Static IP setup losing its IP address
« on: July 01, 2012, 08:14:19 AM »

 ??? So I have 3 Dcs-3420's on the same network same static ip setup and they never have issues.  Im testing 1 942L, I've upgraded firmware to1.11, but periodically the camera loses its ip address which is weird because it is set static.  My wireless is set to Mac address security.  Now camera is outside in a shaded area, over night the camera worked all night, this morning it has reset three times.  Additionally, each time it resets/losses ip address it also loses the manually set time.

I'm thinking of buying about 6 more of these if the prove reliable, right now there is no way in hell I can suggest this camera for anyone,  help Please

Looking at the FAQ it appears many have this issue and are using timers to manually reset the camera!  Hope there is a solution that doesn't require a timer.  I added a suggestion to allow a setup in the firmware to force a soft reboot every hour.
