D-Link DCS-942L :: Cisco EA2700 Can't See Camera Without Connection With UPNP?
Feb 11, 2013
In my Ipad (I have Dlink+), I can only see 1 minute of the Cameria 942L...the faq says that I need a conection witn Upnp.I have a Cisco EA2700 and I check the box of Upnp,,but I still cant see my camera from more than a minute,, then I have to reload.
I just purchased 2 cameras and have one set up. Firmware V 1.12
Works great on my android phone and connects fairly quick. When I try to see the camera image on my PC with windows 7 64 bit, I log into my d-link and it shows the camera name on left side of screen, then says Java run time environment not installed.I uninstalled java 5 times and re installed both 32 and 64 bit but keeps coming back as not installed. Camera is set up wirelessly through a Belkin router, so far no EZ config
I have a new apple airport extreme wireless router and have done all the port forwarding and gave the camera a static address and cannot view my camera outside my network. I also have done the dyndns service also. I will note if I change the http port in the camera settings to say 82 I get a black screen and cannot view my camera till I switch back to port 80. Reason why I want to do this is I need to view my camera for more then 60 seconds.
i bought wireless camera dcs942l everything works but my sd card 32 gb is not recording the camera is not recording in my sd card i formated sd card still not recording camera works good quality picture network working but not recording on my sd card and i can not record in my computer
Has anybody gotten the FTP option to work with this camera? And if so how did you set up the path to point to the ftp share. The instructions say one thing but that one thing doesn't work. FTP is setup locally on my NAS box which does work. Or is this another one to add to the Firmware which list?
Months ago i can enter in the camera interface by using 192.168.1.100 , its correct ip to enter in the cammera ? Now i dont know what is happening i connect the ethernet cable correctly from PC to the camera and i type in the browser : 192.168.1.100 but nothiung happen ?
I can access my DCS cameras directly using several iPhone apps such as IP Cam Viewer Pro. Is it possible to access the camera directly using a web browser (I have tried without success) e.g. do you need to use a specific port?Also, the DCS-942L has RTSP. I am not clear as to the difference between RTSP and HTTP streaming of video, any resource that clarifies with respect to D-Link cameras?
It didn't fill it up completely, it stopped at the 200 meg free mark, however I have cyclic checked (which btw is not mentioned anywhere in the manual). I assumed this option would cycle by deleting the oldest file to continue recording.
Just got this & set it up today. Wanted to buy a couple more in the next few days; but wanted to test out the D-Viewcam service. The application (D-Viewcam) is not able to find my camera.I have 'ticked' the uPNP & the forward; tried to disable it as well. No luck.
Camera 942l is on ver 1.1 D-Viewcam = v 3.2 Both reside on the same LAN
I'm able to view the camera on the browser. And on my phone.
I installed my first IP camera. Things seem to have went ok with the installation andd router. I can view the video live from mydlink.com.I've tried the dlink software, but it can't find the camera so I can control recording options, ftp, etc. i've also tried 3rd party software that can't find my camera.I'm fairly internet savvy, but do not have access to my router admin atm. (cable company installed their own) My home ip address is supposed to be dynamic. I thought that would cause me problems viewing from mydlink.com, but it hasn't so far.
I have four DCS-942L cameras and a 2012 model Airport Express router. I cannot view live video from outside the router in any fashion other than mydlink.com's poor quality time-limited forwarded video. Here is what I have done.I have manually mapped four TCP ports through the router for accessing the cameras' web servers. This works--I can access the camera settings that way, albeit with NO SSL support (dammit). So, fundamentally, port forwarding works on this router. The "live view" accessed through the camera's web server does not work, though.I mapped port 554 on each camera to ports on the WAN side of my router, TCP and UDP.I have made sure that the external ports set on the camera under "Enable UPNP port forwarding" are the same as the external ports set on my router. (Otherwise the web server wouldn't work from outside.)When I access the mydlink web site from inside the LAN, I can view my video. When I run netstat -n -p tcp, I can see connections open to the local 192.168.0.* addresses of my cameras, so it is connecting via the LAN.If I connect to the Internet outside my LAN, and use the mydlink web site, I get the forwarded, mini-sized video with a 60 second limit. netstat reveals that connections are being attempted to the INTERNAL ip addresses of my cameras, which of course cannot succeed from outside. In addition, if I try to stream video using QuickTime Player from outside, using the URL [URL], the player connects, then says "waiting for stream" and then "switching transports." It gets stuck there and does not proceed. On the LAN, using the local IP address, I can stream video just fine.
