non PWc webcam advice

Forums: 

HI

i'm working on a small hardware project around a linksys nslu2 running the slug with amongst other things a streaming webcam.

problem is that i need a webcam and a number of other USB devices, but when i hook up my old webcam to the nslu2 with a usb hub i get a message that there is not enough bandwidth

i think the problem only occurs with the pwc driver, but would like to try it out with a (preferably cheap) non pwc based webcam.

any help welcome
