    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?

    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.

You may have a bad ethernet cable. I would try the easy thing first and just go to Best Buy, Amazon etc... and purchase a new RJ45 CAT5 or CAT6 ethernet cable. Since you are receiving an orange light it is indicating that the port is not active. Also check the cable make sure its seated properly at both ends even with a new cable. Cheers! Hope it helps!

How to configure the two wifi router


Are you trying to cascade two wireless routers? If yes, here's how:

1. First make sure that the first router (will serve as the server router) should be working. And then get the IP address of the server router.

2. Connect a CAT5 cable from the WAN port of the server router and the other end of the CAT5 cable should be connected to any of the LAN ports of the client router (which is the second router).

3. Then connect a computer directly to the client router and access its WEB UI.

4. Disable the DHCP server capability of the client router and set a static IP on the client router and make sure that it has the same IP range as the server router so that they would communicate.

5. After making sure that the two routers are on the same IP range, connect a computer to the server router and then ping the IP of the client router. Once you can ping it, then it should work.

If you're having a trouble with the setup or should you wish to have more information about the router, then refer to the router's user manual for necessary information.

Good luck and have a great day!

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.

High ping


Question, why are you using so many different routers? Sounds like you are causing a bottleneck in the network.

This is how I have my network.

Modem ---- PFSENSE Firewall (currently my DHCP Server) ------- Cisco Switch ------ Patch Panel ------- out to my Servers, computers and one wireless router. See only one machine is managing my IP addresses.

Buy a patch panel and run wireing to all the locations in the house or just run wireless.

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.)
