Summary: ...but that's what customer support is for. To make a long story short, after finally getting a hold of someone that spoke english, I was told to call ATT and then call them back. After calling back with ATT's instructions and still not getting any results, I was finally told by these "extremely helpful" individuals that "oh yeah" you have an ATT modem and yo cannot get a static IP address with them, I would have to purchase a static IP address from ATT if they would...
Ip Camera Works Great, but set up needs a little more information

Summary: TRENDnet TV-IP212W Wireless Internet Camera Server with 2-Way Audio The package came quick, everything was accounted for. The initial set up of this camera was a different story. If you are not familiar with dealing with wireless routers, setting up port forwarding, and assigning MAC addresses, find someone who is.
Summary: Video quality is great in well light areas. However the camera often requires re-connecting power to work again after changing certain settings. It also not working well with RTSP 3GPP streaming to 3G mobile phone. Trendnet needs to fix these bugs before selling this camera.
Buggy video playback & useless security capture software

Summary: First off let me say that the video quality was very good (as good as these types of camera's get anyway). Network setup was about average, documentation was terrible. If you have setup your own home network before, then setting this up will give you no trouble. Problems: 1) Camera & software useless for automatic recording of events. Takes too long to start video capture\recording.
Summary: The appearances of this camera looks very nice, however, it's a bit difficult to install. It is viewed thru an IP address that you have to setup manually and their technical support isn't much help either if anything goes wrong. Don't get your hopes up with the quality of the image because it's no better than a good ol' fashion $30 webcam. I had to return it because of too much hassle to install and very dissapointed at the image quality.
Summary: First off I am an engineer so I am not saying my mom could set this up ...wanted to make sure I mentioned that) Have a new puppy and I wanted a petcam (more than just the pic uploaded via ftp like I had)... I wanted wifi so I could move it around, 2 way audio(so we could hear barking and in the future call the dog to come to the cam), and decent video. I have DSL with a linksys 54g and easily setup port forwarding etc.