Any way to change this?What other ports do I need to open to make the video stream work? I tried mapping ports 5556-5559 to one of my cameras, but that did not work. Also, I have four cameras and need to be able to map to all of them for this to work.The AirPort Express supports "NAT Port Mapping Protocol" which, from my limited research, is not the same as UPNP. How to successfully viewed video from outside a router without using UPNP?I have scoured these forums considerably and have read some success stories using UPNP. From the DCS-942L manual, it seems like I should be able to set up manual port forwarding in some fashion to make the video stream work. Clearly, though, some auxiliary connection is being attempted and the client cannot get through to the camera. Is it possible to even pick this statically, or is the port always dynamically chosen by the camera and therefore absolutely must be set up on the router using UPNP? If I can't make static port forwarding work, then these cameras are headed to camera heaven soon.
I seem to be struggling to connect more than 4 cameras to my (ISP-supplied) modem/router by Netgear CGD24N via WPS. I'm on my 5th camera now (already have 3x 930L and 1x 942L) but the newest 942L just won't connect to the network at the moment and there's definitely no faults here as I swapped cameras today at the local retailer (and got an A3 942L!).I've even tried connecting the camera to my wireless extender (Netgear WN3000RP) but no luck there.
So far it has only worked twice for short periods of time (enough for me to configure the cameras) but since then I can't actually get it working. I've got a couple of spare wireless routers lying around too and should be receiving a DIR-600 soon (from the Netgear promotion in Australia) which could be useful?

It seems there is a bug with TL-WDR3600. As it can be seen in the following image, the UPnP is off:But my firewall on the computer is reporting flood of packets originating from the router (it's the routers MAC address and IP address):I don't know what ETH type packet is, 0026 might be hex (38 decimal as seen in the raw log). But port 1900 is definitely UPnP.At the router, the wireless switch is off, as well as all other options for sharing etc. This computer is the only one connected to the router. The router has been reset several times.
I have my 942L set up for continuous recording. When I look at the files, the camera will record between 20 and 55 seconds, end that file and start another. The next file then starts between a few seconds and as much as 40 seconds later leaving a gap in the video recoding. The file sizes are all different and the amount of record time is different for each file.
Also, about 80% of the time, the time increments a few seconds on a playback and then stops updating even though the video is longer.
I am wanting to access my IP camera over the Internet. I am not a computer wiz by any stretch and after a couple of failed attempts. My ISP is Comcast and they say that I have dynamic dns and should have no issues viewing my cameras. I know how to get to the port forwarding area of the router but am confused as to which ports to forward. The set up instructions for the camera (Airsight) suck. Screen shots of the set up don't match the actual router
I just got the camera today, looks good, works good, at least so far.. BUT I was SURE this camera had a battery and charge function!? What's the point of having this camera if I can't place it say inside my car or in the garage (where it needs to be hidden, alas I can't use any cords!)?
I have just purchased a DCS 2121 (I assume that it is a similar model to the DCS 920 in US).I have this setup:
- Connected the DCS 2121 wireless to my Belkin Router with a fixed IP address. Firmware version 1.4 is installed on the camera.
- I have a Synology 209 NAS server with surveillance station that I have connected to the Camera.
I all works fine for 5 minutes to a couple of hours at which point the DCS 2121 loose connection to the Router and does not try to reconnect. If I turn the Cam on and off it will reconnect - and then loose connection again af a short time.This is totally frustrating since the purpose of the Cam is to work as a surveillance cam - it kinda loose its value by not being connected...
Or, does the data only go over the WAN connection when the camera is accessed via myDlink? I ask because I have this camera installed in my mountain home and the WAN connection is a 5GB/month Verizon USB modem. It seems to be chewing up a LOT of data.
I asked a question recently about accessing camera via a smartphone but I realize that's not really the correct question. The smartphone works fine locally with wifi and has a browser available.
The real question I have is what is the easiest way to access any camera via a browser from a remote location. Years ago tech friend assisted me access my DCS-910 using dyndns.org. It was free and worked great. I guess it went away when they started charging for a basic account.
Is there an easy way to access a camera without using dyndns even if it involves putting in an IP address instead of a convenient domain name? I would just like to see at least one of my cameras in a browser off-site. If I have to pay $20/year for dyndns I can but I would prefer not to if possible.
