Title: Camera cannot be found
Post by: buzzmario on August 31, 2012, 08:04:05 AM
Hi, I just brought this D-Link DCS-930L. I insert the disc and follow the instruction and select the option of without WPS and follow the step of connecting the lan cable and power point but at Step 2, after the green light, it keep prompting me that it can't find the camera. it connected to the router where there is a lan cable connected to my pc.

any advise? thanks

I believe that the camera's default IP address is, so unless your router is serving that number range on the LAN it won't see it.
Example - in many Mac systems the router may be at, serving addresses like 10.0.1.n -
Assuming that is the case, can you try (temporarily) connecting the camera directly to the computer, and setting the computer to be manually, with "router" set to the camera ip, and mask Then start a browser and put the camera ip into the address bar. Then you can set the camera ip to whatever the router needs - of course it will stop being visible with this hookup, so next, go back to normal router connections.
