In Router/AP mode, the Ethernet port is used to connect to your existing wired network (e.g. an existing router, a wired connection in a hotel room or Broadband Modem).

In Repeater and Wi-Fi Hotspot modes, the Ethernet port is used to connect a wired client to the wireless network (e.g. computer, Smart TV, video game console).

Some camera models use a solid green light indicator to show connectivity to the network, this happens when the camera obtains an IP address from the local DHCP server and joins the network.

When configuring these cameras to use in a wireless network environments, beware of the following:

  • Wireless network signal can degrade depending upon the position, distance and number of obstacles that exist between the wireless camera and wireless access point location.
  • Wireless signal degradation can affect the bandwidth available for the camera’s normal functions like video transmission.

Because signal degradation does not necessarily means there is no link to the network, the following scenario is possible.

When a camera is setup for wireless connectivity at close proximity to the access point or wireless router, the wireless installation can be confirmed successful.  After moving the camera at the location where it was intended to be setup, the wireless coverage may not be as strong at this location. This forces the camera to only have enough signal from the access point or wireless router to join the network (thus showing a green light indicator ), but not enough signal to initiate video transmission over the link. The following recommendations may help overcome this issue:

  1. Try moving the camera to a location closer to the access point or wireless router
  2. Try moving the router to a location closer to the camera
  3. Make sure to adjust your router’s wireless antennas to the recommended position.
  4. Expand your wireless network using a repeater or wireless extender.

When watching the video feed of your D-Link camera in close proximity, using a mobile device or at setup time using your desktop, you most likely will experience audio feedback also know as the Larsen effect. Here are a few things to do to avoid suffering from that annoying sound.
1. Mute/Lower the speaker volume on the viewing device (smartphone, tablet, computer, etc).
2. Mute/Lower Mic Sensitivity on the camera. Go to the camera’s web UI > Setup > Audio > Adjust volume setting.
3. Keep the speaker(Smartphone, tablet, computer, etc) further and facing away from the microphone on the camera, so the speaker output sound does not feed directly into the mic.
4. If you must use the camera in a close proximity environment, use a headset instead of speaker while viewing
