Question about D-Link DCS-1000W Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

DCS-1000w through Dlink DIR-655 router

No matter what I seem to try I cannot access the default configuration page for this internet camera. I had no problems with my previous Dlink router. I have reset the camera but cannot access the default page at the supposed address (192.168.0.20). I have also tried connecting via a laptop and cross over cable while matching the ip address range but this did not work either. I cannot ping the address from any LAN computer, camera does not appear in IPView software (tells me it's an invalid IP address when adding a camera). Setup wizard does nothing at all and detects no camera. Anyone who can help me with this I would sure appreciate it. Thanks so much.

    I have this camera and router. I can see it via ethernet at the camera ip address, but as soon as I disconnect the ethernet I cannot access it wirelessly. I called Dlink and they tried changing the router to 802.11b, setting it to WEP since the camera is not WPA compatable, and removing security altogether. None work. Dlink came back on the line to say this camera is not compatible with this router. I find it hard to believe that they would not have a work around for their own product. I think someone out there is smarter than Dlink tech support. If yo're out there, please share your solution!!

    IPview (Version 3.4.1. 200306 12000) will not connect to the DCS-1000W , although if I do an automatic search it actually finds and identifies the Camera IP address , its name , model number and the MAC address correctly. However , when I choose this camera , it refuses to connect saying "Invalid IP address!"

    I am using Windows Vista Buiness.

    I wonder if this old version of D-Link IPView has problem with Vista only. Anyone tried IPView on Windows XP?

These cameras are touchy. Hold the reset button on the back in for about 20-30 seconds. Bring up the CD software you got with the camera, it should spot the camera right off and you can configure. That seems to be the only way I can communicate with this model. After setup, then browsers, etc seem to work fine. I would also download the latest Firmware and update.

I do i get the default username and password for vivotek fd8134 camera


An IP camera is a video camera that can be viewed over a Local Area Network or the Internet. The camera typically is monitored locally from a computer via the network to which the camera is attached. With just a few additional configurations of your network, you can access the IP Network Camera so that it can be monitored remotely using the Internet. This is the benefit of a network camera, as it can reside on an IP network and the video stream can be accessed or saved remotely.

Get the Default Gateway of your IP. step 2 Do this by entering "ipconfig/all" in your Command Prompt and hitting "Enter" on your keyboard. Your IP information will be brought up, and number you are looking for is the Default Gateway. This is underneath the IP address. Identify this number by its number pattern, which will look like the following: 111.222.3.4. Access your router. This is done by simply typing the default gateway from Step 1 above into the address bar of your Internet browser, and pressing "Enter." Forward your port by configuring your camera. Open the configuration section on the router web page where port forwarding is located by clicking on the "Applications & Gaming" link along the top of the page. In this menu, click on "Port Range Forwarding." Configuration sections can be located differently with each kind of router. Find this information by referring to the documentation that came with your router when you purchased it. Access your camera over the Internet. To do this, type your public IP address into the address bar of the web browser and press "Enter" in the same way as described in Step 2 when entering your default gateway. Note: The public IP address is different from your regular IP address. The regular IP address identifies computers and other devices on your network, whereas your public IP address is what is used to make yours lf known to others on the Internet. Your Internet service provider can supply you with your public IP address if you call them and ask for it. Hope it helps.

How to configure the UPNP in panasonic camera?If we need access from the internet should we register in viewnet.com?


To access your camera from the Internet you will need to configure uPnP (or configure port forwarding manually) and register with some kind of dns service like viewnetcam (or know your home's external IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider).

1. To configure uPnP on your camera, look in the network settings for an automatic network configuration option - this will trigger the camera to talk to your router using uPnP to set up port forwarding. The default for one camera is to use port 80 for the outside port and something like 192.168.1.253 for the internal network address (internal to your home only). uPnP will try to configure the second and third cameras to external ports 50000 or 50001. My router failed to configure the 3rd camera so I had to manually add a port forwarding option from my router's admin pages. To note, you can configure all port forwarding manually from within the router admin pages. Just list the internal network address to your camera (like 192.168.2.253) and specify a different port for each camera (like 50000 to 50000). You can then access your camera by typing in 192.168.2.253:5000

2. Then, you should register with viewnetcam.com. Adding your cameras on viewnetcam will give you access to them from outside your house without you having to know the IP address to your home network. You will simply type in your viewnetcam url with ":" and the port number (like username.viewnetcam.com:50000).

