Your cameras should work fine if you are using a dynamic IP service.  I have been doing if for many years.  Make sure you have enabled port forwarding in your router.  On second thought, if you are using the Exede WiFi Modem, I am not familiar with that or what is accessible to the user.  But, you need to set it up for the dynamic IP service and port forwarding.

I forgot to mention this but, yes. This is important to. Your DVR will have instructions for this. You need access to the web. http which is port 80 or/and 8080 typically- but not always. and video streaming, most common is UPnP this is most common because it does not make sure that anything adheres to copyright laws, or DMR or really ANY kind of protected setup it is by far the easiest means of invading your privacy. But hey! If its your private home connection that shouldn't be a big deal...Or should it? ;D

I'm having the same problem. Spent 2hrs today with Exede support, no satisfaction. I have PoE cameras connected via a PoE switch, and a wi-fi camera - can't see any of them on my network at all. Any help would be much appreciated.

Are your camera's wireless accessible? Sometimes and especially for security systems the cameras recording to the DVR are remote capable and accessible yes, but the DVR itself is not capable of connecting to the internet with out a wired connection. This means that even if you purchase a wireless USB for the DVR it will still not work. It's a privacy, security feature. A DVR is typically a server of some type or degree. It likes to be able to take control of it's entire network and controlling any sub network, and is typically programmed to do so on its own. Status of importance and control is allocated by which plug you plug it into on the wireless router, it will want to be in spot 1, this is important to a wireless router because it treats the devices plugged in as more important than any of the wifi connections. Also, the server will behave differently depending on if you have a modem and a router verses a all in one, or maybe two routers and you have placed a this server on the second router which places it WITHIN your sub net instead of INCHARGE of your network. However, depending on your personal feelings it can be programmed to behave in an abundant different ways.
