I am using it as a remote webcam. Check my basement when I am on the third floor, or in the office.
WiFi is not working at my place. Only when I use very simple password, such as 12345678, WiFi encrypt WPA will work. Even I use a all letter password, it failed. I spended a whole week to contact the support staff of TRENDnet. Finally, I have to say, I give up WiFi. I use wired connecting now.