I installed my camera a week ago and have since noticed every 15 minutes (only while the camera is plugged in) or so I would lose my internet connection. A message comes up at the bottom of my screen that says 'local area connection. A network cable is unplugged'. It takes 15-20 seconds for the connection to be re-established.
I called my ISP and asked if there were any settings on my router I needed to change since the camera install but they told me 'no' and I should contact tech support for the camera.
I'm having trouble with one of my DCS-930L cameras. I have successfully installed it and it's connected wirelessly to a Dovado router. However, after some 2 weeks the wireless connection drops and I can't connect to the camera anymore. As the camera is 350 km away I can't restart it. This happens everytime and the last time I was around the camera and indeed the camera LED was green. I restarted it by pulling the powercord and after that the camera worked for som 2-3 weeks and then the same problem again.I have 4 cameras, and it's always the same one that drops the connection and the router is only some 5 meters away from the camera. No walls between the router and the camera. I have the ability to restart the router with an sms, but that doesn't make the camera reconnect.
UPnP seems to be failing somewhere between a few hours and a few days. It will work as expected for a while after starting or restarting the router, but then trying to create any new UPnP mappings will fail, and the ones that have been already created usually stop working. The commandline client upnpc fails to locate the router automatically, and manually navigating to http://192.168.0.1:65530/rootDesc.xml in Chrome returns a connection reset error instead of the expected XML device description.I turned on debug messages in the logs, but there doesn't seem to be anything useful in there (though they also seem to be flooded with a bunch of IPv6 mDNS network hopping, so I'm going to try disabling that for a while and see if that works). I did update to 2.10 and still had the same issue with UPnP, however my wireless network kept going down (I guess a known issue) so I downgraded back to 2.07. After the downgrade, I reset the router and manually re-entered all my settings (i.e. I didn't import them).
I just bought Air Video for the ipad, It needs support for the UPnP or NAT-PMP protocols, so does the wireless n do set this up automatically or do you have to manually configure the router, and if so how.
I have a DCS-930L network camera that I configured from its Web-based interface. In SETUP | Network Setup, I have disabled both UPnP and UPnP Port Forwarding. In my router's (Netgear WNDR3700) settings, I reserved the local IP address, 192.168.1.80, for the DCS-930L. In the DCS-930L I assigned the network camera HTTP Port 8000; therefore, I can access the DCS-930L on the LAN from [url].... In addition, in the router, I have forwarded port 8000 to the local IP address, 192.168.1.80, so I can access the DCS-930L from outside the LAN.I can access the DCS-930L both from within the LAN and outside of the LAN.
However, even though UPnP and UPnP Port Forwarding in the DCS-930L are disabled, the DCS-930L keeps adding and deleting UPnP NAT rules in the router. In addition, a system at the IP address, 126.96.36.199, keeps attempting to access the DCS-930L from different ports. I traced the IP address, 188.8.131.52, to the ISP, Telekenex, in Los Angeles, California. A partial log from the router is below.[code]...
My Dlink DIR-655 is hardware ver B1 and firmware 2.00. I found the UPNP cannot cross between wired and wireless network. It is fine if both UPnP server and renderor are on either network. There is no problem on other protocol, such as SAMBA from my notebook connected via Wireless to the QNAP NAS connected via Wired to the 655.

I'm having a problem as my PS3 keeps showing up as UPnP not available even though it is turned on in the router menu. What can be the cause? I want to say there is something wrong with the PS3 and not the router.
I recently upgraded from Linksys WRT54G to D-Link DIR-655 firmware version 2.0. All the features are working as advertised however i am having difficulties accessing UPnP services in my network. I have a Samsung 55" internet enabled TV connected to the router and also have few devices that can stream over UPnP to the TV. The option to enable the UPnP is enabled in the router configuration however its not finding devices in the network ... comparing that with Linksys ... all i had to do is enable the UPnP and all my devices discovered each other and started streaming without any issue. What do i need to do in D-Link to enable the UPnP devices ...

Why am I unable to "disable" the UPnP in my TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND wireless router? When I click on the "disable" button nothing changes. I click on the "disable" button that then click of "refresh" and it still doesn't change to disabled.
The company has a glitch that they are not sure if they will fix so you can't record with mac. I am unable to return my cameras to staples and Im out the money for the memory cards I opened. It says you can record with MAC clearly on the box!!!! Bad business practice for STAPLES and DLINK.
