Skype: Wireless link keeps dropping
Posted on 2005-04-20
Please read carefull:
I'm experiencing the following problem. Everytime I connect through skype, the wireless link drop for a few seconds, causing the call to terminate after +/- 1 minute.
The wireless link ONLY drop when using this program, otherwise it is ALWAYS connected.
I've got a US Robotics Wireless Turbo Access Point & router, Model: USR8054.
Open system with Mac filtering.
PC's with Conceptronic Wireless PCI cards.
Well, when I connect from a Wireless PC to a Wireless/Wired PC INSIDE the LAN, it works fine without problems.
When I connect from a WIRED PC to a PC over the internet, it works fine
It is only when I connect from a WIERLESS PC to a PC over THE INTERNET when the connection drops!!!!
Is it the firewall of the router blocking it out??? What setting on this specific router will correct this problem???
