DCS-930L and DCS-932L setup nightmare
« on: November 30, 2012, 10:59:50 AM »

I added a DCS-932L to my current DCS-930L and the setup has been a nightmare.

It seems that the DCS-932L keeps jumping IPs, from 192.168.0.20 to 192.168.0.117. This causes it to be lost in mydlink and dviewcam. Am I missing something here?

I've tried setting independent static IPs to both, but it hasn't remedied the situation. I've since reset both cameras to complete factory settings and it still keeps doing the same thing. I've also tried two other DCS-932L cameras and they all do the same thing. It seems like I can't get multiple cameras on the same network.

If someone has multiple cameras setup on the same network, can you tell me what settings you're using or if there were any additional steps besides plug-n-play?

Thanks so much

Rather than using a static IP address, did you try reserving the IP address through your router? Perhaps that approach will provide more stability.

This didn't work. I set both cameras to be static IPs on the camera themselves and on the router.

It seems whichever one I "install" first is the one that gets to work. The other one shuts on/off randomly.

I'm starting to do it's even possible to have multiple dlink cameras on the same network -_- Does anyone else do this?

Does the DCS-932L always jump from address 20 to 117 (why those two addresses)?  Is the DCS-930L allocated either of those two IP addresses? As a test you may want to try reducing the IP range in your router (e.g. from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.20).  See how the cameras behave.
