here is something that is pissing me off. when i first made this thread, i was able to access the camera system on site over the internet, which tells me that i port forwarded the ports properly.
i had to create user defined ports and assign them to the computer. again, it was working because i was viewing them from an off site location.
was working friday, saturday, sunday...sunday night. tried this morning, nothing is working.
i have log me in access to the camera computer. i confirmed the router still has the proper ports opened. computer firewall is off (windows xp), PC still has the same static IP address.
this is funny, it just stopped working. i am wondering if a reboot of the modem/router will fix it, but i cant do that from where i am at. i might invest in a power adapter that i can control over the internet so i can power cycle the equipment whenever i want.

very strange. i have been running a ping -t command on the WAN IP.
6402 packets sent
6365 packets received
normally i dont see a loss of more than 1-5, even though it shows 0% loss, something doesnt seem right, i wonder it AT&T is working on something?
edit- i called someone on site who has access to the room where the dsl equipment is in and asked them to power cycle the DSL modem/router. after that, everything that i couldn't be accessed remotely started working. nothing wrong with power cycling, but it hasnt been a week yet, so i hope this isnt normal.
another reason to buy that internet ready power outlet box.
