There's likely way more DCS-930L out-there than newer DCS-930LB so why did this cam get fixed and not the DCS-930L, and why didn't they get fixed kind of simultaneously. Both got killed at the same time!
Oct. 31, 2018 still lists as end of support for DCS-930L but absence of a firmware update now after another three weeks delay would imply its "End of Life" date quietly got moved ahead of its "End of Support" date, or did D-Link just forget ?

Rev A and B had difference chipsets. Rev A is from Oct 2010 which as you know it tech years a long time ago. D-Link has to contact the vendor for a fix and then write into the D-Link firmware. Unfortunately this can be a long process.

I appreciate your point, but three months is an unreasonable long time when, while D-Link is no Micro$oft, ancient WinXP got updates each month until 2014 (and again in early 2017 to fix WannaCry), and 2009's Win7 will receive automatic security fixes until 2020. Wish D-Link could keep up.

I agree it is a longer time frame than expected but the difference is Microsoft is the manufacture (and software, and have like 6 products) - they are the programmers, and software does not need to go through certifications such as FCC, CE, WI-Fi, etc like hardware does. That all takes time. Apples and oranges.

We apologize for the wait and inconvenience. There are work arounds if you need to configure and/or view your camera via web browser/mydlink.com.  The mydlink apps are not affected so you can use it to configure and view your camera.
