|Yep the camera didn't stop work...i just clicked disconnect so stopped viewing.|
That's good to know. It means that camera is working and we can concentrate on the other one.
What we now know about existing IP's that show up in your scan:
192.168.2.1 = SOHO Router
192.168.2.2 = computer
192.168.2.3 = computer
192.168.2.5 = camera
From the above I would suspect the other camera was configured with 192.168.2.4 as it's IP address.
so retried ipview and assigning a new ip and i tried 4, 6, 8 all were rejected 'ip conflict' thing happened again.
As I said above, I suspect that camera was 192.168.2.4 and since you tried it and 6 that leaves me thinking the camera's config has to be bad since you are sure it's on. A factory reset will likely be the only option. Sadly the manual doesn't detail how to reset it to factory defaults. I would suggest you try a google search or two. If it were me I'd use the camera info (make/model) and do a search like the following:
"reset make/model to factory defaults"
With luck that will find you the info you need. If that doesn't, check on the device itself for a reset button. If it has one, it will reset in one of two ways. Either holding the reset button in while powering the device, or , with it powered up, press and hold reset for 10 seconds.
If you get it reset, the manual shows the default IP address of the device as being: 192.168.0.20 In order to configure it, you will have to plug it directly into your computer and change your computer's IP address to match that subnet.
So, assuming you get it reset, unplug your computer from your router and put that plug into the camera. Power the camera on. Then change your IP address on your computer to 192.168.0.10 (subnet mask 255.255.255.0) and you should then be able to connect to the camera via your web browser by typing it's IP address in the URL field.
You can also test connectivity by pinging the camera in a command prompt window (ie: ping 192.168.0.20)
- Before changing the IP address on your computer, if the existing IP is statically assigned, write it down so you know what to put it back to when you're done setting up the camera. If the computer is set to DHCP, just set it back to that when you're done and it will most likely get the same IP address back again.
- If you can't find a reset button the camera, and can't find any reset information on the internet, I suggest connecting the camera directly to your computer, change the computer's IP to 192.168.0.10 and try pinging the camera anyway. It's possible it reset itself automatically to factory defaults and that's why it isn't responding now.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
