    Hi Macsterguy,

     

    Would you mind terribly if we asked you to start a new thread ?

     

    This one was not Started by Gary and I believe the Original Poster probably unsubscribed themselves from the thread, however new posts do generate new emails which some people may not want.

     

    You can reference/Link to this thread by posting it's URL.

     

    Could you also give a summary of what you have tried and what OS and iChat Version you are using ?

    Hi Ralph,

     

    I was the original poster of this problem.

     

    I have been monitoring all of the different trouble shooting suggestions, from the time I started this thread.

     

    Next week I will be back at my mothers house when I will be able to try some of the suggestions.

     

    If folks recall, my problem was that I could use my MacBook pro on my mom's wireless net gear router and perform screen sharing via iChat. Yet my mom's MacBook would not. Both would do iChat text just fine.

     

    There was a suggestion, about checking certain settings on my mom's Mac book.... And I will be checking them next Tuesday.

     

    In the mean time there was a suggestion to use jabber account. I'm going to give that a try next week as well.

     

    Thanks for everyone's work, suggestions, and trials.

    Hi,

     

    I would like to thank you for the "space" for Defcom and myself to help Gary.

     

    If you are still having problems we will be willing to continue.

    Well, I finally was able to get back to my mom's house to try a few things Ralph and others had suggested..

     

    1. I set up using Bonjour on both computers and..... ichat video, screen share, and normal chat WORKED... yeah!

     

    2. Then by the stroke of luck I came across this post.... how to set up ichat for google talk.

     

    http://support.google.com/talk/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=24076

     

    I deleted my AIM account on both of my computers. Remember, mine is a MacBook Pro, and my mom's was

    a normal Macbook.

     

    By setting up a gmail account for the two of us, I now can do all the chats via Ichat..... video, screen sharing,

    text, etc... with out going down the path of teamviewer, etc...

     

    I hope this is helpful to others.

     

    I suppose this can now be closed out.
