Hi

I have a pretty good knowledge of these cameras as I have 5 around my house.....

IP address resets are likely caused by the default address being loaded (192.168.0.99) and the box is not checked to reset the IP on reboot. You have two options.....

Using IP surveillence, open the camera settings. You will be prompted that the recording will stop, just press OK. Once you get to the settings window, you should see your list of cameras and the config screen for the one that is highlighted. Pick the camera you want to change the setting for and go to the tab where you can assign the IP address and gateway. Type in the IP address you want it to use. Uncheck the box that says 'reset IP on reboot'. That box is at the top. Hit apply. Once you do that, cycle the power on the unit leaving it off for at least 10 seconds. When the camera reboots, type in the new IP and you should be able to view it. (sometimes the camera will default on that IP if your router is using 192.168.0.1 and DHCP for computers that has that IP in it's range of assignments of IPs. Telling the camera which one to use and telling it to not reset on reboot will make the new IP stay in the camera.)

Your second option is to use the Installation Wizard or IE, find the camera either by typing in the IP for the camera in IE with the http:// or linking to the device with the installation wizard. If you follow the same procedure of assigning the IP and unchecking the box on reboot like described earlier, this should cure your problem. You do NOT want the IP resetting on reboot unless the camera will not link to your home router (likely causes for this is the IP range the router uses, say 192.168.1.1 like most belkin or linksys routers use, does not cover the IP range of the camera in it's DHCP server.

What I found best was to buy a junk router, set it's DHCP IP range to cover 192.168.0.99, set the camera, save it, kill the cameras power, connect it to the router you plan to use, then start the camera back up. Make sure whatever IP address you use on the camera is one covered by the DHCP server list on the router. ie: camera is set to 192.168.2.2 and the router assigns IPs from 192.168.2.2 through192.168.2.254. If your router only assigns IPS from 192.168.2.100 through 192.168.2.200 and the IP on the camera is 192.168.2.2, you won't be able to connect to it.

Hope this helps

    For the poster who cannot remember their pasword...



    You will need to reset the camera before doing any of the above. There is a small button on the ack of the camera that you use a paper clip on. Push it in and hold it for at least 5 seconds. Once the camera is reset, then you can provision it.



    You may not have forgotten your password, it may just be corrupt on the camera. I had one here recently that would not accept my password that I knew I set on the camera. Resetting the unit cured the problem.



    You may want to make sure your camera is using the current firmware, as some bugs with web server hangs were corrected in the latest release, which may attribute to the problem. The latest camera firmware is 1.04 and can be downloaded and installed either with the installation wizard or on the camera web pages.



    Hope this helps.

Go into the router and give your cameras a static IP. You do that by turning Dhcp off. Select and or give them the suggested IP. Make sure in app settings you turn on force close network connection. Just a couple quick tips. Static IP then they will not reset.

How to set Static local IP Address for D-link DCS 5220 IP Camera? Am using Linksys WRTG54 Router, with SSID & WPA. I had set the D-Link DCS wireless to use the same SSID and WPA, but once I plug out...


To set a static IP on the camera, do the following:

1. Chose an IP address for the camera that is outside your normal DHCP range but within your network subnet.
For example, if your router uses DHCP and gives out addresses in the range of 192.168.1.1 up to 192.168.1.10, you should chose an IP address beyond that (e.g. 192.168.1.20).
2. Login to your camera's current IP address and go to Setup -> Network setup
3. Turn off DHCP and type in the IP address that you chose into the configuration.
4. Restart your camera.

The above should fix your Static IP address question.

With regards to your Wireless question, you should make sure of the following:
1. Your router is set to broadcast its SSID
2. Your router is setup to use WPA (not WPA2)
3. Your AES password in the camera config is the same as that as the routers

Hope this helps

Problem with IP Surveillance configuration


Can you view the stream in IE or IP surveillence or is it that you hit the camera in IE, the sign in box shows up (cause you put in a pasword), you put in the password, and it cannot connect and says retry.

Possible problems.....

The IP you are typing in is really not the IP of the camera (comes from the box being checked that says 'reset the IP on reboot') Use the installation Wizard to find the camera and it's IP.
Your firewall is blocking the stream. Try disabling it and reconnecting.
Your cameras IP is not in the range of the DHCP server of the router it's connected to. Review your router's DHCP list to see if the camera IP is in that range.
The password on the camera is corrupt. You will need to hard reset the camera and reset it back up from scratch to connect.

Worst comes to worse, you can always just hard reset the camera and start over.

Reset the camera by holding the reset button for 3 seconds (use a paper clip in the hole marked "Reset" on the back). The camera will then reset to all default settings, including an IP address of 192.168.0.20.
