I just got this camera a few days ago and now I found out that the activeX control that is
needed to access the camera through a web browser came with an activeX control that
has an expired security certificate.
An IP camera that is considered unsafe to access by most web browsers. Nice!
I figured out how to get Internet Explorer to install the control anyways, but how about
the less computer savvy rest of my family?
Linksys tech support could not give me an ETA when this issue will be addressed. Unreal..

Click the tools menu , then internet options . Then click the security tab . Select custom level . Look for the entry Download unsigned active x controls and Download signed active x controls . Select Enable/Prompt for both . Click OK , then OK again . Close internet explorer . Go to the ip you assigned for the camera & now you should be able to download the active x control .
Once you download & install the control & your able to view the video then go back to tools & set the internet security back to the default setting . Close your browser so the settings take effect .
You should now be good to go .

as I wrote, I was able to figure out how to make this work.
But try to explain this to my 72 year old, computer illiterate father!
I know it sounds fairly easy to get this to work, but if you're not
"good" with computers it's a pain. Trust me. I've tried to have a
friend access that camera and he's still not able to install that ocx.
I made a new web page to access the camera that uses Windows
Media Player to view the camera instead, so hopefully this will
