The 2.4 should have none of those problems, and should also have a better range with better picture, but I haven't tested those yet, but when my new wifitank is running, that will be the next thing I replace on it.
Something I recently bought with the intent of using it on my UGV project in the future was this:http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=BLK-9100A-PLUS-N&cat=VIDIt allows you to plug in four regular cameras (composite video) and view them via a built-in webserver over wired ethernet. Its powered off of a 5V 1A DC wall-wart (cameras are powered separately). Since my UGV has an 802.11g router/hub, I can easily plug it in (and power won't be an issue, since I'll have some fairly large 12 volt SLAs on-board). Something to play with, anyhow!
I got one of those (just in metal chasing), but the original firmware on them sux, so instead I uploaded the yoics 9100a firmware instead.
With the new firmware there are password protection, but only way to see the images is then to log in.
Out of curiosity, bld, how did you get the video output from one of those camera's on the web?
