Summary: First of all... for $100, this is a good camera. Second, plenty of light near the camera lense (not necessary the subject) gives you the best picture. Third, though not unique to this camera, be aware that any internet camera might be difficult to setup because your ISP may block the needed port. Good luck!
Summary: I have been using this new G series DCS 900 for about three months; it is is much better than the older B series cameras on my network. This one runs much cooler, has never "locked-up" and has the option that it can be viewed with or without a password (password still required to access internal settings). A greatly improved and much more robust product.
Summary: I bought four of these. 1 works as advertised, 1 only works only wired (never sees any wireless networks), 1 works intermittently (doesn't often link up to the wireless network), and the last was DOA (doesn't hook up to either wired or wireless networks). I think D-link sent them out a bit early; HW revision A1 & firmware revision 001. As usual, D-link's support is pretty much non-existent and there are no firmware or other updates available.
Summary: Mac users: of course the included setup wizard and management software are useless as they are written for Windows. However, after some bumbling about, I managed to get the DCS-G900 up and running on my eMac running MacOS 10.3.9. I happen to have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router for my network (not that it probably matters much) and simply plugged the camera into an open ethernet port.
Summary: Flakey, like nearly all of D-Link's wireless products. Some days it works, connecting fine to the Dlink WPA-PSK router I have, and sometimes it won't connect at all. The 100mb/s wired ethernet always works, though, and works very well. A nice wired camera, that sometimes will do wireless as well.
Summary: I've read the other reviews and am surprised. Mine works great both wireless and wired. Perhaps one of the problems is that people look for a wireless signal when it is in the wired mode for setup. The device turns the wireless off when connected via the ethernet cable so you can't continue with the wireless setup until you disconnect the ethernet cable. Other than that it works great on my network which uses WPA security.
For the price and quality of this camera, you can't go wrong!!

Summary: I purchased the DCS-G900 in August and it works as advertised. It can be accessed and administered with just your web browser (type the camera's IP address into the address bar), or you can use the IPView Lite SE that comes with the camera to gain some extra features like Motion Detection, multiple camera control (up to 4) within the same IPView window and the ability to rotate the image 90 degrees (the internal camera settings will allow you to only mirror and\or flip...
