Summary: Holy Cow, what a time consuming affair. Start by networking camera(s). To do that, plug in hard wired to router then once set up, registered, firmware updated, then go to advanced settings and make wireless. Once your PC can see the cameras, install this and update firmware. Then install cameras.
Summary: Starting at 3 stars because it worked and now it doesn't. I have a single camera (2132L) connected IP and when I first installed the DNR-322L NVR it found the camera, I was able to setup recording and everything was fine. Record and playback were what I expected.
install manual is sparse and tech support seemingly nonexistent

Summary: Device is not picking up my dlink camera on the Network, I thought these were made to work together. I've gone thru the wizard installers from different download links, reset and reinstalled it various times. I've scoured the forums for help since there doesn't seem to be a tech support phone.
Summary: ar004295 This item works well after it is properly set up. The set-up part was tricky for me, and I consider myself fairly computer savvy. The product is supposed to search for and find D-Link cameras when using the setup wizard.
Summary: I would not purchase this again. . .bandwidth hog and configuration is not intuitive but got it worked out after a couple hours. . .would not order again simply due to the bandwidth use - not sure if it is this device or the cameras associated with it, but I'll stick with my vuezone camera setup if...
Summary: It was a bit difficult to set up. Make sure you download the latest firmware. That would have saved me a lot of time, but fortunately support was great. There's two different sets of firmware, so if you don't hunt it down, just call tech support and they'll steer you towards the right one.
I read all the bad reviews for the D-Link products

Summary: I read all the bad reviews for the D-Link products, but decided to go with them anyway. I am pleased that I did! I will say the setup is tricky and not for the faint of heart. I added the DNR-202L to the system and I needed help.
Summary: UPDATE: This will leaving you hanging when it matters most! Just absolutely needed the camera footage for the police. It won't even load the webpage so we can get to the hard drive video. Total piece of garbage! Don't wait your time. Pros: It's cheap and entertaining. Small and easy to tuck away.
Required firmware upgrade for it to recognize DLink 932L cameras
V Sharma, Amazon
25 January 2015
Summary: It works well now but there was some issue doing the initial setup - it did not recognize the 932L cameras. This was due to my firmware version on the 202L being outdated. It was v1.01 out of box, and v1.02 is required for recognition.
