The wired connection to my KBVision recorder (192.168.1.150) died. Rewiring is a nightmare I am trying to avoid at the moment. So I decide to go with a repeater bridge setup. The main router is a TP-Link TL-WDR4300 set up as an Access Point using DD-WRT (G-only mode). The repeater bridge router is a Linksys WRT54G (G-only mode). The wired connection from the repeater bridge is confirmed to work, though it can be slow to go online after plugging in. I then connect the KBVision recorder to a repeater bridge's LAN port. The lights are up. However, there are issues:
- I do not see the KBVision recorder show up when using Advanced IP Scanner (192.168.1.150). Pinging that address from command prompt does work.
- I manage to connect to the KBVision recorder only once. Then, it no longer shows up in the KBVision desktop application.
What could be the cause for this? I am not a network engineer, so my knowledge in this space is hitting a wall. Any help is appreciated.
