Default Wireless router...causing webcam problems

I believe from my little knowledge.. MSN uses UPnp port for webcams ? Now my new router is not allowing me to connect to people on msn using my webcam. It connected to one person all the way in the USA im in Uk.. this is a problem for me and i want it fix... but no absolutely nothing about this.... this pc is wired to the router...... so its not wireless.. the other pc's in the house are wireless but they are fine its mainly this main pc im concered about.

Any 1 know what i need to do ?

So the wireless pcs are having no problems, but the wired pc is? That would sugest a problem with the wired pc, and not the router, because the wireless ones are ok.

well you should check on the wireless pc's just to see if it is the router thats the problem. if it is then you may need to go into the router setup, if not go into network connections, right click your nic and go to properties and see what you can find

nic= network interface controller. its just basically your network card in your pc. most pc's only have 1 so it shouldnt be hard to find in network connections, although you might get a 1394 connection in there or something but ignore that. id still try the webcams on the other pc's first and go from there
