Wifi connection drops after some weeks
« on: July 20, 2012, 05:04:37 AM »

I'm having trouble with one of my DCS-930L cameras. I have successfully installed it and it's connected wirelessly to a Dovado router. However, after some 2 weeks the wireless connection drops and I can't connect to the camera anymore. As the camera is 350 km away I can't restart it. This happens everytime and the last time I was around the camera and indeed the camera LED was green. I restarted it by pulling the powercord and after that the camera worked for som 2-3 weeks and then the same problem again.

I have 4 cameras, and it's always the same one that drops the connection and the router is only some 5 meters away from the camera. No walls between the router and the camera. I have the ability to restart the router with an sms, but that doesn't make the camera reconnect.

Can this be a setup problem or a faulty camera?

Here's a solution some owners have implemented who experience intermittent dropped connections and are unable to physically reset the camera: DCS-9XX - Remote Reset When Camera Is Unresponsive

After turning off static ip address and activating DHCP connection under LAN connection, the camera no longer loses connection to the wifi router. I also changed the HTTP port from 800 to 80.
