Solved in my case, i have a dcs-933, after tip here about someone replaced the power adapter i tryed that, and it solved my problem.
i have not tested voltage on the old one yet, but i will.
i use the camera outside, and it has been operated in -25deg`c. still good  :)

Interesting about the power adapter.  However, it is not likely any one bad power adapter since this has happened on all three of my 2330s.  It could only be that they had a bad batch since I bought them all around the same time.

You'll have to put a voltage testers on your adapters to make sure they are working to spec. I recently had an issue with a cell phone micro cell, phones would not connect and the microcell would not sync with the phone service. I put a new adapter on and the microcell is now working.  ;D

Thanks for the heads up.  I'll check the voltages.  Maybe I got a marginal batch of regulators with my 2330L cameras.

Anything is possible with this things. Helps to narrow down and weed out any issues.

Looks like this may be a dead topic but here's an update to my many postings on 2330L cams disconnecting. 

Back on site at my remote location where power is sometimes unstable and my 2330L cams do not come back online (1.14 firmware) though my 2630L cams do.  Looks like there may have been a power hiccup last night as reported by UPS system on router while I was about 60 miles away.  Lost 2330L cam.  Just a few days ago installed a DSP-W110 power switch in front of 2330L cam.  Remotely cycled power to camera via from about 60 miles away and was able to brink camera back online.  SCORE ONE FOR RECOVERING A DOWNED 2330L.  The jury is out on how robust this will be as we will be leaving for 3 months in another week.  I'm sure I'll have more opportunities to try this so long as the W110 doesn't lose its brains also.  Also unfortunate that you need to couple a remote power switch product with the camera for reliable access.

One concern I still have is that the DSP-W110 doesn't have a web servers as do the cameras.  I often access the cameras directly and bypass the dlink apps because I can sometimes get to them directly via port forwarding in my router while they show offline in myDlinkLite.  Dlink tells me that I have to go thru their app for the switch and I'm concerned that the switches will go "offline" to their app like the cameras do to their apps.

Will update over the next few months regarding robustness of this solution once I have more run time.  Hopefully this feedback will help others with this problem.

Ya, the small DSP units are kind of basic in there features and functionality. So no UI to speak of.

Glad the DSP can be used to help power cycle the camera.

Thanks for letting us know. Hope it helps future users.

Now that might be something worth reverse engineering, to turn on/off remotely via IP.

Note that the DSP-W110 is not totally dumb however since it did notify me of and install a firmware update when I added it so it has potential!

One last possibility is to implement powerline wifi.  I have no experience with this and don't know what distances you can connect over.  My worst case connection would be from the router connection through potentially three breaker panels, one of which has a whole house surge protector (could be a problem since it might mitigate the powerline signal in the house wiringl) and then to the final destination.  Total distance run could be 100 feet as the wires run and through 3 circuit breakers.

If you have any experience with any of the POE higher resolution cams with at least 30 ft IR illumination I'd be interested in your suggestions.  Also experience with powerline ethernet connections would help.

I know this is 2.5 years late probably, but I hope this meets you well.

I just upgraded a remote site to powerline ethernet.

Cams in DNR-202L (4 DCS-2330L, 2 outside wifi, 2 inside wifi) -- around 3pm everyday all the cams would start to flash RED connection problems. This would go on for a couple hours depending.
FPS when viewing a single camera was aobut 15-24FPS) usually, all 4 about 7-10FPS.

I bought 2 1,000Mb/s (1 Gb) powerline adapter.  I tested one out at my apartment.  Appeared to be a disaster.  I hooked up to my router, and tried to upload a file (50GB) from my laptop to my NAS from various outlets.  If I could get 25-50Mb/s I'd be mega happy.  Well, first test was best test, 12Mb/s.
Inside the box it said "install inline on the same electrical network" ( speeds not guaranteed on separate or something worse). 
test from 2 other outlets were worse - 6 and maybe 8 Mb/s.  Great!  Well, if I can get 12Mb/s that might be enough at the site.

Oddly - small jpeg files moved quickly and was responsive.  Internet browsing appeared to be not bad. I probably should have hit speedtest.net.

Well, I returned the one, and picked up a 2000Mb/s with powerline passthrough.

Well, to my suprise, this turned out like a champ.

The furthest indoor camera would not make a connection to the router it was connected via powerline.  Fair enough.

Basically - after a bunch of testing - Room 1 (1 camera DCS 2330L furthest away) feeds Room 2 with 2 cameras (DCS2330L), with 1Gb/s adapter.  Room 2 takes all 3 cameras into a switch, which feeds Room 3 with router with 2 Gb/s adapter.  Mind you these are all on separate breakers, so to me this is almost like a miracle.

Only problem we had was in room 3, with the router, the HD over the air TV got a lot of static.

Further moving the power line adapter to the other side of the room solved the problem (with a 25ft ethernet wire to the router).

Now all those wired cams are rocking 30fps/s solidly, no more red flashing connection problems in DNR202L, and all are showing 15fps in 4 camera mode.

The 2 remaining outdoor cams are near the router, so they are doing okay - and no longer flash connection problems either.

Playback speeds are very good too.

This saved me from having to crawl into a nasty crawlspace and try to feed more wire up through.   The only wire that was fed through is to the main router at the house.


I also got some great IR illuminators that light everything up.  I'll post a link to those as I am very sure dlink does not sell those.

I have two 20x10 Axton IR Illuminators.  https://axtontech.com/portfolio/nano-at-5me-a-poe-infrared/   depending on what/how you are pointed, that will cover 1 dcs 2330l camera.  At this point, you can turn off the IR illuminator in teh DCS 2330L, it becomes not needed at all.  Runs good on PoE, which we have used an injector in this case.

Also upgraded their 2012? PC which was on it's last leg (cpu fan blasting 100%), 4gb being sucked dry, avast eating memory, pagefile usage out of control, computer running just to page memory only to page it again probably.  Got a Intel I9700F, 16GB, nvidia rtx-2600super, this pc barely breaks a sweat on  1 core.  can't even hear it running.
