Question Webcam on MSN keeps stopping

Hi,
When I'm on MSN and am on webcam to somebody, quite recently, every 5 minutes of having the webcam on it stops and says (on the chat screen)
'Webcam session has ended'

My friend has suggested logging out of MSN and then back in but this doesn't make much difference. This only seems to be happening with a few of my contacts.

Does anybody know why this is happening?

Thanx

It could be your connection. What kind of internet do you have?

Try re-installing the driver what came with the webcam if you had one with it.

It didn't have a driver. It's inbuilt with the laptop.

What kind of internet do I have? Please be more specific
Thanx

The problem is more than likely the connection type (the what kind of internet question). You can take a connection test @ http://www.speedtest.net/ . When you are done just post your upload and download speed.

Also what type of webcam are you using along with the software (Logitec, Manycam, etc...)?
