Active X issues

Mike, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: Good solid build, the pan/tilt motor is really loud. I had to return it due to it's incompatibility with my Macs as it will only work with Internet Explorer. PC setup had problems too,I was only able to log in once or twice to the IP that was assigned. there was a problem with the active X plugin that was failing to install, tried on 4 PCs.

Setup difficult

J. Malte Stoeckhert, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a couple of these cameras to set up a home system and setup is a pain. Although overall nice cameras very buggy. I use a Linksys WRT600N router with TKIP and was able to set up one camera wireless with no problem. The other 2 to no avail. In the end the problem boiled down to shorten the security key to 8 spaces which was no problem with the first camera... Strange. If you like to tinker this is for you.

Questionable Quality - Linksys Customer Support Leaves Much to be Desired

Richard B. Pritchett, Amazon
31 March 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this camera as a baby monitor & grandparents camera. It works OK, but beware a few issues: 1. Although Linksys tells you it is Vista compatible, it isn't really. You can view the camera through any IE web browser, but if you want to view recorded video clips or use the Linksys recording/monitoring utility, don't plan on using Windows Vista. I've been arguing with Linksys since I received this camera over this issue.

Camera is full-featured. BUT Windows only. Macs & Linux beware

unixkernel "unixkernel", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera doesn't explicity advertise that you need IE 5.5 to use the features that the camera is packed with. Nice unit. But you can't get there from here if you are running a Mac (IE 5.2 is the highest available there), or if you use Firefox, Safari, Mozilla or others. Linksys needs to wise up and go cross-platform compatible. The camera has too many nice features to keep it all in Windows.

Mooi apparaat. Goede beeld kwaliteit krijg hem wireless niet aan de praat...

BESLIST

  • Summary: Mooi apparaat. Goede beeld kwaliteit krijg hem wireless niet aan de praat met de KPN Experia box. Maar dat zal wel aan de Experia Box liggen. Kent helaas ook niet alle draadloze encrypties. De bij geleverde software werkt niet met Vista. Dat beperkt de mogelijkheden aanzienlijk Vind je deze beoordeling nuttig?
