Summary: Dont bother with this cam. DLink no longer provides support, and it took 15 hours to setup (and I know computers well!). Impossible to set up if your not computer proficient. Wireless sucks, hard to set up and range is poor.
Summary: I purchased this camera based on the salesman recommendation. He said that I can easily use this camera and view the images from a different computer. To start things off: I inserted the CD Rom into the drive and it didn't recognize my camera.
Summary: I bought this camera to test it as a security camera for a store I own. The camera sounds good if you look at all the features it has but when I hooked it up I found the software to be pretty bad.
Buggy and Difficult Installation but DLink Got It Working

Summary: I would give this product a three star rating. The DCS 2100+ started out worse than a plague of locusts. To be fair, I am reporting the final result. A Senior Level Technician at DLink figured out the problem and with download of the latest update to the application software (IP Surveillance) the...
Summary: Even after an upgrade to the newest firmware, the wireless connection was buggy. The included "IP configuration" tool never found the camera even after it had obtained an IP address from my router. I had to use the DHCP table from my router to find the camera's IP address.
Summary: I am an experienced IT guy, but this camera has me tearing my hair out! First, a major warning: the spec sheet states that the camera can take 640x480 pics. This is NOT TRUE - the maximum available resolution is 320x240.
Summary: First, I'm a computer guy. They pay me to do this kind of thing. Except I write software, I don't configure LANs. So I needed to call tech support because the camera was on a different subnet by default and their documentation, though long, was very lacking in advanced configuration.
Summary: Bought this for use as a baby monitor; as it turns out, when we close the curtains and turn off the lights for her daytime nap, it gets so dark that the camera is useless. We didn't think it wsa that dark, but color cameras need a decent amount of light to work with, and much more than you'd think.
Brought 2 of them, since there is really nothing out there

Summary: That can compare in this cam in terms of spec. I didn't have a chance to open the second box yet, but whatever the reason, the build in web browser freezes every 15m or so when it is in WiFi mode. I'm on phone with their technical support right now.
Summary: At first I was skeptical about the price being so high and the camera didn't look very solid. But now that I've gotten to hold it in my hand I can tell it was constructed well enough for what it does.
