Cisco/Linksys should pull this from the market until the software is updated

Summary: This would be a great product if it worked as advertised. It doesn't work with Windows 8.1 (and I presume 8.0 which has been out for a year and a half now). I'm a web developer in my day job and so am very comfortable with computers though I don't know a lot about the details of networking.
Summary: I own (8) of these cameras. When they worked, initially, they were great. Motion detection worked and got emails. Then something happened and all that stopped working. It seems to have coincided with DYN DNS service getting bought out.
Summary: May need port forwarding or other nslookup ip address of mail server plugged in. There is a six page long thread on Linksys support forum on this issue. Havent had enough time to mess with it. PO it took two hours so far and not working yet.
Pros: Swivel mount. Black color.
Cons: Need computer to install and configure cam. Forget about your iPad. Trying to setup wifi is a real pain. Took an hour of effort to just get it to show up in the network. Email configuration does not work and does not work with mail server. lnstall on CD has non working link for remote management ...
Summary: I bought this camera some time ago to monitor my dogs at home while I'm at work. It has done the job well for me for about a year, but it's about time to replace it for a more feature-rich camera...
Summary: A bit tricky to set up, once it's working, it's great. I use the motion detection feature, which allows recording several seconds before and after motion ends. I'm able to have the camera write directly to a networked drive wirelessly.
Summary: I spent 3+ hours with Linksys customer support to get it to work. in the end , It only worked when wired, and Linksys deemed it defective, so I returned the camera to NewEgg. Even if it had worked, I would not give it a 5 star for the difficulty of setting it up and for the narrow angle of view -...
Cons: narrow angle of view, extremely difficult setup.
Summary: Setup is performed through an Ethernet port on the rear of the camera. After that the network cable is disconnected and the camera can be used anywhere there's a power source. I used an extension cord to power mine hidden on top of a kitchen cabinet.
Pros: The camera works perfectly on my home network after I set up a static IP address. Lens clarity is acceptable but not like what I'm used to seeing with a digital camera, but for the price and considering the low light capability it's good enough. I like the fact that recordings can be started manu...
Cons: The Linksys setup software is clunky but they make it that way in an attempt to simplify a somewhat complicated product. The angle of view is not as wide as I'd like but if it were then subjects would appear smaller.
Doesn't work as it should, NO support and Linksys said it was out of Warranty!

Summary: This camera does not work as it should, too many issues to list. At Linksys I got transferred too many times, they tried to send me off to Cisco but Cisco doesn't support this (even though Cisco is all over the box and product).
Summary: If you have an iOS device and want to configure it, forget it. If you have a Mac and want to see the actual camera images, forget it. This camera is NOT compatible with anything outside the Windows ecosystem, and therefore it is useless for many people.
Can't be accessed from any modern browser and Linksys won't fix it.

Summary: Can't be viewed from current iPhone, Android, Safari, Chrome, or Firefox browsers because the webpage it serves is faulty. The product seriously needs a firmware update but linksys doesn't appear to be providing one. (I'm guessing it works in IE on windows.
