    OK found out the answer...

    This camera is an OEM FOSCAM FI8908W.

    USE ONLY the FOSCAM FI8908W firmware.
    I have copy the firmwares for this camera at the following link if you want to upgrade to the Latest Firmware / 2.4.8.


    How to do it??? Its quite simple actually...

    The cam will come with a very old fw.

    What you need to do is to upgrade? Basically upgrade from Upgrade 1 to Final Upgrade.
    Dont jump queue... Slowly upgrade step by step.

    CMOS Web UI < - Upgrade 1 < - Upgrade 2 < - Upgrade 3 < - Final Upgrade

    ALWAYS UPGRADE the CMOS FW first then the WEB UI FW..
    Dont use WIFI to do the upgrade.. USE CABLE!!!

    I have successful upgraded over 10 sets without any issue..

    So enjoy! Do Email me at cheongking @ hotmail . com if you need any help..
