    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 11.14.2.28 / 2.4.8.

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9429009/foscam.zip

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

    The cam will come with a very old fw.
    DO NOT UPGRADE DIRECT to 11.14.2.28 / 2.4.8.15

    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
    11.14.1.42 2.4.8.11 < - Upgrade 1
    11.14.1.46 2.4.8.12 < - Upgrade 2
    11.14.2.17 2.4.8.14 < - Upgrade 3
    11.14.2.28 2.4.8.15 < - 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..
