I got one kid in Santa Maria and one in Brooklyn. I'm in Lake Tahoe. We all have Macs with iSights. Sometimes there is no problem connecting with each other. Other times we not only fail to connect, but an AirPort will go wacky and knock one of us offline. I have a DSL connection and use an AirPort. I have a G3/800 iBook and a G5/2.0. Sometimes the G5 will work and the G3 won't. Othertimes, no problems. So... what's going on and what can I do to make it better? It's a great way to visit with kids and grandkids and it's a lot less expensive and tiring. At the moment, however, it's a pretty big pain in the ass to get connected.
