Not really relevant here, but in case anyone else has this problem,
I found that after turning off encryption on the network,
setting up the camera with encryption disabled,
and linking to the camera with WiFi,
I could then access the camera software and turn encryption back on.
Then when I turned encryption back on the router
I could see the camera video and all was well.
I have another WVC54GCA camera, and I'm going to see
if I can do the whole thing through Linux on that.
