Are there any types of broadband modems and routers that would work best for video chatting? I regulary video chat with someone through Yahoo messenger. We both have laptops running Win 7 Home Premium, we both have Belkin N wireless routers. I have an RCA modem issued by the cable company which is what they use for telephone service, she uses a Motorola Surfboard modem. We regularly get dropouts on the voice side, and sometimes get video frozen in a series of still shots. We're always getting good signal strength from the wireless routers. I'm wondering if stronger equipment is needed to handle any extra bandwidth from video chatting. Could there be other issues as well?

Thanks for your advice.
