Logging into the RG

 Im having problems logging into my RG. I don't have a password, just a 10 digit key. Here is the message I get.

 

 If you still cannot remember the current system password, you may change it by first entering the unique 10-digit system password printed on the bottom of your unit. After entering the correct key, you must immediately change your existing system password by typing and confirming a new password in the spaces below.

 

 I just set up a tablet (wireless) a few days ago and the Key on the RG worked for that. Trying to connect a security camera wireless, I need to change the setting in the RG to allow it. What am I missing.

There are:  1) the System Password and 2) the Wireless Network Key.  They are not the same thing.

 

Which RG do you have?

redjada- My TG has three numbers - Wireless Key (what you used to set up the tablet) the IP address of the RG, Device access code - What you need to change settings in the RG - the password.

OK, I did find the access #. Ill give it a shot and let you know how it works.

 

 On another note, I am a bit confused on the wireless camera set up. The camera asks for the "shared password" for the router. Im guessing that is the net work key?

 

 Thanks

What kind of camera is it?  Post the name and model number and we can research it on line and help with pointers.

Okay it looks like you first have to plug the camera in using a hardwire connection BEFORE you can set up the wireless portion.  This will allow the RG to assign an IP address, default gateway, etc.  Then follow the instructions here to set up the wireless part.  Although the instructions reference a Belkin router, you can find the same information in the RG and input it in the camera.

If you're talking about accessing your camera when you're away from home, you will need to set up port forwarding for your camera.  You can find port forwarding in the wireless section of your gateway's configuration interface.

sorry the above post should read "you can find port forwarding in the firewall section"

 Thanks Bee, good post but I am missing something.

 

 I think I have most of it. For LAN Im using port 85. You lost me with the data port? Here is the confing for the camera.

 

 IP Address = 192.168.1.60

 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0

 Gateway = 192.168.1.254

 DNS Server = 192.168.1.254

 HTTP Port = 85

 Obtain IP from DHCP server is not checked.

 

 Since I have tried this a couple times. This what I see when getting into the firewall settengs (pin hole)

 

 comphostappYou have chosen unknown0023A2EC71D3
comphostappChoose unknown002374E1B735
comphostappChoose user-PC
comphostappChoose pat--pat
comphostappChoose ipcam_000DC5D567D1
comphostappChoose unknown001310E2EABB
comphostappChoose ipcam_000DC5D567D1_1

 

 I guess what I need to do first im delete a couple of these and just work with one. How do I do that? I defently think I did do something wrong. Next, I dont recall seeing anyhting about a data port. What is that and how do I set it? And what to if Im on 85.

 

 I guess the green check mark needs to be removed from this subject since Im still working on it.

 

 Thanks for your help.

Thanks Joe. I have been using that site. But when it comes to select computer, I have been selecting "my computer" I figured out to inter the IP of the camera. Everything is working now. Thanks for everyone's help.
