|If this has been answered before, sorry, I'm a hardware guru never really messed with networking until now so I hope somebody can help me. I generally pick this stuff up pretty fast once someone shows me the basics; this one really stumping me..help please....|
Hardware setup, Home network consisting of:
Desktop PC-running xp 64 bit prof
Bedroom Media server-running xp 32 bit prof
VOIP phone (tmobile at home)
Netgear WNDR3300 dual band access point/router
Linksys dual sim card router for the tmobile at home voip phone
The media server and the xbox 360 are served networking via a Linksys dual band game adapter and a small 4 port netgear switch that allows the xbox and the media server to share internet and networking off the linksys game adapter.
I'm trying to get a trendnet TV-IP201W wireless G camera to work on the network. I already called trendnet they were useless; it works wired they blame it on the wireless Netgear router that it won't work wirelessly. I can ping the camera if it's wired, can't when trying to go wireless. The camera supposedly needs a static IP but it also has settings to receive address via dhcp.
The netgear router is the one that attaches to the computer, the tmobile at home linksys product connects to the netgear and my cables for my wired pcs are connected to the linksys.
The netgear router is accessed via 192.168.1.1, the linksys router is accessed via 184.108.40.206.0, both use subnet 255.255.255.0.
The netgear router has dhcp enabled and is serving the IP addresses.
I have no issues getting internet serving enabled from the linksys game adapter, xbox complains about it a little bit but it works anyhow. I "used" to be able to get either the bedroom media server or the desktop to see the other on the network (but I've never had the desktop and the media server able to see each other at the same time, it's always been one not both) and pass files back and forth but that has not worked for awhile (I suspect a MS$ update broke it). The net works and that's mostly what I care about.
What could I be doing wrong with the trendnet camera???? Like I said trendnet was worthless, they'd have me believe that all I should need to do is give the camera the network name (SSID) and it all should work; it doesn't. I got it working wirelessly once, on reboot didn't work again.
I found a hint on a customer review of the camera that if you have your network set to 192.168.1.1 that it will be a difficult install to make the camera work.
I have been fooling with this for days, I'm sure anyone with a lick of knowledge can tell exactly what's going on so helppppp. I'm a bit convinced that perhaps the xp 64 bit on the desktop could be part of the issue (Trendnet said nothing when I told them that was the issue). I'm a bit tempted to see what may happen if I hook the camera to the bedroom server by cable and try to ping it.
ANY AND ALL HELP DESPERATELY APPRECIATED!!!!!
The camera information is as follows:
static IP 192.168.0.30, subnet mask 255.255.255.0,
default gateway 192.168.1.1
