Summary: I purchased a few of these cameras to keep an eye on my dogs and the house while away. After reading the reviews, I didn't even bother installing the software. If all you want to do is see what's happening NOW via a web browser, then there's no need for the security software anyway.
Summary: Actually, at this point in time the camera is $89. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and have ordered 3 more. I have several Pansonic BL-C131a cameras and like them a lot. But even at the $240 price they are going for now, I'd rather have more cameras than Pan/Tilt capability.
Summary: Overall the this wireless camera is good, and works with Macs - although it is not supported, once you know the default IP address you can set up the camera with any web browser really, and the PC software is only truly necessary if you have several of those.
Summary: I just installed the camera during the weekend. All the features works. I am using an old Netgear MR814 wireless router. The DSL provider is ATT (original SBC global). Here are some hints to make it work: 1. Your wireless router doesn't need to be on the Linksys approved list.
Summary: This is a good camera. Given that you can access it over the internet (either via a browser or the supplied utility), it's very cool, especially for the price. I recommend it. Support is good too - you get a fairly well-trained live person in just a few minutes of wait time.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive wireless camera in order to watch over my front door throughout the day. This camera fit the description and was a good price, comparatively. I got the camera, hooked it up to my wireless network, and immediately saw the video stream on my computer.

Summary: If interacting with your router is frightening this is not the product you are looking for. ------------------ included software cd NOT required to setup camera! Amazon shipped this with firmware R24 which is the latest to date so it is also likely the latest hardware.
Summary: The picture is good, but it bogs down a wireless router a bit. Also instructions for setup could be better. As other reviewers have said, it is not plug and play!! After reading the instructions and piecing together other reviewers comments and getting help from the TZO site I got it to work.
Summary: It works. I am using it for a simple application, a kitty-cam, to watch the kittens while I am out of the room. I wish it had a wide-angle lens, but all in all, it does what I paid for it to do.
Summary: I got this camera this week, and so far, so good. Installation using a Mac was a breeze. The key is not to use the installation CD from LinkSys, but to go straight to the web page. This is accomplished by first plugging the camera into a hard-wired ethernet port on a router, then finding out what IP...
