This subject has been posted and I have tried all the solutions with no success.
I have ^ Foscam 19810W cams at 2 locations. The first location has no issues but the second location keeps dropping connection randomly to any of the 3 cams. They may run a few days and then suddenly no cam connection to 1 cam. I used static address but since I only connect to the cams within the network, this isn't necessary. If I use the Foscam IPCamera camera finder software it only finds 2 out of 3 cams. I am running Blue Iris to pan, take pics and periodically upload to the web server. Firmware is up to date. The only way to reconnect is to power down the can and then let it reboot after power up. The cams are less that 1 year old.
I am starting to wonder if the network has a problem and might be getting overloaded.
Does anyone know of any network monitoring software that could report when a connection to a device has terminated?
One person mentioned changing the contrast of the camera, that didn't work either.
Any other possible solutions would be appreciated.
You are very welcome.
I need help with configuration of static ip adress.
My network is 10.1.1.1 with SM: 255.255.0.0
I try to configure adress 10.1.5.100 and because my DG is 10.1.1.254 i get error that DG is not in the same network.
Please make sure that you have the most current firmware for your camera model installed:http://www.foscam.com/download-center/firmware-downloads.html
Are using more than one Router/AP? If so, please see this:
Here is an example on how two times port forwarding should be setup. When dealing with two routers and cameras:
For example, the LAN IP of router1 is 192.168.0.1, LAN IP of router2 is 192.168.11.1, its WAN IP is 192.168.0.5, you can get these information in LAN and WAN settings in your router.
Camera and PC both connect to router2, PC’s LAN IP is 192.168.11.23, camera’s LAN IP is 192.168.11.56, port is 85.
Here are the steps to do these two port forwarding:
1）First, please do port forwarding in router2, forward to camera’s ip 192.168.11.56 and port 85;
2）Second, please do port forwarding in router1, forward to router2’s ip 192.168.0.5 and port 85;
Router1: forward to router2 (IP is 192.168.0.5, port 85)
Router2: forward to camera (IP is 192.168.11.56, port 85)
Also, please see this it has the most stable configuration settings for ALL Foscam camera models:http://foscam.us/forum/post15934.html#p15934
