Amazon prime has foscam on gold box deal right now. $60 for 720p. I have two of that model and one higher resolution. With $5 Android or iPhone app makes great security or pet cam. Pan/tilt and night vision included.

don't have any problem running mine wireless- have to configure on wired (update the firmware yo) then configure wirless and re-boot it with no wired connection.

okay set up one I ordered from deal. UPgrading firmware is a PITA (have to go version by version from here: http://foscam.us/firmware) but after final upgrade wifi is working fine, even out in the garage where I put that one:

living room and garage are running wireless, all 3 are different "models".

Oh if you want to get rid of it, I will also buy it for what you paid, I am very happy with them so far, though I only played with one recording events and stuff, otherwise just use to monitor in real time.

got it working fine had to change wireless to wpa instead of wep. now my damn skybell dont work and cant resync and when i look through troublshooting it specifically says foscams create some type of interference on the network and wont allow it to sync. if its not one thing its another haha
