Can't access network camera from internal LAN IP address

After switching internet providers, we can now longer access our IP cameras from an internal computer connected to the same router.
However, we can still successfully ping them internally and we can access them from an external computer via the internet. I'm not quite sure why it's not working. I think it gets stuck in some port forwarding loop because when we turn off port forwarding, we can access them internally again but of course they become unaccessible via the internet.
Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Are the cameras on the same IP segment as the rest of the computers?  It sounds like they are not based on how you describe them working.

I think they are. This is their internal IP addresses:

Router: 192.168.0.1
Computer: 192.168.0.230
Camera 1: 192.168.0.250
Camera 2: 192.168.0.251

Hmmn. Changing the port forwarding should have zero effect on the local network, this should all switch local and not go thru the router. Could the devices be on different internal firewalls?
