Network Setup

This section allows you to configure your network settings.


Select this connection if you have a DHCP server running on your network and would like a dynamic IP address to be updated to your camera automatically.


Static IP Client:

You may obtain a static or fixed IP address and other network information from your network administrator for your camera. A static IP address will ease you for accessing your camera in the future.

IP Address: The fixed IP address Subnet Mask: The default value is “” Used to determine if the destination is the same subnet.

Default Gateway: The gateway used to forward frames to destinations in a different subnet. Invalid gateway settings may cause the failure of transmissions to a different subnet.

Primary DNS: Primary domain name server that translates names to IP addresses.

Secondary DNS: Secondary domain name server to backup the Primary DNS.

PPPoE Settings:

PPPoE settings:If you are using a PPPoE connection, enable it and enter the User Name and Password for your PPPoE account. You can get this information from your Internet service provider (ISP).

Port Settings:

You may configure a Second HTTP port that will allow you to connect to the network camera via a standard web browser. The port can be set to a number other than the default TCP ports 80. A corresponding port must be opened on the router. For example, if the port is changed to 1010, users must type instead of only”.

UPnP Settings:

Enable this setting to configure your camera as an UPnP device in the network.

Wireless Settings:

This section allows you to setup and configure the wireless settings on your D-Link DCS-930L camera.



Service Set Identifier, an identifier for your wireless network.


The default setting is channel 6. Select the same channel that is using by other wireless devices within your network. When there is interference from the wireless networks that overlap with one another,you may change the channel to obtain maximum performance for your connection.

Connection Mode:

Infrastructure is a wireless connection using an access point as a transmission point of all wireless devices. Ad-Hoc is a wireless connection used without an access point, where your DCS-930L is directly connecting to your PC. This is done using the on-board wireless adapter on the D-Link DCS-930L connected to a wireless adapter on the PC.

Site Survey:

This page will allow you to select a wireless network that the D-Link DCS-930L was able to detect.

Wireless Security Mode:

For security, there are three choices; None, WEP, and WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK. Select the same encryption method that is being used by your wireless device/ router.


WEP provides security by encrypting data over your wireless network so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one wireless device to another. To gain access to a WEP network, you must know the key. The key is a string of characters that you create. When using WEP, you must determine the level of encryption. The type of encryption determines the key length. 128-bit encryption requires a longer key than 64-bit encryption.

WPA-PSK / WPA2PSK Settings:

An appropriate Preshared Key, which is needed in order to connect to the wireless network.
