SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEMI


Have you setup a Virtual Server within the D-Link router? This should be on the ADVANCED tab in the D-Links Admin Configuration interface. Upon setup, the router should allow pass through of your request to the network connected device.

You will need the following in this configuration:

Name of device: SSC21WEB (or whatever the name of your device is)
IP Address: 192.168.0.101
Protocol Type: TCP
Public/Private Port: 10000 - 65535
Schedule: Always

IP camera keeps resets itself


Hi

I have a pretty good knowledge of these cameras as I have 5 around my house.....

IP address resets are likely caused by the default address being loaded (192.168.0.99) and the box is not checked to reset the IP on reboot. You have two options.....

Using IP surveillence, open the camera settings. You will be prompted that the recording will stop, just press OK. Once you get to the settings window, you should see your list of cameras and the config screen for the one that is highlighted. Pick the camera you want to change the setting for and go to the tab where you can assign the IP address and gateway. Type in the IP address you want it to use. Uncheck the box that says 'reset IP on reboot'. That box is at the top. Hit apply. Once you do that, cycle the power on the unit leaving it off for at least 10 seconds. When the camera reboots, type in the new IP and you should be able to view it. (sometimes the camera will default on that IP if your router is using 192.168.0.1 and DHCP for computers that has that IP in it's range of assignments of IPs. Telling the camera which one to use and telling it to not reset on reboot will make the new IP stay in the camera.)

Your second option is to use the Installation Wizard or IE, find the camera either by typing in the IP for the camera in IE with the http:// or linking to the device with the installation wizard. If you follow the same procedure of assigning the IP and unchecking the box on reboot like described earlier, this should cure your problem. You do NOT want the IP resetting on reboot unless the camera will not link to your home router (likely causes for this is the IP range the router uses, say 192.168.1.1 like most belkin or linksys routers use, does not cover the IP range of the camera in it's DHCP server.

What I found best was to buy a junk router, set it's DHCP IP range to cover 192.168.0.99, set the camera, save it, kill the cameras power, connect it to the router you plan to use, then start the camera back up. Make sure whatever IP address you use on the camera is one covered by the DHCP server list on the router. ie: camera is set to 192.168.2.2 and the router assigns IPs from 192.168.2.2 through192.168.2.254. If your router only assigns IPS from 192.168.2.100 through 192.168.2.200 and the IP on the camera is 192.168.2.2, you won't be able to connect to it.

Hope this helps

Forgotted the Ip of D-Link DP 300U print server


You may use the PSAdmin software to configure your print server even if you don't know the IP address. The only requirement is that the DP-300U has to be in the same network (subnet) as your PC running PSAdmin. In the PSAdmin, you will then be able to view or change the IP address.

Here is the link to download PSAdmin:
http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=DP%2D300U#apps

Remember that if you also have forgotten the Admin password, you will have to ship the unit to D-Link in order to have it factory reset.
