Solved using my router with uverse NVG510 router

March 4, 2014 at 18:12:25
Specs: Windows 7, 8g
I just had u-verse installed at my home, and I would like to continue to use my linksys ea4500 router, because it is set up to use my security cameras. I have been trying to get help from att help desk but they do not have a clue. I have found several answers on the web but they discuss using dhcp, but i would like to use a static ip for my router so I can view my cameras from outside of my network.

Thanks for any help

Mike

✔ Best Answer
Click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second Router to your LAN

You will be using "Version 1" wherein you interconnect the two routers "LAN port to LAN port" and statically assign an IP to the LAN side of router2 (the downstream router).

I suspect you already have a port forward configured on the Linksys router to allow external traffic to pass through the router and access the cameras. You will need to copy that on the new router as well.

Thanks Curt,
Will I need to use DDNS for the cameras?
I have a static public ip assigned to the uverse router.

Thanks

Were you already able to connect to your cameras with your Linksys setup?

If yes, you shouldn't need to make any changes. The only thing you'll have to do is ensure you create a port forward on the new router that matches the one on your linksys so connections to the cameras can get through it.

Yes i was able to connect with my linksys without DDNS

Thanks for all your help.

ATT does not need a help desk, they are not knowledgeable of their equipment. Two question posted here has taken me 5 days with ATT and they still could not give me a correct answer.

Thanks

Mike
