Strange IP assignment from D7000 DHCP

Hi, I just connected  an indoor security camera to my D7000 via ethernet cable and it has assigned an IP address of 192.168.2.106.

My DHCP range is set at 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.150

The camera does not recognise it is connected to the router albeit its MAC address appears in the connect devices list.

Any idea anyone?

You might get more informed responses if you told people what these cameras are.

 

Just another user.

   Not a very detailed description of anything.

   Firmware version?  To a LAN Ethernet port?

   How, exactly, did you determine that?

   One easy explanation of that mismatch would be that you have another
DHCP server, and the "an indoor security camera" is getting its address
from that, not from the D7000.  How many routers do you have?

   What, exactly, does "does not recognise" mean to you?  As usuai,
showing actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.  What, exactly, "appears in the connect devices list"?
Copy+paste is your friend.

   Swell.  I'm sure that that detailed explanation will help the next
poor fellow whose search leads him to this thread.
