Question by HSstudent: What is the function of USB input in my wireless modem?
Hello,

I just got my wireless modem (with router) so I can connect other wireless devices very easily. The question is why there is usb? I’m not sure what to use it for? 3G or what?

My modem is Cisco dpc38235

Best answer:

Answer by JohnAdriaan
The USB port is so that you can add storage, like a flash drive or USB hard disk, and share that storage to all the computers that are connected to the wireless.

    If youre looking for hi tech crystal clear images and detailed images, move on. If you just want a basic, easy to install CCTV system this is great. Its as easy as mount the cameras with 3 screws, plug the cameras into the cables, run the wires to the unit and plug them in. Its easier than the average surround sound system.

    the night vision is OK, works well in darkness up to about 10 feet; the images are black & white though. The overall image quality is OK, if someone is within about 15 feet the image is clear enough to recognize a stranger by the photo. Past 30 feet you’d have a hard time distingushing between Jessica Simpson and Hillary Clinton. When you attempt to ‘zoom’ the image it gets very grainy, so forget that idea. The field of view is fairly narrow, so if you are using it in a small space (10×10 room) the view is limited.

    Overall, its a breeze to put in and use, just dont expect the best image quality. if youre a small business or a homeowner, its fine though.

    UPDATE 2/13: here we are less then 18 months later and the system is not working properly. First, one camera developed issues with the image and rolling lines. Then a second camera did the same thing. Now the images freeze on the screen every few minutes for 30-45 seconds and it stops recording while this happens. I tried to contact Zmoto with no luck. For being less then 18 months old and only used inside a climate controlled store, I am disappointed. Pass and pick another better quality setup.

    This review is from: Zmodo PKD-DK4216-500GB H.264 Internet & 3G Phone Accessible 4-Channel DVR with 4 Night Vision Cameras and 500 GB HD (Electronics)

    Do your research. I’ve seen a lot of bad reviews for Zmodo DVR’s on other websites from people that don’t know anything about CCTV IR based camera systems…

    I own 2 of these DVR systems, in my experience they are the best. For years I struggled with PCI based DVR solutions, (SAMS club specials to) they ALL SUCK. The software for all PCI based cards is the same Chinese garbage. No support, no updates, short operational life.

    Out of the box the Zmodo systems work very well and without hassle. Couple of points to this…

    #1 Camera quality, for the price you can’t expect the best. The most important feature here is the DVR and these are worth the price (- cameras). These don’t have much range, they are too small you really need to tailor cameras to your environment. Buy a larger one for distance visibility at night. Do your research. You can’t expect these to see a license plate 15″ away.

    #2 To improve image quality use coax and not the dual cables provided. Lot of quality loss in these but it isn’t practical for companies to sell these with large coax bundles shipping would eat you.

    Only complaint I have is the manual is bad engrish.

    Regarding the actual DVR, it’s fairly easy to use, the interface isn’t the best but it is better than other systems. The IE software is like all IE software, its buggy. This one isn’t compatible with mac but you can use vMEye on your iPhone to view it remotely. There are other options for Mac, I don’t ding the DVR for bad third party integration. DVR should be standalone and work on its own anyway. The newer model is mac compatible. As for upgrades, there are non, but its pretty rock solid as is. Would be nice to be able to shell into it to play with the linux build on it. Again I wouldn’t ding this product for the lack of upgrades when you compare it to the rest of the low end DVR market.

    Lastly support. I had some issues with the last one I ordered missing parts and having a mixing issue (maybe woot issue). The support was very surprising. I hadn’t needed it before. Make sure you call the US support, don’t email or use web chat it goes to China.

    For the price paid…..THIS UNIT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!, March 18, 2012

    This system packs a massive load of value for the price paid. If you’re looking for a basic camera system with decent camera images, then this is what you’re looking for. By no means is it a commercial level feature packed system that can produce “High Definition Images”. It cannot see fine detail, but produces usable images to see mischef around your property or business. For example, if you want to know which neighbor is messing with your car or who’s dog took a crap on your lawn, you can probably identify someone you’ve seen before. The closer you can get a subject to these cameras the more detail you can see.
    INITIAL IMPRESSIONS:
    The DVR looked exactly as I intended. It was a good size and included a Western Digital 500GB Green Drive with a very recent manufacturing date. The cameras were smaller than I thought. No problem with that. All metal construction. Looked perfect for my installation. Everything was packed well in China!!
    INSTALLATION:
    I had already wired up my house with Siamese RG59/power cabling. I used no crimp BNC connectors and cut off the power plugs that were on the supplied bundles of camera cables. I spliced the plugs to the power cabling at the camera end and DVR. (Note: I used crimp caps with a little corrosion compound for the connections outside) If you’re going to do this make sure you dont damage the conductors while stripping. Use the proper strippers and crimpers!! The supplied power wire is very delicate (looked like 30awg wire). I mounted the cameras on the underside of my roof soffits. I won’t get into much detail on that. Every application is different. I can say the supplied brackets worked out well. I had to mess with the cheap ball socket to get the camera to hold the position I wanted. I’ll try to post a picture of how I mounted them.
    POWER UP:
    I had everything connected including an old CRT monitor I had laying around. Everything worked and I was up and running with images on my screen. I adjusted all the cameras. A lot of back and forth, up and down. I got a workout. I started clicking around the menus. I’ve never used any other CCTV DVR before but I found no problems figuring out the menus. The included instructions were not that great. I just used them for reference. If you struggle with any type of menu system, you’re probably have difficulty. I use all different types of menu structures for the type of work I do so I didn’t have any trouble. I found it very intuitive.
    NETWORK SETUP:
    I am not a network setup expert. If you know nothing about networks, have someone else set it up for you. The instructions are not very good for someone who doesn’t know what an IP address is. Once I figured out what IP address my router gave to the DVR I was up and running on another networked PC in my home. It did take a little tweaking of the settings within Internet Explorer to get it to work. Make sure it prompts you for unsigned Active X. The Zmodo website has information on this. There are also videos on youtube on this subject. For some reason, it only works on IE. I can’t get access on Firefox, Opera, or any wireless device in my home. I need to consult with someone else on that. My router also opened up the ports I needed automatically because it had that feature. There is a setting in the DVR that you need to enable for that to work. I did get remote access on my Android phone with the IP Cam app. You need to know what INTERNET IP address you are by going to whatismyip or log into your router. Because I don’t have a static IP, I need to use the DNS Service suggested in the information supplied. I won’t go into this. It’s too complicated and like I said, I’m not an expert. I can figure it out but can’t explain it very well. I know it will work once I get it all set up.
    OTHER COMMENTS:
    I setup basic stuff like time/date, recording, motion, without issue. It may take a little messing with different settings to figure out how it all works. I’m very happy with the features of this DVR. I like how you can search for specific camera recording with motion marks. This way you don’t need to watch hours of video. You can go right to where it saw motion. You can fast forward or manually go back. I’ve read other reviews of comparable DVR’s in which you can’t do that. A definite plus!! I’m still discovering other features the more I mess with it. Overall, I’m very happy with my purchase. Amazon currently has the best price. It was delivered without issue as usual.
    ***If you’re not interested in remote access or home network access, this system will still work great. You can view everything from a monitor connected to the DVR and use the included laser mouse. You’ll be up and running and love it!!
    I hope this in depth review helps others decide what system to buy.

  4. It is made to be used for one of two things. The first is wireless printing. You can plug a printer into it to print wirelessly. The second is network storage. This means that you could purchase a network-attached storage device to the routr to save and access files from any computer on the network.

  5. I have seen it used for software updates that you download to your PC first- ATB
