Wvc54 tzo not updating
That seems fine, until after about a half hour of trying, I couldn’t make the 1.1 camera connect to my wireless. Much tinkering, taking the thing apart, making sure the wireless card was seated, e.t.c. I remembered how much of a hassle the previous release was and how flashing to some strange German version of the firmware and then back made wireless magically work.
Amazingly, Linksys doesn’t keep a nice repo around (or, at least I couldn’t find one, perhaps there’s an FTP dump somewhere).
You do not need to install the software; just insert the CD and tell the camera to get an IP address automatically (DHCP).
If you buy the camera from the Mi Casa Verde web shop we do this before we ship it so the camera will work out of the box.
For the moment, I left it nacked, standing next to a wireless access point. It used to be the only cheap IP camera, below 100€ back then.
Since my Pi won't be connected to a screen nor to a keyboard, I prefer a fixed IP so that I don't have to [email protected] ~ $ ip addr show eth0 2: eth0: mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000 link/ether b:eb:10:a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 192.168.1.64/24 brd 192.168.1.255 scope global eth0 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever [email protected] ~ $ netstat -nr Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 [email protected] /etc/network $ sudo vi interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback # iface eth0 inet dhcp iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.6 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_iface default inet dhcp To watch what's going on in my backyard, I'll plug an old Linksys Wireless-G Compact Internet Video Camera WVC54GC.
I have a feeling that Linksys hasn’t completely nailed down the configuration settings/supplicant for that Ralink card they have in there, or that the open source drivers just aren’t that great.
I strongly suspect this is partly the reason for the introduction of the WVC80N, although reviews do look promising. This entry was posted by Brian on January 20, 2010 at am, and is filled under Documents, Don't Hate, Gadgets. You can leave a response or trackback from your own site.
I flashed back to 1.00 R24, and immediately was able to connect.
Vera will add the camera automatically and fill in the settings.
