I have an IP camera here that we lost the password for.... so I hit the reset pin on the back of the camera.
Now I cant find the camera on the network :)

Whats the easiest way of determining a devices IP address ? I was hoping it would jsut use DHCP and connect happily to our network but it hasnt (checked via LANScanner).

No manuals available for this sucker either which is even more frustrating.

Hi..
LAN scanners do work for one IP Class...You have to define its range. It seems Ip camera IP address is different from your network IP pool...you have to try public IP's usually given to these devices...or change the IP of your LAN scanner machine and scan new given class...

You dont have the manual for the camera?
If not, try doing a google search for <model number of camera> manual  and you might strike it lucky
and find a manual online, which should in theory contain the default IP address details.

Did the camera come with a utility to scan the LAN? All the IP cams I have seen did . . .

No manual available even online as it seems to be an OEM item.... comes up as multiple different names and none of the companies  seem to operate anymore.

And no software available either. Im trying to use some software with it but need the IP of the camera first.

Try following IP ranges

192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254 or 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 As these are the most common public IP pools used by devices...

Which LAN scanner you are using? Look@LAN is easy to use...give it a try...

Can you provide the model number etc of the unit?

You may also be able to use wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org) to do a packet capture, then look for any ip addresses that look outside of your normal numbers.
