If some can please help me. I've been working on this for several days and I'm a noob. ;)

I'm trying to setup CCTV DVR Security Cameras in my camp. I am getting wireless from my

relative's camp next door with an Alfa wireless usb adapter AWUSO36H connected to a Alfa

router/Repeater R36, using this as a hotspot for my camp..  The relative's camp has a Time

Warner Cable Ubee Modem/Router.
I am getting internet with no issues but I can't access the Network DVR. I did go to

http://www.canyouseeme.org/ and all my ports are open. ex (ports 80, 34599,10000)

So If I understand this correctly You are able to access the Camera's or DVR in your camp with the DVR at 192.168.2.100 and your laptop at 192.168.2.105.

Both Camps use the Timewarner Router as its Internet access Yes/No? When your on the Other camps network 192.168.0.XXX you can't access your DVR or camera Correct? How are you accessing the DVR via hostname or ip address and port number?

Yes both camps use the Timewarner Router for internet access. Not sure if you mean directly or not. I have a hotspot setup in my camp on the 2nd router (R36) which extendes the internet from the other camps router (192.168.0.xxx)Time warner.

You are able to access the Camera's or DVR in your camp with the DVR at 192.168.2.100 and your laptop at 192.168.2.105.

I'm going to try to answer your questions as best I can. If I miss anything let me know.

That is the problem I can't access the DVR from with in my network the 192.168.2.xxx or from the internet (outside both networks, different city).   I was able to access my DVR the first time I setup the network but I had all my pc's, 2nd router, and the DVR in the same network, the 192.168.0.xxx. But I read in a forum that to access the DVR from the internet (outside my network) I had to put the 2nd router in a different network so I would be able to port forward from the 192.168.0.xxx modem/router to the Alfa R36 router/repeater.

I have not tried to access the DVR from the other camp (192.168.0.xxx). I have to wait for my cousin to be there for me to try that. I did however attempt to acces the DVR from outside both of the networks, (different city) with no luck

try this on the repeater/router in your camp (where the camera's are) turn off port forwarding try and access the dvr via ip adresss using your laptop on your network. First try and ping 192.168.2.100 if you can ping the dvr try and access it. Are you using an application to view the dvr (provided by the manufacture) or a web browser using the ip address and port number? If you cant access it from inside your own network (same network address IE 192.168.2.xxx) you wont be able to access it anywhere else.

How are you accessing the DVR via hostname or ip address and port number?

 

I tried accesing the DVR from with my network and outside the network with verious methods. I have a DNS setup also. So I tried the DNS name and the ip directly with all 3 ports. (80:34599:10000)

I also found out that the DVR IP needs to be out of the 2nd router DHCP server so I changed the DVR IP to 192.168.2.3

Thank you so much for your help..

I will do all your steps as soon as I go to camp again. I'm not there now, but please give me as much advice as you can and I will follow through all your steps.

I did try both. I was using a web browser with ip address and port number, and when that didn't work i used a couple applications on my Ipad. I did ping the DVR and i was getting 100% lost packets.

Yes get rid of DHCP on both routers (in regards to the DVR).   Are you saying that you are not even able to view the CCTV from the same location?