Note: When trying to access your camera from outside your home (or even pinging your router from outside your home), you need to know the IP address of your home. This is assigned by your Internet Service Provided and can change every time you reboot your modem. Services like viewnetcam keep track of the IP address to your home and update it automatically when it changes (your camera will communicate with Viewnetcam servers occasionally to update the IP address). All you have to remember is one constant URL (the viewnetcam url) and you can get to your cameras!

Settings on Linksys router for the DCS 5220 to view remotely and settings on Securicam


Configuring your Linksys router for remote desktop is a task that's needed before you can access your computer from outside the network. If you plan to connect to your remote desktop machine from the Internet, you need to configure the router to allow traffic to the PC. Linksys is a common router used on home networks for wireless and LAN configurations. Configuring your router to allow port forwarding to a remote desktop only takes a few steps through the graphical user interface.
  1. tep 1 Open your browser window and type the IP address of the router in your address bar. This opens a window for the username and password needed for access to configure the router.
  2. Step 2 Click the "Applications and Gaming" tab on the opening screen. This opens a window with a list of ports of which you can open for access on your network.
  3. Step 3 Type "Remote Desktop" in the application textbox.
  4. Step 4 Enter "3389" in the "Start" and "Stop" port ranges. This port number is specific to the remote desktop application.
  5. Step 5 Leave the value of "Both" in the protocol listbox.
  6. Step 6 Type the IP address of the internal machine on your network. The IP address is the machine running remote desktop. When traffic from the Internet reaches the router, it forwards the request to this IP address.
  7. Step 7 Check the "Enabled" checkbox and click "Save Settings."
  8. Step 8 Close the browser window.

D-Link 5300w incorrect URL


I have read the manual and it looks like the problem can be fixed by using a paper clip or something about the same size and resetting to the factory defaults. Then go through the setup again and that should clear it up. Also to facilitate remote viewing and control from outside the local network it would be a good idea to go into the router configuration for your home network and assignee a fixed IP address to the camera and then forward the ports needed by the camera to the new fixed IP. The procedure for configuring your router will vary by manufacturer so consult the manuals. Or send a new request with a model number and I will try and help. The camera manual is available at http://support.dlink.ca/products/view.asp?productid=DCS%2D5300 if you need, along with some helpful tips. Good Luck

Cannot factory reset DLink DCS-G900


i had the same problem and it was frustrating at first. You have to access your router and find the start ip address and the range and make sure dhcp is enabled. then plug the camera into one of the lan ports using the cable provided and plug the other end into the camera. then refresh the list of wireless clients in the router. Also if using a pre n router make sure that the broadcast is not mixed and is set to g mode. Only a g router will work or a router with g set to broadcast. i couldn't get the camera to work until i changed this setting. Anyways getting back to what i was talking about. When you see the list of clients you will see the camera listed on the client list. Write down the ip address example (192.168.1.108) and then on the computer (make sure you have another cable plugged into another lan port on the router and plugged into your computer) go into the dlink setup wizard. Press the search button the camera will appear on the list. Then click on the wizard and wait. It will say that the settings do not match there is an ip conflict or something to that matter do you want to change the settings click change settings and put the ip that the router configured. subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 and put the default gateway of the router which is usually 192.168.0.1 on most dlink routers but on the linksys i was using it was 192.168.1.1. After changing these settings it will let you into the camera configuration and after that you can unplug the cable and wait a minute or two. the green light should start blinking showing that the camera is connected to the router. Bingo your all done your camera is back to normal wireless function. You might have to unplug and reset the camera. If you have more than one camera make sure you unplug all the other camera's before configuring the first one. This will prevent any ip conflcts. Hope this helps you.
