    I've recently installed a WVC200 camera, and for the first few weeks everything worked really wonderfully.

    I was checking my camera from work one day; and noticed that I would make a connection, but would never get the initial logon page for the camera. Checking the router logs showed the request being forwarded over to the camera. I'm using the DynDns service to provide dynamic DNS.

    When I get home, I checked the camera from a pc hardwired to the router, and sure enough got right through. I used the same URL at home that I did in the office, accessing the camera over my external IP address (instead of the NAT'd address on my lan).

    After rebooting the camera, and having the same problem, I decided to check the router. Turning off the SPI firewall was no help.

    I rebooted the router, and sure enough got right in. (Linksys REALLY needs to put a remote restart on the routers admin pages) That lasted for a day or two before the same problem started again.

    This time, I've tried turning off wireless QoS, and that seems to have fixed the problem - at least for now.

    Any idea why QoS would cause these kinds of problems, and more importantly, why would I be able to access the camera from home, but not outside ?

    Firmware version? V1.1.0 seems to be the latest.

    I assume your routing/NATting/port forwarding etc. are all OK? However, something seems really wrong with the wireless supplicant on this cam, so if you are running it wirelessly....
