Yes. I've got 1 momentum brand camera. Sometimes it takes a minute or two to pull up the live feed but it works with this internet.

Yes, I have a mixed bag of individual WiFi cams. An older Wansview, a Foscam, a FDT, and a Amcrest. All are remotely accessible via SmartPhone apps. I have varying degrees of success  accessing from another computer. Setup ranges from wow that was easy to WT?.
I also have a couple year old cheap LaView 4 camera DVR system which works on my local network, that I have never been able to remotely access.

Yes.  I have a foscam.  Just connect to it using the secondary stream which is lower bandwidth.  If you try to connect on HD it might not work.  In addition you would need to use a DDNS service to access it reliably over the Internet as our modems only have persistent DNS which when the router reboots you have a new IP.  Freeddns is the one I use.

Now this is great information! I was thinking just 3MB @ 1080, I could probably dumb it down more. Not a lot of live streaming necessary (but I could ask you how good does this work with dish latency). I mostly use Blue Iris so on alert it throws the video (stores on a local drive) to my email and/or text message.
