Thank you for visiting the How To section for Worldeyecam.com Your one stop shop for all security camera and recording system needs. Here we will review some basics regarding how to find your router’s IP address.
There are two types of IP addresses for most routers. One is used so that devices inside of the network (at your office or home location) can communicate with the router and connect to the internet.
The other IP address is used for the outside world to connect directly to your router. So we can consider one to be an Internal IP address and one to be an external IP address.
Finding your routers internal IP address is the starting point for getting any DVR or NVR system up and running. There are a couple ways that you can determine this.
The first method would be through the Run command. In your start menu on windows you can type in:
Hit enter and then you should pull up the command prompt.
In the command prompt next you will need to type in ipconfig
Here you should see something similar to the picture to the left.
After you hit enter you should see a screen that is similar to what is shown in the photo to the left.. Notice the Red circle, this is where you will see your internal IP address listed on the line “Default Gateway.”
Now this should be the address for your router so that you can configure the port settings to open remote access to your new IMaxCamPro NVR or DVR system.

Note: An IP Address is the internal address of the computer you are on.
