Remote veiwing DVR

I have a Motorola modem/WiFi no router ports connected to DVR/Cameras for remote viewing. Motorola is port forward. Everything is hidden under the floor through an access panel works great but weak WiFi signal. Now= cable > modem/WiFi > DVR > cameras Plan is to use Cisco 4200 router/WiFi as a range extender for WiFi internet access in rear bedroom. Cable > modem/WiFi > Cisco internet port > DVR > cameras. I know I will need two SSID for local WiFI access but will I be able to get to the DVR remotely? I don't want to buy a new modem since I have the Cisco router. I am over 500 miles away and brain storming if I can make this work when I get back.

RE: Connecting T Mobile phone thru Version Jetpack?

Look up the Verizon home phone they can be carried anywhere and used as a land line (voice only). Works anywhere you have Verizon cell phone service even while traveling in vehicle. I use Straight Talk thru Walmart on the Verizon network $15 month no contract.

RE: Inside Security Cameras?

The problem I see with an exposed camera once stolen you are no better off. A notice on the door is no proof you have or had a security camera. When I was searching for a security system I found a lot of cameras embedded in things like a wall clock or picture frame, they have SD cards and are just about impossible to detect the only shortcoming is battery life but in your case this would not be a problem. example; http://www.brickhousesecurity.com/category/hidden+cameras/cctv+hidden+cameras.do

RE: DTV losing some channels??

Does the antenna have a clear view of the sky? If you have trees you need to look at where the dish is pointing then look up another 30 deg. You may be loosing one satellite or just some transponders from one of the satellites.

RE: Atwood Water Heater

You stated you had power to the water heater CB and WH works with direct extension so that leaves only a few options. 1. CB itself is bad.... Swap with another one to test. 2. Wire from CB to WH is open.... Check for continuity from CB to outlet. 3. 120V Outlet is bad....check outlet.

RE: Furnace Ignition Question

May be no help but; I had a similar problem and found it was air in the line. Would work fine if a stove top burner was lit at the same time as lighting the furnace. Only happened 1st few times at beginning of winter use "and" the propane tank had been refilled.

RE: So how do you know if

May be working OK now but it sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere and you will be going through this routine again.

For those using OPEN DNS. Due to Verizon tagging X-UHID you can no longer use Open DNS.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

I have been using a 10's unit forever for back pain and wouldn't leave home without it. It is the size of a deck of cards has 2 channels, uses a 9V battery and works every bit as good as the larger non portable units.

RE: Formaldahyde in Holding Tanks

IMO Bill.Satellite is 100% correct. I started using chemicals but soon discovered they are totally unnecessary and NO my RV does not stink. Your holding tank is not a septic system it is a holding tank to be dumped into a septic system.

RE: Went In For Alignment Now Feel Being Taken For A Ride

Sorry to hear about your experience unfortunately there are some shops that take advantage of people once they find out the customer has limited mechanical knowledge. I agree with rickieblue you don't start an alignment until you check and fix everything that would cause an out of alignment condition. Sounds like you are now on the right track getting another opinion. Best of luck in sorting this out.

RE: Shore Power Only Works When Engine Is On

It has been awhile since I have seen a diagram of the EMS but I think the relays in the EMS work off 12VDC if so it would sound like the house batteries are dead or disconnected and the EMS is getting 12V from the engine running. MrWizard has covered all the basics above.

RE: Motorhome on beach

Not all beaches are created equal. On some the sand is packed and have decent driving trails that take you in and out to a parking area. On most beaches I have visited the soft area like dunes will not support an RV and "you will" get stuck if you attempt to drive on them. Generally the further away from the water the softer the sand. I no longer care to drive on the beach due to the sand getting into everything and damage from salt water over time and several trips on the sand you will have under carriage corrosion.

RE: '15 Ram 3500 brake controller

Sounds like a bad ground connection.

RE: Use of Data?

Problem with leaving it connected when on sites like CNN or any of the news channels or even your e-mail account they continually transmit update eating up your data limit. Best to disconnect.

RE: How can a 12vdc light cut off my A/C unit?

Think about this, a low (bad) battery. The converter is constantly trying to charge the battery you turn on a 12V light and it tasks the converter enough it glitches the 120VAC enough to shut down the AC. Only other thing I can think of is a bad ground in the air conditioner 12V control board and ground is being supplied through the filament of the 12V lamps and when you turn on one of the lamps you lose the ground to the control board. Long shot but it is a weird problem and I hope you post whatever you find.
