Summary: The reason I purchased this webcam was to set it up on my new baby's crib so the folks back in Dallas could tune in to see him whenever they wanted. For all intensive purposes, it has served its purpose.
Summary: the cam isnt too bad. when its finally programmed, its pretty dependable. HOWEVER thefact that there is an active x control with a certificate expired un july of 09, and STILL no fix from linksys for something easy to fix puts into question their WHOLE support structure.
Summary: The camera was easy to set up and worked on the first try. Image quality is fine given the relatively low price. A number of cheaper wireless cameras don't support WPA encryption, but this one does.
Summary: I got this as a way to monitor my children while they are in their room without having to sit at their doorway all the time. Granted you can't see every hair on their head, you can see enough to keep them safe.
Summary: The price is very good considering the features. All the features work it is just a matter of setting up a public IP and port on your router. If playing with Router settings comes easy to you then this is a great buy. If you are not Tech savy then do not bother.
Summary: People are giving this product a bad review and spreading misinformation about it. The setup was very easy and it worked as they advertised. Yes it is an ActiveX control and that is a very bad idea. However, it does work with other DDNS services such as DynDNS.
Install was a pain, but cam up and running --love it!

Summary: I have read many other reviews here regarding this camera, and have come to the conclusion that the majority of complaints regarding this camera have to do with setting up on this camera on your wifi router; the complaints are really about another product (the router), not the camera itself.
Summary: I am doing research for school dealing with networks and video. I am a mac user so I bought this camera and was able to view the camera using a mac work around. It is not 100% stable but it works. I also have windows on my mac but the camera works just fine.
Summary: The reviews that state the picture quality as awful, are not exaggerating...the fact that this camera is wireless is a plus. Setup was not as easy as the basic instructions depict, but after spending some time on the phone with India, I got the router/wireless system underway.
Summary: I use this to keep an eye on my dogs who stay in our downstairs hallway during the day. The camera's resolution is indeed low, but I can see my whole hallway illuminated with only 3 75 Watt recessed ceiling lights, and I can see that both my dogs are there and whether they are sleeping, playing or...
