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.

SOURCE: IP camera keeps resets itself
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

The D-Link DCS-3220 have DHCP, that means it gets a automatic address from your router.
IT doesent have a STATIC ip, if you not set it manually.
To configure your D-Link DCS-3220 CAM and find the IP you need to install this program.
Install Wizard You need to unpack it first.
Connect your computer and cam to same router and run the program. Then it should find your cam so you can configure it and see what ip it get your you set.
Then you can browser to the cams IP.

Here is Quick install guide
Here is you Dlink cam site to get firmware updates and more.

and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dlink

Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Look for Manuals.
The IP address to put in your browser to get into the router is: 192.168.0.1
The default userid is: admin
There is not default password, so leave it blank.
