Make a note of the series of numbers listed to the right of 'Default gateway', you will need this later.

Log in to your router. You do this by entering the IP address of the router in the internet browser, in this case that is 192.168.1.1
Go to the router's settings and to the "Forwarding" or "Port Forwarding" page.
At both the 'Internal port' and the 'External port', enter the chosen port number of the camera or recorder. At 'IP address' enter the IP address of the camera or recorder. At 'Protocol' select 'TCP'. Check the 'Enable' box to apply the settings. Click 'Apply' to complete the action.
