Summary: I had my technician install the internet camera and the technican could not get it to work. I returned the camera and was charged a $12 restock fee. I didn't think that was fair, since the camera cost $40. I will never shop there again.
Summary: The camera needs to be rebooted once every couple of days. Not very dependable at all. I bought it 6 months ago with Firmware 1.07. My other DCS-6620g works fine...both running wireless connections. Once I update it with Firmware 1.08 (released 5/5/2009) I will revise my review.
Works as described...if you know what you're doing.

Summary: As I read product reviews, not just for this item but for other technology items, it occurs to me that many of the comments describing difficulty are often from people who likely don't understand basic networking principles.
Summary: Both the camera and the software are poor. It is obvious that they have not been tested well before release. DLink D-ViewCam does not always autodetect the camera on the network. You can only access the camera using Internet Explorer.
Summary: I got this camera 3 months back and had it running continuously. I was very pleased with the product TILL several days back. The video screen just went black. Rebooting the camera only got me the "Camera Server Error!" and a black screen at where the video screen is supposed to be.
Summary: These are great cameras for the price, but are never as easy to install as the instructions indicate. Plus, support comes from overseas and the support personnel are not always fluent in English making it even more difficult. This is especially true when they are using scripts to try and help you.
Summary: Dont waste your time. I brought this and right out the box I had issues with the camera's server. It worked for a short time then when I went to relocate it to where I really wanted it it didnt work anymore. D-Link customer service was OK. They take for ever to get to the phone.
Summary: I am pretty sure that having Vista caused some problems, but I am not really sure. Technical Support was no help and even suggested I return it. Went with a Lynksis instead and it works a lot better and smoother.
