    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.

I want to purchase an extension cable for my web cam C905. What specs do I use? What do you recommend? I want to mount it about 20 feet from my computer.

You want a cable with a signal repeater to make sure the signal doesn't time out as USB can do at long ranges. 
Try this 32 foot cable with signal repeater, pretty cheap at 14$, and Amazon is a reputable seller, and generally has good return policies should it not work.
Another solution for low latency extension is USB over CAT5 adapters, but would probably be pricier. CAT5 cable is low resistance so the response time does not degrade over distance as easily.

Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

D-Link DCS-900W The camera will not pick up the wireless network.

The most straightforward way is to run the setup again. You will get to a screen that says your IP address may be invalid.

At this point you need to answer 'yes' to 'would you like to change your IP address'

You now need to enter an address that corresponds to your network. You should choose an address that has the same numbers in the first three groups e.g. and assign a number in the last group, e.g. 99

So if your network is based on i suggest you assign the address

I hope this helps.

If not, please respond on this site and I will try to help further.

Replacement parts - I lost the cable that connects the camera to the computer, I need a new one.

Forget the cable. Buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.

Wireless installation for DCS-5220

Plug in the network cable first and make sure the following settings are correct:

1. SSID is the same and set to broadcast
2. You are using the same WPA AES password as the router (or WEP password if you are using WEP)
3. The wireless antennae is connected
4. The camera is located not to far from the router

After that, remove the network cable and restart your camera.
