Tell ya what, you never said what type of internet connection (modem/direct)
your office has. So, I'll have to *assume* nothing!
For a relatively *cheap* camera, try the Connectix QuickCAM! Check this URL
<> for more information.
To connect to the internet, you should ALWAYS connect direct! Check with
your network office for more details. If you have no network foundation, your
best bet is to use a modem NO SLOWER THAN 28.8 BAUD!!! 14.4 modems will work,
but won't give you ANY power to speak of!
For that *audio* touch, you will need a (biased preferance) SoundBlaster 16!
Keep in mind that you will not have audio if your modem is lower than a 28.8!

Hope this helps!
