It's important to understand how to connect your Swann DVR to your network.
Here's a diagram that shows an example of the DVR physical connections.
As you can see in the diagram, there's a DVR and a laptop connected to a router that gives access to the Internet. You just need to connect the UTP (network) and power cables and do a step-by-step setup.

Swann DVR Network configuration
The first step to connect your Swann DVR to the Internet is to give it an IP address.
The DVR can automatically get an IP address from the router, or you can manually configure it. The first option is the default one.
The picture below shows Swann's DVR network menu.
As you can see, the DHCP is enabled in this DVR.
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, which means your router can give an IP address to the DVR as long as this option is enabled.
