    I have a Netgear MR814 wired/wireless router running into a 1.5 Mb/s cable modem. When I try to video chat with someone I can see their video and audio clearly, but they see mine very jerky, pixelated, and usally without audio. When I plug my computer directly into the modem and try, it works fine. I have ports 5060 and 16384-16403 open on my router. I am running a dual 533 G4 with iSight. Please let me know if anyone has any ideas.

    this is a known problem and apple has acknowledged it. Right now, their fix is: don't use wireless.

    Give it a little time, maybe they'll find a workaround...

    It does the same thing even if I use a wired connection into the router.

    Yeah, wireless is just fine on my ABS at home.

    Odd that you've got the ports open and it's still jerky...have you tried taking other devices off the network (if there are any)?
