Dlink 942L motion detection will NOT work for emails.
« on: May 30, 2012, 02:25:13 PM »

 ??? I have a 932L already and wanted to add another camera, so I purchased the 942L in the US. I live in Canada. The 932 works perfectly, emailing me without any problem. Set up was a breeze. This new camera appears to be a problem. I cannot get this turkey to email. I am very computer literate, and I have been working on this thing for ages now without success. I would like to return this thing and get another 932, but hard to do from here. Sorry that I bought this paperweight. I see from these forums that nobody else appears to have gotten it to work either. By the way, I upgraded it to the latest version firmware, no change.

Has anyone gotten this thing to email images using the motion detection?

Mine is working when it feels like it.... but I think its more down to the motion trigger than email itself.

That said, I have not been able to get email to work when the camera is set to a fixed IP,
and yes, settings like dns, gatway etc. are correct. So if you have fixed, revert back to DHCP
and test it again.

I have the same problem but no solution for you.

I have a 930 and a 932 set up that send e-mails to a fault.  However, my new 942 will not send any snapshot e-mail or video e-mail with the identical gmail setup.

I also consider myself to be fairly computer literate so it's incredibly frustrating when something does not function when it has an identical setup.
