Webcam and Router Issues

I use the webcam alot to talk to my friends online. My webcam is a pretty cheap one (but thats all you really need). It's made by EZCam Pro and the model is P35U (I have the driver for it). The software that I use is Eyeball Chat, for 2 main reasons:

1) It is smaller and doesn't clog up the CPU as other webcam messaging programs like MSN and AIM
2) So far, it's shown me the best frame rate/ picture quality of all the ones I've tried

Anyway, so while I am at school, I am on a T-1 internet connection, and the webcam works fine. However, when I am at home, it doesn't. The only difference between school and home is that I have Cable internet at home, and we have a router (I have a laptop, so the computer is the same in both cases). I have not been able to understand why that would make a difference, because when I checked, it doesn't look like there's a firewall on the router.

What do you think could be wrong, and how do I go about fixing it?

Thanks a bunch,
