I have two registered DCS-942LB1. One is connected and viewable in MyDlink. The other is still connected via ethernet cable and says: 
"Unable to access your DCS-942LB1. If you cannot access your DCS-942LB1, please check that:
You have at least 256K of bandwidth. Your DCS-942LB1 is not being blocked by a firewall or an antivirus program"

I am certain have enough bandwidth and the firewalls are disabled.
IE 11 updated.

This seems to be a recurring issue on the boards. Any update?

  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DCSs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What Mfr and model is the main host router?

I recommend setting a static IP address ON the cameras outside of the main host routers default DHCP IP address pool as a troubleshooting step: 192.168.#.10 and .11  DHCP

Test cameras with uPnP and uPnP Port Forwarding both enabled on ALL cameras: DCS Cloud (L) Series Camera Configuration and Mydlink.com

What happens if you connect the 2nd 942 up as a wireless connection?
