D-Link IP Cameras for Home > DCS-2630L

Manual Setup

(1/7) > >>

BadMojo:
Love the camera, despise the setup procedure as it fails to work 50% of the time.

Manual setup instructions for the non-lobotomized:


* Power on camera
* Wait for orange blinking light
* Connect laptop to wifi name printed on the the instruction card
* Login using the wifi password also printed on the card
* Open web browser
* Navigate to 10.255.255.1
* Login to camera
* Username admin
* Password <blank>
* Configure camera using web interface
* Connect to wifi network of your choice without having to rely upon MyDlink applet discovery, which seems to fail regularly
These instructions should be included with the camera, I shouldn't have to figure them out for myself.
Hope this helps somebody else.

They are not listed in the user manual?  ???

Nope, you get two options: The MyDlink Lite app that failed to register 2/3 cameras, or you get the WPS option (shudder) on pages 10-11 of the user manual. I had to run a discovery to find out the address that D-Link assigns this device for its own private network until you can reconfigure it...

I understand having easy-button instructions for the less-technical, but don't hide the details from those of us that are capable of managing our own devices.

Thank you, BadMojo, for this information.  Automated setup failed for me and this worked fine.
