After installing the patch, I can no longer log in remotely anymore. It's just freezing at loading at log in page. Try to locally uninstall patch, it still stays the same, frozen at login page. :((. Now I can never use it remotely anymore, even though it's still working on my iPhone.

What about you login in the Local with the local ip, instead of the ddns?
Did you ever try to reset your browser to have a try?
It seemed that the plugin couldn't been loaded, please remove the plugin in "Program List" of the Control Panel to have a try.

Update, reset my foscam FI9821w V2. Went over set up again. However, no success, it's frozen at log in page.
Then i tried to log in locally and uninstall the patch, clear browser cache and cookies, reset browser, then it works ok remotely but without pan & tilt.
I reinstall the patch again, and it keeps frozen at login page. So, there's no way to check if the patch works or not because I cannot log in.
Now I have to uninstall the patch once more time, and it works just fine remotely ( of course without pan & tilt shown up in browser).
Everything works perfect on iPhone !

Note that I *can* login when the camera is connected via ethernet. I *cannot* login, however, if the camera is connected via wifi. Same lan, no DDNS stuff, just connection method is different.

Seems whatever logic is in there to detect wired versus wireless connection is terribly broken.

I got a little confuse.
You can't login remotely, but it works in local? If you can't login, how can you uninstall the patch?

Yes, I logged in locally using LAN address to uninstall the patch, then clear cache, and I can logged in remotely through ddns normally (no pan & tilt control). With the patch installed, I was not able to log in because it was stuck at the log in page with a pink circle spinning around indefinitely

I'm having the same problem with my FI9821W V2. Before installing the patch, connecting via the local IP address worked perfectly, but connecting using a hostname resulted in missing controls.

After installing the patch, connecting via the local IP address still works fine, but now I can't even login at all when using a hostname.

Ya, I thought it was wired versus wireless, but it's actually name versus IP. In my network, I have DNS names for my cameras. If I connect my web browser to the camera by name, I cannot see the PTZ controls. However, if I point the same web browser to the same camera by IP, I can see the PTZ controls. This is on the HTTP port too (not HTTPS).
