Wireless home webcam

by JJohnson / December 1, 2004 5:39 AM PST

I would like to set up a webcam in my house to be able to view through the internet. The cam would not be in the same room as my PC. I am currently using a Netware wireless router. What do I need to buy and how do I set this up? I am on a budget.

Dlink and Linksys make such a camera.

Another solution is to get hold of a cheap wireless usb camera. Connect the receiver with your PC via USB connection and set up a web server on a free server site. Then you can monitor your video/images using internet. You can also record all the footage on your PC.
