Customer Question
New cable so new...

New cable so new router. My Lorex LH030 Wireless cameras will not work, tried everything. The router picked up everything, pcs, tables,etc. but will not pick the cameras. What should I do? Could it be the new router blocking?

Technician's Assistant: Are you able to connect using an ethernet cable?

We have an internet cable from the lorex DVR to the new router

Technician's Assistant: Which lights are colored and/or blinking on your router?

Top 5 are blinking

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your network question.

It could be the router blocking off the cameras, in fact. Those cameras, being IP cameras, may need a port forwarded in the router, to enable software 'listening' and communicating on a certain port, to 'hear' the cameras as present and transmitting.

(For details, please tell me, what software would you be using to communicate with, or monitor, the cameras?)
