My iPad app was working fine and now does not see my static IP DVRs. Has anything changed ?

I just fired up my iPad 2 app, and it took me through the validation steps, so is it possible it wanted a 'Net connection briefly and it wasn't available then?

What message(s) do you get? Try powering off the iPad if no joy on retry.

Also pretty sure there's an existing thread that this might be merged into....

Are you sure your iPad is on your home network, not a neighbors or a 3G signal?

I haven't had any problems with mine especially since your static you should be good to go. I would unplug your router, boxes & shut wi-fi off on ipad. Boot router up first, then boot your irds wait till they are online check to make sure they are connected to the network. Turn wi-fi radio back on and try again, you could also try reinstalling the ipad app will clear out any cache. Good Luck

When connected to your home network go to iPad wifi settings and change your dns address to
