Thanks for your patience - and apologies for wasting that ink Smile

Ive read up on UnPnP and have set it up on my OS (win xp).

Within 'my network places' i see my router but alas no camera.

I'm not sure how to search for the camera's ip address. Also tried looking for the server logs within the router menu but couldnt find any. Does windows keep a record of these logs?

Thanks once again.

It may help if we knew what brand of router you had, because what you need to be looking for is DHCP logs, my Dlink DIR-655 shows the current DHCP leases at the bottom of the status page. This is a list of all the devices currently getting an IP address from the router.

I take it the camera is toast then??

One last Q - for future reference how would you go about changing your ip address from say 192.168.0.x to 192.168.1.x??

Thanks all for giving it a good shot.

Is your question about changing the DHCP scope (range of IP addresses) that the router uses, or changing the Camera or your computers address.

For example a camera operates on 192.168.0.x yet my computer (and router DHCP etc) run on 192.168.1.x....

More for future ref - as I'm sure I'm bound to fall down some time or another...

The best way to do this is to temporarily bind a static IP to your computer that is in the same range as the camera. For Example. Lets say the default camera IP is: 192.168.0.35

and your computer is getting an IP address from your router: 192.168.168.10

You would want to go into the TCP/IP properties of the network card and manually assign an IP address in the 0.X range so 192.168.0.20 would work. . .

It would look like this
IP Address: 192.168.0.20
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: <-- Do not worry about this as the static setting is only temporary.

After you set this static IP you should be able to communicate with the camera and either set it up for DHCP or manually assign a static IP address within the same range as your network. If you go the static route with your camera I would recommend binding an IP outside of your routers DHCP scope

Example: If your routers DHCP scope is 192.168.168.2 - 100

Then put the camera(s) on 168.101, 168.102 and so on.

This way your router will not try to hand out an address that is already assigned to a device.

NOTE: Make sure to change your computers IP to automatically assign after you are done configuring the camera.
