I don't see a router in your picture

The gateway is generally the IP address of the router. It will have an address within the IP range of your other devices and allow your LAN to connect to the WAN. All of your connected devices need an IP address and you either configure these as fixed or let the router handle it. How are you doing this?

i dont know..ryt now i have got the IP address as 192.168.123.104 and the gateway as 192.168.123.254 (same as the 3g modem) but when i ping the DVR using 192.168.123.104 and it says "destination host unreachable"....

Before, i set gateway to some random (192.168.1.100) and ip address (192.168.1.129) and when pinged said "destination net unreachable"????

anyone?
thanks

Sorry I can't check to see why it would do that.

What did you use to set the IP address

on the recorder? Can it be done from the recorder itself or do you need to reach it through a PC? I will presume you send the ping from a PC on the LAN, that will have to be within the same network range or you'll get the error you mentioned. That message means there was no route to that address.

yes on the recorder...and you can set all IP info on the recorder it self..and i do ping through a PC..when i connect to it directly with my laptop i configure the TCP/IP settings of the connection manually...so i match the gateways from the recorder to the connection and set different IP's..connects fine? just not on the home network?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
