not so plug'n'play
Double IT fail today. Five hours and little progress. 1. My webcam doesn't work with the super long USB extension cable. I am returning the cable - it cost 100 bucks! However, the webcam still works still works fine with my 75' cable. 2. Configuring through a hard line and mounting it was a snap but I can't get the new weathercam to communicate wirelessly with my router. I am pretty sure it has to do with a setting in the router but I just can't figure it out. That isn't too horrible of an issue because I have a long enough ethernet cable to run the line - if I can just find it. I didn't get to the point of setting it up with WeatherUnderground - hopefully there won't be any issues there. 86,95,76,0,B
