I have a WVC54G. Originally, I had the camera networked through a NetGear router secured with WEP. The first camera had to be replaced after about 6 months when it started crashing every week. Linksys sent the replacement without any problems. Except for conditions where the light wasn't optimal, the camera was pretty good, its image was acceptable, and the video was reasonably fast.

Then I upgraded to a Linksys WRT54GX2, and moved from WEP to WPA. The camera would connect if the router was unsecured, or if I used WEP, but not with WPA. After hours on the phone and 3 replacement cameras, a support person mentioned that there was a known bug with WPA and the camera.

To make a very long story short - I finally got to speak with an engineer in the US, who tested the camera with the same model of router and informed me that there is a defect with the WVC54G and the WRT54GX2 MIMO router. After a bit of negotiation, I got Linksys to commit to replacing my defective camera with the WCV200, but first the engineer wanted to test the camera with a MIMO router. Unfortunately, the WVC200 suffers from the same defect and WILL NOT connect with a MIMO Linksys router using WPA.

So here I am with a WVC54G that's no better than a paper weight. Linksys has offered to refund my purchase, but since I no longer have my original receipt, I'm not sure where that offer stands.

Has anyone else attempted this combination of camera and router ?
