Change your computer's IP address to 192.168.100.xxx (xxx is an integer from 2-254 except 88)
Here is a detailed guide on how to set your computer's IP address to 192.168.100.xxx(xxx is an integer from 2-254 except 88)
If you need to discover the IP address of your computer, you can do so by using command prompt for Windows or Terminal for Macs.
To do this on a PC, you would type “CMD” into your search bar in the Windows menu. You should see a black box pop up with the ability to type in the box. If you type “ipconfig” and hit “Enter” on your keyboard you will see a bunch of information pop up in your command prompt.
On a MAC or Linux computer, type "ifconfig" in the terminal and hit enter.
NOTE:After setting your computer's IP address to 192.168.100.xxx, you may temporarily lose access to Ethernet. But this is only temporary, we will change it back when we finish setting up the camera.
Then use a web browser to access the IP address of the camera (192.168.100.88), and you will be prompted to enter the user name and password. The initial username and password are both admin
After entering the correct username and password, and hit enter key on your keyboard, you will open the camera's WEBUI
In the NETWORK tab of the camera's WebUI, you can change the camera's IP address, subnet mask and gateway. then click “Submit” and restart the camera(turn off then on).
NOTE:It is better to use a fixed IP address, because if you set it to a dynamic IP address, the IP address of the camera will be reassigned every time the camera restarts.
If you want to access both the external network and the camera, you need to change the camera's IP address to the address range allowed by your router.
If you have multiple cameras, please set them one by one, and each camera should be assigned an IP address, which cannot conflict. After the setting is completed, connect them to the network together.
After changing the IP address of the camera, please use the same method to set the IP address of your computer to the original address or enable DHCP.
