I am trying to set up a Belkin Netcam HD however it is coming up with an error "Network error. Please make sure your network allows connections through port 5104/4104".  How do I open these ports up on my router?  I have an ASUS RT-AC66U router.

As a rule you should not setup inbound port forward any camera really as this could be a security risk.

 

On your specific case, these cameras should be using outbound connections to the a cloud service, so no inbound required.

 

Are you using a third party DNS? Do you have Google DNS blocked by any reason?

 

I've seen some cameras that would try to reach Google DNS first to make sure an Internet connection existed and failing that the camera wouldn't work at all.

You may yon the money as I am using DNS4ME and have the Google DNS blocked. Out of curiosity I might unblock this and see if it works.

I just read Belkin is pulling support for all netcam's on 30th June 2020. They will become worthless after that date even with 3rd party apps.

The only good thing Belkin make is coaxial cable.





Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

If you just bought these cameras maybe the best action is to return them.
