When ever I use my webcam it lags foor some reason. I have a 256k cable connection, the webcam is usb. Its strange cause sometimes itll lag after a while, sometimes never, sometimes all conversation long. Any ideas ?

Nope, I stop anything im doing. At first I did then I tought "Downloading at 25kbs, webcam on" something didnt add up if u know what i mean. So, yeah, thats not it. But tanks anyway. If I get a T1 and still have this problem Ill grab the webcam by the cord and smash it against the wall. But I wont be getting a T1 for a while. Id rather get 5mb Cable, thats real nice. But, my current isp doesnt offer 5mb, so Im stuck on 256 for a while, a long long while.

I dont think you will need to do that :p

Maybe the webcam has a problem....you could try newer drivers or something like that :)

I'm a very lazy person myself :p

You dont have to have a really great camera...as long as it works ;) and you have the drivers for it :D

all web cams will lag, its only the really expensive ones that are slightly better because they have a higher frame rate.

Just throw it!

If itz USB it must've been pretty cheap, I got a Logitech Quickcam Express for 30 bux! And the res is sweet, along with the frame speed! It rox, and at Wal-Mart so its easy to find...:)
