Title: Wizard can't find DCS-930L
Post by: NurseBob on June 29, 2011, 11:59:56 PM
I'd had my camera offline for the last couple of months, and in the interim I've upgraded both my main pc and the wireless router.  I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on the pc, and the router is a netgear gigabit dual band wired/wireless.  When running through the camera setup I am not able to get setup to find the camera, whether wired or wireless.  I know that the camera's online as it shows in the routers device table, and I'm able to access the camera with my browser.  However, the failed setup prevents my registering the camera on MyDlink.  Any thoughts?  Should I be looking at the ports on the router in regard to the camera's IP?
My goal is to be able to remotely monitor my home, which the MyDlink service seemed to offer.  Based on what I've read, it appears there are other ways to achieve my goal, but I would like to figure out the install problem.  Sometimes "wizards" are a PIA, especially when they don't give any error information...

Prior to running the setup wizard, did you reset the camera to the factory defaults?
(hold a paperclip in the pinhole on the rear of the camera for 6 seconds).
