    Thought I'd just share this.

    It seems a WVC200 has trouble connecting to an AP with Wireless Media Extensions (or is it Multimedia Extensions) turned on. I tried forever to connect it to a WRT54GL running Tomato with WMM on, and also a Netgear DG834GT, and the WVC acts like it gets a lot of interference on the wireless if it connects at all. Then I connected it to a GL with stock firmware no problem. Trial and error on Tomato - WMM off fixed it.
    (WVC200 with firmware 1.1.0).

    Somebody asked somewhere (can't find the post again) how to access the media stream on the WVC200. I accessed the MPEG (I think) stream with VLC media player (VideoLAN) as http://url.of.wvc200/img/video.asf You have to supply authentication information/credentials as for http (username/password).
    (My Windoze Media Player seems not capable of playing this stream).
