I have a Lorex hard wired IP camera that I am connecting to my Linksys WRV200 router. It is a PoE (power over ethernet) camera. I have connected a PoE injector between the router and the camera but it does not show up on my lan network. It seems like the router is not assigning an ip to the camera. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Connect the camera/injector to your PC. The camera should have a default IP address that it uses when it cannot find a DHCP server. Give your PC a static IP address in the same subnet and connect to the camera. Give the camera a new static IP address in the same subnet as the router and then connect it. It should now "talk" to the router. If you cannot reach the camer with your PC, then you know that the issue is with the camera/injector.
Please reply if you have any questions and keep us updated.
