If the above steps don’t work, please follow the steps below:


CONNECT A CABLE FROM your PC (ie. ethernet cable from your PC to your CAMERA PORT (so if you have a 4ch and 4 cameras, you’ll need to unplug 1 cam and plug in there))


Load up SADP – you should see all the IP addresses of the cams listed.


Change the PC subnet / gateway / to match that of the cams. IP should be in the same ‘network’

Network adapter / Right click on active connection / Properties / TCP/IP4 / Properties – change details here.


Enter the IP address of the CAMERA into the browser. If your settings for step3 were correct, you should be able to log in.
