    I'm having the same problem with the DCS-900W. Works great when hardwired, but cant get it to work wireless. Was curious if you found a fix?

  • endure Nov 17, 2008

    I have been wrestling with this problem for a while as well. I don't think it's a hardware problem as my brother in law has the same problem with his now. It's too bad that D-Link has discontinued updating firmware for this camera.

    Any ideas on how to test if this is a hardware problem?

I've had similar problems with 900's. Problem is, they have too short of a range. If you sit the camera (wireless) beside your router, you work fine. Separate it, no connection. They sell several models of antenna extenders for D-Link models including a huge master antenna, if you have a D-Link router. That has all my 900's working.

Need to know what i need to connect my prewired home (with cat5 cable running from box in garage to jacks in 4 rooms) to the internet. currently just have cable modem in office.


You would need a 4 - 8 port router... with a wire going to each Jack... and these would plug into the Router ports, The router plugs into the Modem. You have to put the Ethernet plugs on each end of the Cat5 cable. Then you setup your network. But if you have a wireless router you simply need each PC WiFi enabled, IE: A wireless card in each PC, that way you do NOT need Cat5. Then each PC, simply connects to the Router/Modem.

I have a desktop and a laptop (new for xmas) and I want to set up the laptop to the wireless-N Router Model WRT160N. I am set up with internet through a bundle system through our television. Do I plug the...


first a couple of things.
if your router has wireless support your laptop (if new) should have a wireless adapter built in, so basically your destop computer can be wirely plugged into the router and your laptop shoud "connect wirelessly" to your adapter
so this is how your set up should look like

desktop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ----- wire----- desktop

laptop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ))wireless))) laptop

you need read up a bit, here are some links that will have info you need

manual for wireless configuration (select the proper revision for your router and check user manual)

configure wireless network for vista


read up and if you have any questions post back.

hope that helps.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Will not connect to the internet wired or wireless


Unplug your power from the modem first and after that unplug your power to your router, disconnect all your cat5 cables and wait for at least 20 secs. After 20 secs or so go ahead and plug your power back to your modem and wait until all the flashing green lights are solid and that the link light starts blinking. After that plug in your Routers power (You can also reboot your PC while this is going on) . Wait until all blinking lights becomes steady then re-connect your cat5 from the modem to your routers uplink and last the cat5 cable from the router to your PC. If you'd rather not test the direct connection then go ahead and switch your wireless on.

Your wireless connection properties on your PC under "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" should be set to "Obtain IP address automatically" and that "Obtain DNS server address automatically" should also be set. Your routers should, if not already, be set to automatic DHCP. Make sure that on your Device Manager > Network Adapters that your wireless network adapter is not disabled and that it has the correct driver (yellow exclamation on it indicates it needs correct driver). You should disable your integrated ethernet LAN card if you have enabled your wireless Network Adapter to avoid conflict.

On your Wireless Network Connection properties under "Wireless Network" tab go to "Preferred networks" and highlight your wireless network name (SSID) . After highlighting click on the "Advanced" button and select "Access Point (infrastructure only) networks only"

D-Link DP-311P Wireless print server reseting


Hi Luis,

Sorry, it had been my mistake, did not realise your model does not have ethernet port at the back.

On D-Link printer servers that do not have cable connections it requires a couple more operations, you must do the following to connect safely to the server and open configuration:

  • On the rear panel of the DP-311P you fiind a switch to set server to Config mode. Set the switch to
  • Now go to the computer that is connecting wirelessly to the D-Link, go to wireless adapter properties, for example using control panel, and set the adapter to Ad-Hoc mode.
  • Change manually the wireless adapter IP Address so that it is in the same IP Address range
  • as the DP-311P, set the wireless adapter to a static IP address comprised within 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.255 excluding 192.160.0.10.
  • Always in wireless adapter settings >> IP configuration, set subnet mask to 255.255.255.0.
  • Ensure you click OK, or Apply in network settings Window, and restart the computer to apply new network settings.
  • Open Internet Explorer and type the IP Address of your wireless print server in the address bar. The default IP Address is 192.168.0.10.
You also find procedure explained at page 7 of the user manual here : D-Link DP-311P

Then follow instructions at page 15 to reset the server.

After you have finished configuring the DP-311P, to save the changes, you must toggle the mode switch on the rear panel of the print server back to “Normal” mode.

Wireless connection works but no plug in connection


The wired nic in your laptop will have a separate ip address than your wireless nic. I suspect you either have the router not set to hand out ip addresses, the info it is handing out is wrong, or you may have a static ip set. Did you ever have the laptop working on the wired nic?

Try disabling the wireless connection, plug up the cat 5 cable, open a dos prompt and type;
ipconfig /all

Notice the information. Now unplug the cable, enable the wireless connection and do the same for the wireless nic. The ip address should be different, but everything else should be the same. Let me know what you find.

Signifcant delay when printing


Your post does not mention all IP addresses in use, and which devices use wireless. That information would be helpful.

Is it possible that you are getting an IP address from a router for your internet access, then when you try to talk to your print server it may be trying to assign an ip address too.

(Sometimes a wired computer also has wireless enabled, which can cause an issue when one ip address has already been received on the wired connection and a wireless connection is also trying to connect.)
