    For a long time I used a tablet then a spare android phone as a dedicated viewer for my IP security camera.

    A few days ago after a power outage that also caused broadband to go out I can no not view cameras on any of my android devices.

    I am not sure this is actually android's fault but I have to start somewhere.

    I have tried several devices and several IP Viewer apps to no avail. All tell me cannot connect to the camera.

    The camera is working fine as I can view in web browser on desktop and it is recording in iSpy on a second desktop. All are ethernet connected.

    The camera is hard wired via Ethernet to switch which is plugged into gateway. Always worked fine, nothing changed in that configuration.

    I cannot view over WiFi on android in web browser either even though I can view my gateway login via IP so I know Andriod can see over network via IP...except to the camera.

    Any though on this most appreciated

    Don't rely on me for any real help, but my first thought is that your modem's public facing IP address probably changed when the power cycled.
