i have heard lots written lately about internet aware devices.  of course a computer with a nic on it would be one, but they arent cheap.

i think i have heard of cameras & microphones that you can somehow just plug in to an rj45, that comes with a fixed or configurable ip address.  then you can 'browse' to it and see or hear what is going on.

we support several hotels in their broadband for guests.  sometimes we wonder if a jack or cable has gone bad.  it would be handy to have at each hotel 'something' that we give to them so a person could go to the room, plug 'it' in, and we could then attempt to detect it from a remote location.

anyone know of something that could be used for this.  a cheap camera? maybe.  i would like it to be about $30 but could maybe get up to the $75 price.  if so i need to know where to buy them too :)

thanks.
