Microsoft NetNeeting Problems

NetMeeting works fine on my PC, but i recently installed it on my mothers, and it's terrible. When i talk...all she gets is bit and pieces of words. When she talks.....all i get is bits and pieces. I can talk to anyone, anywhere..works great. I changed her Mic and Soundcard (Full Duplex), even changed Servers(within the program). Don't know where to go from here, any ideas???? thanks, Terry

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Mom has a CTX 166Cyrix w/32mb ram, Mickey Mouse Modem (factory) and now a Yamaha Soundcard. Surely, it's not a power problem.

Do you and her use the same ISP?

(and if i recall correctly, netmeeting is a very FPU intense application, and as we all know, cyrix chips are wastly inferior in teh FPU area when compared to Intel chips.)
