Brand new on here and brand new to the awesome world of MikroTik routers!
Basically I have a very simple setup, 1 single channel DVR, 1 IP camera and 1 MikroTik MAP2n small 2 channel wireless router.
My aim is to plug the DVR & the Camera into the small router with cables then access them via the wireless connection.
I can get onto the router no problem via wireless and when i plug the DVR into it, a quick IP scan shows that the router knows the DVR is present. That said, I am unable to browse to it via Chrome, I can only get up the router page. Other than the local wireless connection I wont be logging into this system remotely.
My question is,
1. Do the IP's I choose need to be in the same range as the router? Lets use the default: 192.168.88.1 that's printed on the box. Would I need to set the camera for example 192.168.88.22 and the DVR 192.168.88.15 and the gateway would be 192.168.88.??
2. Do i need to forward any ports because i do not need to access remotely? If I do, how do I know which ones?
3 Is there something other than the above that I am missing?
Thank you in advance, and sorry if it seems a little remedial. I've been trying my best to read up with not much luck
