    I have MacBook running 10.5.6 and normally I have no problems connecting to iChat to do video chats. When at my parents when I connect wirelessly to their Linksys wrt54g version 6 w/ firmware 1.02.6 installed I receive the following error:
    There was a communication error during your chat. Did not receive a response from..

    Using the same wireless network I was able to video iChat with another Mac user in the house.

    In the Linksys router I enabled the following Port Ranges:
    5190
    5220
    5223
    5297
    5298
    5353
    5678
    16384-16403

    In System Preferences > Sharing > Firewall I have "Allow all incoming connections" checked.

    I will presume the problem is with the Linksys WRT54G but cannot figure out a solution. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thank you for looking.

    Drats! I forgot to add a more descriptive title. Urgh....

    I wish I could help you but considering I've got the same problem with my Mici KN-S1060 Broaband Router/Firewall... I'm not much help. Is there any third party app like Little Snitch blocking it?
