On this page you will need to change the setting to Use static IP Address.

In the fields Enter the information you wrote down with one change.

For IP address change the last digits up by roughly 50 numbers. (In the example above I used even though my computer was at because I knew was an open IP address)

--Make sure the Enable internal DHCP server after connecting to Wireless AP is unchecked--

Select Apply and allow the adapter to reboot.


Step 3

Disconnect the adapter from the computer and connect it to the DVR. (Make sure to reconnect the computer to your network)

Go into the settings menu on the DVR and go to the network page.
