Router Wont Allow the Viewing of Yahoo Webcams

by jsuri00 / September 7, 2006 3:12 PM PDT

Ok, so in order ot get the internet wirelessly to my new laptop, we recieved a wireless router from Roadrunner. Ever since that router has been installed, everytime i attempt to view a webcam on yahoo messenger through my PC, it says that there was an error in connecting to the server. The same thing happens on my Laptop but once in a while, it works. But thats unacceptable anyway. After calling the internet company numerous times, i just gave up becuase of their inbred incompetence. But now i have to do something about it, please advise. If it helps, the Router is an RCA- Wireless Cable Gateway, and Yes i know, that doesnt seem like one of the greatest router's to use but im searching for an alternate to buying my own so , help me out.
