Summary: I bought this camera and had it setup wirelessly in about 5 minutes. Very easy to view the picture as all you have to do is type in 192.168.0.20 into your browser anywhere on your network. Was also easy to setup with WEP encryption. Great Buy overall, and highly recommended.
Summary: I have a DCS1000W network camera that stopped working about a year after I bought it. When I called Dlink about repair they said it was out of warranty (which I already knew) and that they had no repair facility. When I asked them how to get it repaired, the answer was "we do not repair them" just throw it away and buy a new one. An expensive lesson..............
Summary: Ok, I bought this camera to watch my kid in a room while they were asleep. I'm telling you this camera barely shows anything in anything but full light conditions. Horrible. If there is light though, it does ok, hence the 2 star rating. But low light conditions, 0 star. This camera also has buggy software and will not accept your router configuration completely.
Summary: First the good. The camera is very easy to setup, and the picture is nice. Now the bad. The frame rate is terrible. I have yet to see 20fps on any setting. At 640X480, I get 1.5fps average. I have a DI-624 as my wireless router, and I am very familiar with setting it up, so I don't think this is the problem. Another annoying thing is that the frame rate is very inconsistant. One time I had the camera at 11fps.
Summary: The installation of this camera is simply plugging it into a wall socket and either accessing its web based interface via it's IP address wirelessly or wired. Then from there you can set everything, like FTP upload times, new IP address, picture quality, etc. After configuring it all the way I wanted I unplugged it from my PC and the wall and mounted it where it was going to stay. After mounting I plugged it into the wall and thats it.
Summary: With all the features this thing has it is no wonder it is this price. I am sure the price will go down soon. I have a wireless network and I thought it would be real cool to actually have a camera that did everything itself and didn't need a wired connection to my network. I just set it by a plug and it connects to my network with little work at all.
