Network Setup

This section allows you to configure your network settings.

DHCP:

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.

dlink-DCS-930L-Wireless-Setup

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 “255.255.255.0.” 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 http://192.168.0.100:1010 instead of only http://192.168.0.100”.

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.

dlink-DCS-930L-Network

SSID:

Service Set Identifier, an identifier for your wireless network.

Channel:

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:

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.

1.What can I do if I forget my password when using D-Link DCS-930L?

If you forget your password, you will need to perform a hard reset of your camera. This process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.

To reset your DCS-930L camera, please use an unfolded paperclip to press and hold the RESET button for at least 3 seconds while your camera is plugged in.

2.In addition to using mydlink.com, is there another way to access the D-Link DCS-930L camera remotely over the Internet?

Yes, you can access your D-Link DCS-930L camera over the Internet through the following URL after successfully installing your camera through the Camera Installation.

Wizard:
http://[mydlink No.].mydlink.com

For example, if your camera’s mydlink No. was 12345678, you would be able to access your camera remotely by opening your web browser and going to http://12345678.mydlink.com

This URL will open a webpage where you will be asked to log in by entering your camera’s password. After entering your password, your camera’s Live View window will open, and you will be able to configure your camera as well.

3.Why does the LED not light up?

The power supply might be faulty. Confirm that you are using the provided DC 5V power supply for this network camera. Verify that the power supply is correctly connected. If the camera is functioning normally, the LED may have been disabled. See page 36 for information about how to enable the LED.

4.Why is the DCS-930L camera’s network connection unreliable?

There might be a problem with the network cable. To confirm that the cables are working, PING the address of a known device on the network. If the cabling is OK and your network is reachable, you should receive a reply similar to the following (…bytes = 32 time = 2 ms).

Another possible problem may be that the network device such as a hub or switch utilized by the Network Camera is not functioning properly. Please confirm the power for the devices are well connected and functioning properly.

5.Why does the Network Camera DCS-930L work locally but not remotely?

This might be caused by the firewall protection. Check the Internet firewall with your system administrator. The firewall may need to have some settings changed in order for the Network Camera to be accessible outside your local LAN. For more information, please refer to the section about installing your camera behind a router.

Make sure that the Network Camera isn’t conflicting with any Web server you may have running on your network.
The default router setting might be a possible reason. Check that the configuration of the router settings allow the Network Camera to be accessed outside your local LAN.

6.Why does a series of broad vertical white lines appear through out the image?

It could be that the CMOS sensor (a square panel situated behind the lens that measures the light signals and changes it into a digital format so your computer can present it into an image that you are familiar with) has become overloaded when it has been exposed to bright lights such as direct exposure to sunlight or halogen lights. Reposition the Network Camera into a more shaded area immediately as prolonged exposure to bright lights will damage the CMOS sensor.

7.The camera is producing noisy images. How can I solve the problem?

The video images might be noisy if the Network Camera is used in a very low light environment.

8.The images are poor quality, how can I improve the image quality?

Make sure that your computer’s display properties are set to at least 6-bit color. Using 16 or 256 colors on your computer will produce dithering artifacts in the image, making the image look as if it is of poor quality.

The configuration on the D-Link DCS-930L Network Camera image display is incorrect. The Web Configuration Video section of the Web management allows you to adjust the related-parameters for improved images such as: brightness, contrast, hue and light frequency. Please refer to the Web Configuration section for detailed information.
