Why are you turning the router off? There is no reason for it. There should be a way to give the cameras a static IP address.

Hi thanks for replying back,The reason i turn my wireless router off because i lose connection, even if theres a power failure my ip address changes i wounder if theres a way for the ip address to be picked up by the wireless ip cameras in the installation it says to tick the box for UPNP status but when i do tick the box and reboot the ip camera and then i go back on the ip camera setup to view my cam then i lose wireless conaction so thats why i turn off and on my router so i can get my conaction back the reson is because i ticked the upnp protocol settings on the setup for the wireless ip cameras,what happens is i get wireless conaction for around a minute then i lose conaction then it comes back on after a minute again .When i go back to the ip camera setup and an tick the upnp protocol box i then get wireless conaction back and it works fine, this is confusing,king regards johnny

Use static IP addresses. That should solve your DHCP problem.
