No not yet I was reading in the forum that a java update could also be the culprit,  tomorrow I will check that,  it may have not been the firmware  that caused the problem,  I dont remember a java updae but I will check

I haven't noticed any changes with the last 3 firmware updates to be perfectly honest.

JavaLawyer,
How come the new firmware isn't posted on D-Link's Support site?
Is this a beta, or full release?
Do you/they release it here first for testing purposes by forum members?

Just curious, especially considering that there are no release notes for this version, which seems rather unusual.

Actually, what you are observing is not unusual.

This public release was posted on the mydlink.com/support site, which is where I'm linking the file from. The mydlink.com and dlink.com support sites are typically not always synchronized, so there's some lag as files are posted from one to the other. As far as change logs are concerned, unfortunately, there is sometimes a delay from the time firmware is released to the time a change log is publicly posted. As soon as the change log becomes available I'll usually post.

As I have noticed, with 1.23 Camera stopped discontinuous NTP-requests.  By the way, who knows, why 942L connects to the some ip range without any peermission? The cloud is not configured. This is not a clip or picture of motion detection action. What does this camera need to send or recieve?

I see that "General - Reboot on a schedule" from the wishlist has been added to the Maintenance-->System page under a Reboot section.
