Hi
I've been trying to have a video chat with my friend on iChat and it never connects, instead it says that one of us has did not respond or that there wasn't enough bandwidth or that there was a communication error. It's never worked for us yet. Does anyone know how this can be solved?
Thanks
Amy

Got a BT Voyager 205 router by any chance? I have... have't been able to get iChat to video or audio ever since I got my iMac G5 almost a year ago! You can faff around with port forwarding and so forth but basically I was recomented a Net Gear router. I didn't bother because of the cost but now if you can find it you could try Skype Beta with video chat for Mac... I use it for video and its been fine so far!

Yeah I do have a BT voyager router, it's a 2100 one. It has worked before but the person I'm trying to connect with now uses a Belkin router. I found yahoo messenger that does webcam but no voice :(

Thanks
