    I have no problem using vlc to connect to my cameras ( different brand ) using rtsp protocol with Fizz router. I only had to change my IP address in URL accordingly.

    Go check what IP and friendly names they're given on the network. It certainly has changed from your previous network.

    If I plug the cameras directly to de router everything is good even browsers.

    The "DHCP Reservation" is a pain in the a$$... Tried to assign IP's manually and it's a mess.

    I'Will reset modem&cameras and start over if it not I'll use my own router... hassle-free...
