connect NVR attached router to WAN router

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I installed an 8 camera IP system at a clients office building. Currently it is set up as a fully closed network, with its own router that is not connected to the internet, or to the office's network.


Client requests Remote viewing for cameras, and I know that I will have to connect the camera system's router to their office router, which has internet access.


Can someone give me a step by step guide on how to do this?


Lets say that Router 1 is the office router, and Router 2 is the camera router.

- Router 2 connects to Router 1 via ethernet from LAN port on router 1 to LAN port on router 2.

- Sign up for DDNS for Router 1 (ISP provides dynamic IPs, not sure of refresh and renewal schedule)


Then do I assign router 2 an IP address on the same subnet as Router 1?


Currently I have Router 2 and all cameras connected to it on static IPS, on 192.168.1.xxx addressing scheme.


I really dont want to mess up their network at all, so the easiest and fastet way to do it is probably the best way for this install.

Hi. How have you connected to 8 port router ?



Before you do anything about DDNS first you need to talk to your customer.


Work with there IT people


But I would change router 2 with a switch

6 cameras are connected through Ubiquiti Nanostations. I only have one connection into router from cameras, and then to NVR through LAN ports on router.


I dont think I can use a switch because of using wireless over AP.
