I am trying to hardwire my router to my dvr(security cameras). When I plug the Ethernet cable into extra LAN outlets, it lights up red. What can I do connect?
Lights up red on what?
the router? Where on the router? what light?
On the dvr? where/what light? What do the instructions say about hardwiring in the system?
If you hook a computer to the router, does it work?
Or is this "red" more "amber" or "orange" and does show on the LAN/Ethernet port where the DVR or it's camera(s) are plugged? That would indicate ...
