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.

Installation the D-Link DGS-2205 Green Switch

1.Before You Connect to the Network

The site where you install the Switch may greatly affect its performance. Please follow these guidelines for setting up the Switch.

• Install the Switch on a sturdy, level surface that can support at least 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) of weight. Do not place heavy objects on the Switch.

• The power outlet should be within 1.82 meters (6 feet) of the Switch.

• Visually inspect the power cord and see that it is fully secured to the AC power port.

• Make sure that there is adequate space for proper heat dissipation from and adequate ventilation around the Switch. Leave at least 10 cm (4 inches) of space at the front and rear of the Switch for ventilation.

• Install the Switch in a fairly cool and dry place for the acceptable temperature and humidity operating ranges.

• Install the Switch in a site free from strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors), vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.

• When installing the Switch on a level surface, attach the rubber feet to the bottom of the device. The rubber feet cushion the Switch, protect the casing from scratches, and prevent it from scratching other surfaces.

Mounting the Switch on the Wall

The DGS-2205 can also be mounted on a wall. Two mounting slots are provided on the bottom of the switch for this purpose. Please make sure that the front panel is exposed in order to view the LEDs. Please refer to the illustration below:

1. Mount the Nylon screw anchors into a cement wall.
2. Drive the T3 x 15L screws into the Nylon screw anchors.
3. Hook the mounting holes of the switch back on the screws.

Connecting the Switch

■DGS-2205 to End Node

End nodes include PCs outfitted with a 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps RJ-45 Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) and most routers. An end node can be connected to the Switch via a twisted-pair Category 3, 4, 5, or 5e UTP/STP cable. The end node can be connected to any of the ports of the Switch.

The Link/Act LEDs for each UTP port light green when the link is valid. The LED over the port label indicates a port speed of either 10/100 Mbps or 1000Mbps. A blinking LED on the bottom indicates packet activity on that port.

■Hub/Switch to DGS-2205

These connections can be accomplished in a number of ways using a standard Ethernet cable.

• A 10BASE-T hub or switch can be connected to the Switch via a twisted-pair Category 3, 4, 5, or 5e UTP/STP cable.
• A 100BASE-T hub or switch can be connected to the Switch via a twisted -pair Category 5 UTP/STP cable.
• A 1000BASE-T switch can be connected to the Switch via a twisted -pair Category 5e or better UTP/STP cable.

■Connecting To Network Backbone or Server

Any of the five Gigabit Ethernet ports are ideal for uplinking to a network backbone or network server.

Troubleshooting

●Why can´t I share my Internet connection to multiple computers when using my D-Link DGS-2205 switch?

If you are connecting directly to a Cable or DSL modem, you will need a router to “share” your Internet connection or a computer using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) or Proxy. Switches and hubs do not allow you to share a single IP address to multiple computers.

Another alternative is to contact your ISP and purchase extra IP addresses for each additional computer.

●Does the DGS-2205 switch have an uplink port?

The DGS-2205 has Auto-MDI ports which automatically sense the type of cable being used (e.g. Crossover or Straight-through) and adjust themselves accordingly to pass data over the network.

●What is the maximum length of Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable that can be used between the DGS-2205 and other devices such as routers, switches, computers, etc.?

The maximum length of Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable that can be used between computers and other devices on a network is 100 meters or about 328 feet. Keep in mind that this is a theoretical limit. Usually, you will want to keep the distance between devices well below the limit.

I cannot see the Setup Wizard when I turn on my DSM series media player for the first time.

•Make sure your TV is displaying the appropriate video source. You may need to use the AV Input, Source, Select, or TV/Video button on your TV or TV remote to change video sources. If you are having trouble changing the video source, refer to the instructions that came with your TV.

•If you did not connect the player directly to your TV, but are instead passing the signal through your VCR, make sure your VCR is displaying the appropriate video source. You may need to use the Input or Source button on your VCR or VCR’s remote control. Some VCRs only pass the signal through when they are turned off. If you are having trouble displaying the correct video source, refer to the instructions that came with your VCR.

d-link-dsm-320

•Make sure cables are connected to the IN jacks on your TV or VCR, not the OUT jacks.

•The cables you are using to connect your receiver to your TV or other equipment may be damaged or defective. Try exchanging the cables connected to the receiver with other cables that you know are working properly.

•Verify the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet and that the outlet is not controlled by a light switch.

What are some Wireless Installation Considerations, that I might have to look in to?

The D-Link DSM allows you to access your network a wireless connection anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home. The key to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:

d-link-dsm-520

1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link DSM and router to a minimum – each wall or ceiling can reduce your DSM’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized between the PC-on-TV and your router.

2. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.

3. Building Materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on range. Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal, walls with insulation, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.

4. Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.

5. If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and home security systems), your wireless connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make sure your 2.4GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless devices as possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone is not in use.
