Family member has earthlink DSl, with a ZyXEL modem. We are having no luck with ICHAT AV (tried open ports, firewall off, etc..) with no luck. I read many problems with the ZyXEL modem with IChat. So I have an older speedstream 5230, and was curious if I had my family member purchase a simialr speedstream modem (or other brand), would it work with Earthlink DSL? The problem with our ICHAT is not a router issue. We were using our wireless belkin routers, but we already bypassed those routers, and still had the same problem. Has anybody ever used the same mac account, to start up a Video Conferencing? I own one primary mac account, and 3 sub accounts. In our home, we have no problem connection to ICHAT AV on different computers through the same wireless router. READ On one WEBSITE that one solution for the ZyXEL modem is changing the AOL SERVER M (in Ichat preferences) to 433 from 5190. Have not tried it yet, will tonight.
