What is double NAT? Basically double NAT happens when having 2 or more devices on your network (router or gateway) with NAT (Network Address Translation). When this happens traffic coming from the Internet may not properly reach devices inside the 2nd router thus causing gaming issues or problems with some applications and software programs. The most common scenario is when your Internet provider supplies you with a modem/router combo, and then you purchase a router and add it to your network.

How do I know if I have double NAT and how do I fix it?

There are a few ways to fix this:

1. Make sure your modem/router is it Bridge mode. A lot of modems supplied by your ISP may be a router combo. Most will have an option to put into Bridge mode (turn off NAT). Consult the manual for your modem/router or contact your ISP.

2. See if your secondary router supports Access Point (AP) mode. This will turn off NAT/router functions and act as a switch (for Ethernet devices) and access point (for WI-FI devices). The modem/router from your ISP will handle the router functionality.

3. Enable DMZ in your modem/router combo. This will open and forward all ports to your secondary router.

4. Bypass the WAN/Internet port on the secondary router and connect the modem/router to a LAN port. You will need to turn off DHCP on the router and statically assign the LAN/Local IP address of the secondary router to an IP on the same subnet at the modem/router.

If you have your camera pointing outside form a window or if you have a room with large amounts of light (direct sun light)  you may have noticed the Live view window will display a white image or maybe a silhouette of some items  in front of the screen, This is caused by the frequency setting allowing too much light.

The following D-Link cameras offer a PIR sensor for Motion Detection:

  • DCS-942L
  • DCS-2132L
  • DCS-2310L
  • DCS-5222L

PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor): Motion is detected when an “object” breaks the field which the PIR sensor has determined as the “Normal” thermal state.

Select D-Link Cameras offer 2 different types of motion detection

1. Software or Pixel Change Motion Detection: The camera looks for pixel changes between frames (user defined areas).

2. Hardware or PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor): Motion is detected when an “object” breaks the field which the PIR sensor has determined as the “Normal” thermal state.

Your D-Link switch has no built in DHCP server, meaning it does not have the capability to issue IP addresses. Please check your DHCP server to ensure that it is functioning properly. In most cases your router will act as your DHCP server.

If you are sure that your DHCP server is functioning properly then please test DHCP with other PCs connected to your switch. Your PC or network card may be the cause of your problem.
