I just did a one way video conference with my cousin who has an imac with isight.. He is on wireless cable and i am on wired.. i could barely see him most of the time and it was extremely choppy.. i think it is because his connection isnt that good because he is pretty far from the router.. but still gets about 3-5 bars on airport.. Is there anyway to improve this?
I will get my own ichat soon but they will be updating it.. so i will hold out..

It most likely is one of your internet connections, not the actual network you are on. Try having him lower the resolution of his video in the iChat preferences.

I haven't been able to get the video with ichat working on my macbook. Would anyone IM me on AIM at mitchell61385 to see if we can get it to work?
