How can I make a network camera? Answered

I have a router a linksys and I have a webcam. Does anyone know how I could hook it up so that I could plug the camera into the router and connect to the signal with a laptop and watch the feed?

You can plug it into a computer and then use a streaming service like Justin.TV to stream it online for free. That way you can watch the feed anywhere you have internet access.

You have to run it through a computer... you can't directly plug it into the router. Even then, you have some serious networking to do. Good luck! :)
