Summary: It was a decent camera in it's day (circa 2005), but quite limited compared to technology of 2013. It doesn't even support 802.11N which is pretty much the standard for wireless internet today and only supports 11Mps wired Ethernet compared to other cameras that are at least 100Mps standard today. This camera is so obsolete now that Dlink doesn't even show it on their product pages anymore.
Summary: The cameras (4 of them) work well with my Mac using SecuritySpy software. I have been using the cameras for a few years, and they all still work just fine. I have had some problems though. The wireless cameras were prone to locking up and 'stalling' until unplugged and restarted, so I ran Cat-5 cable to all of them. One in a remote location, over 100 feet from my router has power sent through the cable.
Summary: I have had this camera for 6 years... just bought another one. I also own a Linksys WVC54GC. I recommend this camera as it is easy to configure on a secure WEP 64 network and has a java OR Active X interface. A key problem with the Linksys WVC54GC is that is only works in active X. So for example when I use my Opera browser on my WII (the big screen) or my MAC.. only my DLink can show the image.. You could say linksys is not MAC friendly.
Summary: This camera has been discontinued by D-Link. It will not work with Silverlight, XP service pack 2, or Vista. Mine wouldn't even be recognized by my router (but I think that mine was defective). Unless you have legacy hardware (Pentium III, Windows 98SE, etc) I wouldn't buy this camera. And the D-Link tech support is free, but I waited two hours to talk to someone, who got my model # and then the phone disconnected.
Summary: We have had this camera for a year now and between the manufacturer and the enclosed set-up literature, it is a disaster. Between the arcane set up references, no clear set up path, misinformed instructions, and clueless 'technical support' it is not for the faint of heart. Simply put: You had better be a geek to use it.
Summary: this works pretty well. It is a low priced camera and works like one. It needs a good light source. it can only be mounted as it looks in the picture, the mount does not give you much movement to get it completely turned 90 degrees either way to the side.
Summary: I have tried this product with PC and MAC(leopard) I found no problem. I can say that the image quality is a bit low with MAC but it works fine. I recommend to everybody. You can even use it as a security camera!
Summary: This isn't so much a review of the camera itself, as it is information on a way to resolve what I consider to be the camera's biggest downside (other cameras too!). This might get a little wordy though. In reading some of these reviews, I notice that a lot of people have trouble understanding Networking technology (BIG surprise), causing them to suffer through tech support calls. But, knowing even a few basics, can help avoid having to make that dreaded call...
Summary: This camera failed to work from the moment I plugged it in. The lights flashed virtually at random... the power light would sometimes blink on and off, sometimes it would stay solid. The ethernet light would blink once every minute or so at some times, and at others, even when it wasn't plugged into anything, it would stay solid. After a brief conversation with their technical support staff, it was determined that my product was defective.
