Why am I getting a camera boot error?

Errors in booting cameras can be caused by a number of problems.  Most are solved by following these three (3) steps:

  1. Set static IP (
  2. DISABLE the wireless card
  3. Turn OFF the Firewall (and any Anti-virus software)

If the issue still persists:

Replace the Ethernet cables one at a time to eliminate the possibility of a bad cable or a bad connection.

If you’re using a multi-port switch, try different connection ports in case there is a loose connection or bad contact.

If this still does not resolve the booting error, then please contact technical support.
