IP Cameras: Losing connection to a Local Area Network (LAN)

If your IP cameras are losing their connection to your local area network (LAN), check your camera IP settings, NVR IP settings, or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) settings. If your camera’s IP address has been changed due to loss of power or a network issue, you will need to reconnect your IP cameras to your NVR.

To reconnect your IP cameras to your NVR:

  1. Create a DHCP reservation in your router settings to ensure the IP addresses that are saved to your NVR will continue to connect to the network.
  2. Remove you IP cameras on your NVR, and then add your IP cameras on your NVR with a valid IP addresses.
