I had WRT54G2 and recently switched to an RV120W. I have an Internet accessible camera system connected to my router. Before, this worked fine... there is a dns service (DynDNS.com) that is configured as part of the camera setup. I would then just enter http://blahblah.com/index.htm and I would connect to the cameras. I install the new router (RV120W) and I can no longer connect to the cameras. I do not recall any configuring that I had to perform on the old router.
Anybody know why the RV120W isn't letting me get to the cameras?
1. Did you access the web interface of the RV120W when you set it up and configure the dyndns settings under Networking->Routing->Dynamic DNS?
Can you ping your DynDNS address from the command prompt?
Also, have you logged into your dyndns account recently to verify that it is active? Not very long ago (probably a month or so), DynDNS started charging a fee for their services, whereas one could have a free account prior to the changes.
2. I know you said you don't remember configuring anything on the WRT54G2 for the camera's remote access, but often we have to set up some port forwarding rules under Firewall-> Port Forwarding in the web interface for remote access to cameras. If you need assistance with this, please feel free to call 1-866-606-1866 and we will be happy to assist. I would suggest contacting the camera manufacturer to see if there are ports that need to be open for your camera system prior to calling in- that will help us tremendously.
Misty, I called tech support, talked with Alena Patterson and she was able to get the cameras working by configuring the port forwarding and creating a custom service. I'm going to play around with it some more, but it appears to be working. Hopefully, I don't break it with any of my experimentation.
