I added 3 new ip cameras

Customer Question

Hello,
I added 3 new ip cameras to my network and I cannot find the cameras on my network.
The cameras are "Dahua IPC-HFW4300S". They're going into my PoE switch, then into my router. I also have 16 cameras that were previously installed. I can see all of them properly.
I am thinking the problem, may be an IP conflict. My router is on a gateway of 192.168.0.1 and the camera's come defaulted to 192.168.1.8
But if I change my router gateway to 192.168.1.1, there's a conflict with the modem, which also uses that gateway, then the router defaults back to the original IP.
Troubleshooting, I unplugged the modem so it couldn't grab that IP address and successfully changed the router gateway to 192.168.1.1, but I still couldn't find the 3 new cameras! On advice on finding them? I am on Mac. Thanks.

Hi Randy,
I am using Safari. I tried the network device finder, but it's not finding anything! I also tried "Ip Scanner Home" which found about 20+ devices, but none are the 3 new cameras.I have 5 relatively new Macs in this house... and NONE of them have cd-rom drives!

I got this figured out. I used a program called "Bonjour Browser" for Mac and it pulled them up. Can you close this out and refund? Thanks.

Did you submit the refund? The only way I can get it on my end is if I give you a bad rating, which I am trying to avoid on your behalf.

Yes, I can do that for you.
