DLink Network camera, image taking

I have a situation, we have a DLink 2230, we need to take images that are posted to a website.  The site refreshes one image.  This particular model sends images that are incremented, does not allow the option to over write with the same name, where we have a DCS 900 model that does allow this, the quality is not as good however.  Looking for away around this or a recommendation on another model that will give us what we need.
Thank you

The D-Link DCS-2230 can send an image to an FTP server or send it via email. Which technique are you using? And after that, how does the image get to the website? Regards, Joe
You could just allow the camera to put the files in a local folder and then use a scriptable FTP client to find the files and upload them with a specific name.  If you used Robo-FTP the script might look something like this:
WORKINGDIR "c:\images\from\camera"
GETNEXTFILE "*.jpg" /timeout=0
FTPLOGON "www.myserver.tld" /user="FTPaccount" /pw="secret"
FTPCD "/images"   ;subfolder on FTP site 
SENDFILE %nextfile /as "LastImage.jpg"  
DELETE "*.jpg"
GOTO start
