D-Link DCS Network Camera :: 920 Loosing Connection To Router
Oct 13, 2010
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...
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.
We installed a DIR-615 Vers. E1 FV. 5.00NA and since then i-Pods and i-Pads keep dropping wi-fi connections. All wireless PC's and printers are working fine. We have configured the wireless as:Mixed 802.11 n,g and b. Auto channel csan enabled, using channel 6. Wireless security is WPA-Personnal. WPA is configured as Auto, TKIP and AES with a pre-shared key.
Bought a Dir-600 from challenger, used it for 3 months and started expericing the common problems of loosing internet connection highlighted by many users here and in other forums. Would always have to do a modem / router power cycle to get it going again.Slightly after 3 months... the thing went dead. Can power up but no response. Cannot detect the modem.Got a one-for-one exchange at Funan. Used the 2nd one for less than 2 months. It just went dead on me! Same problem...
Ok, so if i open Utorrent and let it download for 10 minutes i loose my internet connection. I usually will disconnect my cat5 cable and plug it back in and it doesn't work so i would open up the CMD line and try to reset the network connection but it doesn't respond so the only way i can reset it is to restart the the computerI've tried reinstalling Utorrent but i still keep loosing my connection, yet all the while I am able to run netflix on my PS3 so my internet connection isn't going down.
Not sure where the best place to drop this question. It is a DIR-601 router. I have it configured in the virtual servers list as; internal system ip, public port/private port both 23, protocal tcp with inbound filter, allow all and schedule set to always. I have a second system with a different public port. I can connect to either one but after a short amount of idle time it appears to just drop the connection.
my linksys e3000 router loses connection quite often. E.G. we lost power last night and i tried resetting the router but it didnt work so I had to uninstall and then reinstall the router. A few other times it would lose connection for no apparent reason.
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.
We are in a hotel that allows us to use their router with a Hawking 300N expander. We seem to lose connection each time their router gets a new IP address. The router seems to lose connection frequently. Is there a setting in the expander that will allow the expander to "follow" the DHCP address of the router without having to take it down and go thru the setup each time.
I have several computers and printers connected to a WRT120N router which is connected to 10mpbs DSL. The computers are all running WIN7 and are hardwired to the router. On the one PC, it keeps losing network connection. I've tried upgrading the router's firmware, reset, etc. to no avail.
I think it may be related to the same IP address being assigned to multiple machines connected to the router. Is there a way to set specific IP addresses to each item connected to the router to see?
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?
I connected my camera to my router with a network cable. It is a DCS-2121, H/W Ver A2, with firmware 1.04_FR.It received an IP address and I could access it fine with a web browser.Then I configured it to work wireless.I disconnected the cable but the camera wasn't accessible.Since I couldn't find it I re-attached it with a network cable, but this didn't work.So I pressed the Reset button to start over again.However, now I cannot get it to work anymore. When I plug in the camera and have it connected with a network cable to the router the status light remains RED.When I plug it in without a network cable the status led remains RED.When I connect it with a network cable to a computer directly, the status led remains RED.I've tried changing the network settings of my router to use 192.168.0.x as range, but it makes no difference. In all cases the status indicator remains RED.
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.
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.
have a HP 6500a All In One Printer in the network with a BERSR41 V3 router. I am using a Imac with this sytem for printing and scanning. For some reason I keep loosing the printer when I try to scan? I have it set to a static IP, and can not ping it, but can access the printer throught the network with the HP Utility. Am I missing something in setup on the router that causes it to keep loosing connection?
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.
My Dlink DCS-930 camera won't work over 3G. It works fine on my home WiFi network. When on 3G it shows the camera, click it, tries to connect but just keep saying connection timeout.
It used to work over 3G fine, nothing has changed to my network. I've rebooted the camera and router numerous times, it has the latest firmware, but still won't work. I'm logged into my dlink account fine. I have an Apple Time Capsule.
I have a camera set up in my kitchen and it works and I can view it in our house, on other computers or my iphone. But I can't view it from my work or anywhere outside our wireless range.It is a DCS-920. I have opened port 80, and checked it with a port checker and it says its open. I have bell as a provider with a 2 wire 2701hg-g modem.I read on here about someone else not having a gateway address or primary DNS. I don't know what to put in there. My camera address is 192.168.2.20.
