for cameras.
