Can't connect on home WiFi

Postby chewy4000 » Sun Aug 12, 2018 12:17 pm

I had it working for a while in network wifi and away from home data.'
I had to re install apk and now only outside home network it works. If im home on same wifi network it does not work.
I had the widget working great at home for a quick look, now it doesn't work.
Wondering what settings are different now.

Thnx in advance

Most routers will recognize that a WAN IP (or a hostname) is actually your own and then redirect traffic back into the internal network.
This is called NAT LOOPBACK, and allows you to enter one address for access both from inside and outside your network.

1. reboot router (that function might have hung)
2. check router settings to ensure NAT LOOPBACK is enabled (also try turning off NAT acceleration)

3. if all fails, get new router, or create 2 sets of cameras and use the grouping function to switch between them.

I recommend routers with DD-WRT. Some Buffalo routers comes with DD-WRT installed (see below):

ps. here's a list of routers supporting nat loopback