I recently bought 3 DCS-920 to monitor my home while at the office. However I can't seem to get the damned things to stream video using the dyndns service. I linked my router to the dyndns account and host service. I portforward the ports my cameras are assigned. Up to this point its all good, I can access the cameras and their settings pages while outside. However both the Java and ActiveX options for video streaming do not work. Even within the network, using their raw IPs to view the cameras the videos stream works.But putting in the hostname and port they are assigned brings up the camera page, but no video.I can only assume the ports the video and audio run on are seperate, as when I put one camera's IP in the DMZ host on my router, it works with the DNS. Unforunately I can only do that with 1, and I'd rather not do that at all.
I just installed my new DCS-2121 and enabled upnp to be able to watch the feed from my mobile.While being on vacation I noticed that the feed redirected to some strange Russian site,[URL]Back home now, I noticed that the /m/m/index.html file contains an iframe at the bottom, that redirects there. So someone (not me) has been able to alter the index on the wap site and add that at the end some way or the other.While Googling I found only one reference on a French forum, and other than the lack of newer firmware for the camera no direct reactions to this.I tried with a simple PUT to put the original file back, without the iframe at the bottom, but there I get a 403.
- When can we expect new firmware to fix this HUGE security problem?
- How to restore the original (and yes, I tried a factory reset, but that doesn't restore the html files it seems)
- How did they manage?
It seems from the config db that it's an OEM'ed alphanetworks.com camera with a lot more options that d-link put in there. Any input from them maybe, it seems they are writing the firmware?
I've just got my DCS-2121 up and working. But i can't figureout how to access the direct URL for the camera?And is there a URL for still images aswell?I got an iPad and an iPhone, but i can't access the camera because it use Java.I had another DCS-900 where i could access IMAGE.jpg and Video.cgi. Is there anything like those for the DCS-2121?
I have configured my new DCS-2130 with periodic transfer of snapshots to my web page. filename prefix which is given as input in the MEDIA TYPE setup however gets extended with additional numbers resulting in unique filenames after every transfer. E.g. SNAPSHOT1320703730_3939.jpg where filename prefix is SNAPSHOT. This makes it challenging when an URL contains a reference to the same file name, and the file names changes over time. Which calls for name manipulating through script or similar.
I have a DCS-5220 cam and when I connect to the camera throught internet from a computer in a different city, I have a problem with the plug-in : quicktime plugin is used and impossible to find the plug-in of D'Link.so impossible to zoom or the change the motion detection parameters,.
I have successfully setup the camera at home, that I can use the mydlink website to view. But when I go to work and open my IE to view, it does not connect to the camera. Do I know to do something at the router to make it unblock or some sort?
Any way to schedule a reboot of a DCS2102?I've got 3 of them here, and they are very good but every now and then they seem to stop writing to the storage. They haven't frozen cause I can still connect to them via a browser
I didn't get a reply with this question lost in another thread so I thought I'd try again. As far as I can tell the 2121 has an extremely weak microphone. I can barely here it 'live'.
The biggest problem is that when I record it the the Main Console program I hear nothing on playback. Does anyone have a DCS-2121 camera that records sound properly so it can be heard on playback using the standard D-Link software program?
I work for a company where we just put up a DCS-920. We're an IT company so always at our computers. I have everybody logged into the ip webpage to see who's coming in/out. Any function or similar to a windows gadget that can be made for the camera? So it's basically part of your windows desktop, don't have to open/close it all the time
Im having some problems changing my admin password on my DCS920
I know the default login is Login: admin / Password: "blank"
So I go into maintence, and there's an option to change the password.
old password newpassword confirm
So I leave the old password blank and type in my new password in the following 2 spaces. I click apply and a window pops up asking me to enter username and password. I just enter admin and leave the password blank. I hit ok, and everything seems to update ok. So i log out, and try to log back in.
A window pops up asking me for my password. I type in admin for my username, and my new password, and it wont work
I type leaving the username blank, and type in new password... WONT WORK
I type admin, and new password again.. WONT WORK
I try password with first letter capital.. WONT WORK
I try password with ALL CAPS... WONT WORK..
Basically it wont let me log in as admin anymore. I figure I may have typed the password wrong the first time so I reset the camera and try the process again.. SAME PROBLEM.
Am I doing something wrong in changing my password ?
I dont wanna leave my default admin login as admin/"blank" , but when I try and change the password, it wont let me log in again as admin.
