Summary: I purchased two of these cameras. They are new to the Linksys product line. They are not inexpensive. However, compared to all the other wireless-g cameras available, these are good and reasonably priced. (Note, I had tried another brand of wireless-g camera, and had written a review on it.
Summary: I've reviewed this camera before* (I guess Amazon is making me review my recent purchase). I said good & bad things last time - those still hold. But, having used it for months, I have more criticisms. I use the "Kiwi Syslog Daemon" with both cameras.
Summary: Wireless setup needs a numerical code, no letters for some reason. I setup my WRT54G on WPA w/ an 8+ digit number to generate a key. Do all of this wired at first, then test it wireless. I use a fixed IP for the cam, so I can managed it directly from on my network. The DNS server I use is DynDNS.
Pros: I think this wireless PTZ is fairly decent for the price. It does have its issues which drive everyone crazy, but it does work. The ohana in Hawaii can chase the grandson around in Texas fine.
Cons: Color is off slightly in low light. I use cool white bulbs in the living room. WPA needs numbers no special characters or letters. FTP setup does not need a File Path Name. Need to refresh page a few times to get mangagement/view image page to show properly.
Summary: I have had this unit in service for over 2 years as a remote monitoring camera at my vacation home. The unit works very well and delivers better than average video quality for a web cam. I have not had any operational issues with the unit. I am using the wireless to connect to my router.
Summary: Cam came exactly when they said. I like the range of motion. I'm not sure how good the wireless range is: I've seen people have issues with the range but, I have the antenna horizontal (hidden from view) and it's 30'+ from the router (G) through 2 walls and it works just fine.
Summary: I had the earlier version of the linksys video camera, the one that had a fixed lens. That one you could never get to work wirelessly period. The PTZ at least is doable - you can get it to work wirelessly with considerable effort setting up your router and the occasional reboot but bottomline these...
Does the job, but does not look good--Only one way audio

Summary: It is a good product and does what is requested to do. The wizard is a bit complicated compare to other Cisco models. however, i missed the following: 1- IT does not look good 2- It is not quiet. moving the lense cause some noise 3- Audio is only one way from Camera to end user.
Summary: Cam is good, however hope this helps with others setting this up; 1 - Could only get it to work on WEP 2 - Once you set up the port, you can access it external using you IP address and adding :1024 (or whatever the port number is) 3 - Use a fixed IP address
