Dish network guide not updating

By default, most IP cameras are assigned a temporary IP address by your router.

This is composed of 4 numbers from zero to 255 that are separated by periods that is how you find your camera.

To do this, you will have to go into the configuration screen for your camera and set the option to have a fixed IP address and not use DHCP.

Many times, unchecking DHCP will present you with the necessary fields for an IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS. The easiest place to get this information is to go on a PC that is on the network and open a DOS window (on Windows, press the START button and then type “command” or on a Mac, run Terminal).

Just make sure that you do not use the same number twice, it must be unique and not interfere with the lower number that are used by DHCP, so I would recommend you start at least at an IP address of your PC plus 25.

For DNS, put either the gateway address or 2.2.2.4 as a last resort. A port number is what is used to allow a single IP address to have multiple devices.

The problem with this is that it’s likely that this address will change next time turn off and then back on the router or camera.

STEP 1 There’s several steps into making this work, so it’s best to start at the camera.

The default is typically 80, but if you want to have more than one camera, you need to use a different number.

To avoid port conflicts, it’s better to use a number higher than 8000 but less than 60000.

As an added perk, you’ll get something for the ears.
