How do I set an administrator (admin) password on my DCS‑2136L?

Note: mydlink Cloud Service registration requires the admin password.

Step 1: Open a web browser and enter the IP address of your camera in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.20). If you do not know the IP address of your camera, please refer to the section entitled “How do I find the IP address of my DCS-2136L and access the web-based user interface?” in this FAQ. Press Enter.

Step 2: The username for the administrator account is admin. Enter your administrator password in the password field. If you have not changed this from the default, leave this field blank. Click OK.
