yesterday I tried to get started a Terratec TerraCam Usb Pro at my ASUS (WL-500gP, WL-HDD devices. I also tried to run it on my old WL-500g with Now I'm talking about WL-HDD, but the behaviour at WL-500g/gP was the same. I ran the cam with following settings:

Enable Web Camera? LAN Only
Web Camera Mode: ActiveX and Refresh
Web Camera Driver: OV51x 1.65-1.12
Image Size: 320 X 240

The cam got the power and produced following log:

I think it looks good, doesn't it? But the pictute of the cam consists of some garbage (see attachment).

The cam is OK, I've tested it on my PC. And I've seen in the USB compatiblity thread a "WORKING" message for this cam type. Do I do something wrong? Did somebody get this cam started at an ASUS device? Or maybe did somebody have the same failure with an other cam typ and could solve it?

The second minor problem, Win XP SP2 forbid me to install the ActiveX plug-in (netcam_mfc_activeX.cab), because it's not signed (unknown publisher). I can use the refresh mode, but it seems to be more comfortable to use the ActiveX plugin. How can I install it?

I think that there's a command / variable you must set in your router to "repair" this garbage. I saw it in this forum anywhere. Maybe it will help you.

Hi jimmy_cr,

I searched in the forum for such an effect, but I could'n find any usable information yet. I read something about a "dumppix=1" parameter, but it was not a complete information. Could you make your hint more precise, which command or variable should be set?

try this

I've already seen this thread. That' what I mean with "not a complete information". I know either what does the dumppix patameter do, nor how to set it right for my cam. :(
