    I just bought a new Vstarcam C7837WIP IP camera (I already owned two older ones). The new one has completely different firmware, which seems to be crippled compared to the old version - the new one has no web admin interface, and it is impossible to apply a static IP address. The facility for changing the default admin password is also broken - the Eye4 app is supposed to do this, but just hangs whenever you try to apply the change. Even if I manage to locate the old firmware there's no way of downgrading it.

    Can anyone a recommend a decent HD wireless IP camera with:
    - pan-tilt-zoom
    - configurability via a web GUI
    - 2-way audio
    - ability to view the video stream from a web browser without the use of a proprietary plug-in
    - Ideally (but not essential) dynamic DNS with one of the free services (e.g. no-ip, change-ip)
