It could have been usable...

 

This webcam is fairly useless and I can't recommend it unless you happen to need to use it in a perfectly light-favorable environment and you only ever plan to use Windows with IE for browsing, since it doesn't seem to support anything else. Nor can it...

Consumer review by:

not to bad, but basic

 

Great for the money, but I think it is out of production.

No sound.

Consumer review by:

Too much light, too little glory

 

I received the WVC11B as a used gift. Although the disc was missing for the software installation the Linksys tech support was very helpful and pointed me right to place on their FTP server where I could download the entire contents of the CD. Once I ...

Consumer review by:

You can do better

 

Grabbed one of these to monitor some expensive equipment in a semi-public place. Figured for $120 or so it'd be a deal. The camera itself is a swiveling camera/lens assembly on a back panel. The lens (if you'd call it that) isn't much, maybe 3mm ...

Product Specifications

The Linksys Wireless-B Internet Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world! This compact, self-contained unit lets you keep an eye on your home, your kids, your workplace - whatever's important to you. Unlike standard "web cams" that require an attached PC, the Internet Video Camera contains its own web server, so it can connect directly to a network, either over Wireless-B (802.11b) networking, or over 10/100 Ethernet cable. The advanced MPEG-4 video compression produces a high-quality, high-framerate, 320 x 240 video stream. The Internet Video Camera's unique form-factor and wireless connectivity allows you to mount it on a wall nearly anywhere, or slip it into its included stand for desktop use. Once it's connected to your home network, you can "see what it sees" from any PC in the house, while the video stream is secured from the outside world, hidden behind your Router. If you want the video to be visible from outside your home network, you can open an appropriate port on the Router, and then create password-protected accounts to manage access to the Camera, or leave it wide open for the world to see. The SoloLink DDNS Service (trial sign-up included) lets you access your Camera using an easy-to- remember "name", even if your home Internet connection uses a dynamic IP address. You can also turn on Security Mode, which tells the Camera to send you an e-mail message with a short video attached whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log onto the live video stream if the situation warrants. The included Viewer & Recorder utility lets you record the video stream to your local hard drive, "live" or on a predetermined schedule. Let the Linksys Wireless-B Internet Video Camera help you keep tabs on your world.
