    I am having the same problem. I have tried everything. Only have it on one computer rest work fine. Going to try re-installing Java

    DCS-5300G - I have the same problem, HTTP 400 errors all the time with IE 7. I spent several hours reconfiguring several setting like ports, wires, reouter, firewalls, DMZ the camera IP on router, everything ! No luck if I use firefox I can get to it but no image just the controls beacuse the lack of activeX support in firefox, it also seems to me like even after using the installation wizard something is not right because I cannot connect to the camera wirelessly. I have been around computers for long time and used several webcams/web servers so believe me the web server in this cameras is not compatible with IE 7 and the new .NET framework the D-Link boys need to provide and update ASAP.

    Yes - Silverlight was indeed the problem (Vista / ie7 / Vivotek cameras).

    Interestingly my Y-Cam cameras were not affected.

    All cameras now accessible.

    Great work chaps!

    I have the DLink DCS5220 - have read the thread and removed silverlight - but my Router - DLink DIR655 cannot connect to the camera but it can detect it. Please advice as I have spoken to DLink's 24/7 service with no  better advice but to run the connection wizard that i have downloaded from their ftp server

Actually, the problem itself is not actually Silverlight, it is simply that the D-Link cameras appear to have a buffer overflow or some sort of problem with a long header. Specifically when the HTTP Header "Accept" gets too long, the device errors out and returns a 400 error. It just seems to be that Silverlight extends this header to a point where you can't use it. Even without Silverlight you could see this response.

If you want to see/modify your HTTP Header "Accept" items, simply go to the following in the registry:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Accepted Documents

I simply removed all of my office apps cause I really don't care to view them in my browser anyhow.

Good luck!

This has been posted on as a bug by one person. I validated this and marked it as very important. However, if anyone else can go there and add their feedback and vote for it's importance, the greater the chances it will get fixed by MS.

Doublly Excellent -- Had the same HTTP 400 symptoms with my Dlink 2120 Cameras, but my 5220 loaded, then hung on all my IE7 installations, Vista or XP -- (IE6 machines work perfectly with both camera types). Removing SIlverlight sorted the IE7 hangs and HTTP 400 problems. Thanks!

I have exactly the same problem with DCS 2100g camera. Other computers can see my camera. My vista and IE7 shows http 400 bad request. However, I've also used another vista IE7 machine which was able to connect.

Any solution?

    I just found the solution.

    Uninstall the program Microsoft silverlight (control panel--remove programs).

    My webcam finally worked! Took several hours/days to figure this out.

We have two D-Link DCS 5300 Cameras and they keep rebooting at about the same time everyday. We can't figure out why.

This sounds like it could be buggy firmware.

Try checking the d-link website if they have any newer firmware available. If they both reboot at the exact same time it could also be power related.

Can't connect to 5300w with IE 6.0

hmmm..sounds like a settings issue on IE...can Firefox see the camera, due to no active X control? That sounds like an application issue, not a device issue.
