Huawei 523a Router doesnt allow IP Camera port forwarding

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi Guys
I have a Huawei 523a Router at the moment and I'm trying to setup a IP camera.
The Router doesnt allow port forwarding, so my question is can I add another Router onto the Huawei router to allow the second one to work my camera.
If so what router would allow me to do this.

Hope this makes sense as I'm hopeless with computers!!

Thanks
Steven.

You would replace the router, not add a router.

Will any router work with Talktalk ?
What kind of router do you recommend to be able to port forward so my cameras work?

Thanks
Steven.

You should discuss this with TalkTalk. They would be able to properly advise you.

Might want to consider a program like logmein or hamachi that will allow you to access your pc remotely with no port forwarding so you can view your cameras.

Cheaper than a new router.

Hi thanks
I spoke to Talktalk and they said that they don't allow it to happen!
Your second answer, does this mean I need to leave my laptop on all the time?

Thanks

Your laptop would need to be on to be accessed and this looks like your only solution besides getting a new ISP.

Ok
I don't have the computer on a lot to be honest.
Can you recommend a good ISP to get?

Thanks

Is the device you received from your ISP a "combination" device. Which is to say, is it a modem, a router, and a wireless access point all in one device?

If it is, you can ask your ISP to provide you with only a modem and you'll provide your own router, in which case yes, you would need to buy a router.

If they won't, then there's nothing anybody can do for you except to do what's already been done.

Just FYI, it's not harmful to your laptop to leave it up and running all the time so I'm not sure what your aversion is to doing so. I have about 6 PC's in my home office and some of them are 10 years old and have been running 24/7 the entire time I've owned them. It's harder on the moving parts (most specifically the hard drive) to shut computers off and turn them on all the time than it is to just leave them running.

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.

if they don't allow it a different router won't make any difference
