For a couple of days, we experienced serious problems in our business network. Yesterday we found that it was caused by our two cameras connected by cable, a PVC2300 and WVC2300. When disconnecting the cameras everything went back to normal, plugging them in again, the fault came back. After plugging in, the ping increased rapidly, loosing connection after 10-20 sec. Until unplugging again, the cameras interrupted the whole network.
Still after resetting the PVC2300, I still can’t access it. I was able to connect to the WVC2300 by wireless, but lost connection after minutes. During this time, I managed to update the firmware to 220.127.116.11 from 18.104.22.168, but still no luck.
Before this, the cameras have been running relatively stable for months. Just experienced some cases where the cameras froze, but running fine again after rebooting.
Of a total of six cameras, these where the only ones connected by cable.
step 3. Plug a camera into the network and use wireshark to capture a few seconds of ethernet traffic when you get network congestion.
Step 4. Backup the configuration of the PVC2300 camera that is causing a problem and save it in your next posting.
(I will load it on my camera and check it's configuration, but I am wondering if your cameras as sending out multicast packets, we'll see)
Step 5 Maybe using windows paint program draw out a simple network diagram with IP addresses showing Routers and switches and Access Point in the topology and save it as a JPEG on your next posting.. (This is will folks looking at this post understand your network topology)
