Both my daughter and I installed Skye on our notebooks. We are able to call one another but the call drops within 1 minute. I think the problem is at her end as I keep seeing the Skpe window pop up saying that she"has just signed in". She does not get that message about me. Bother computers are connected to the internet wirelessly via broadband modems and routers. We think that her computer is constantly breaking her internet connection momentarily which terminates the call. She changed the XP polling to off but that made no difference.
