-After several minutes (anywhere from 5 to 20, depending on the time of day) something happens so that I can hear her but she cannot hear me any longer. When we call back, things are fine until it happens again.
-This happens with any of the free voice programs we've tried, Yahoo, Skype, AIM.
-We've checked the ping to these websites and supposedly our router numbers are set correctly.
-We've tried enabling port triggering and applying it to ports suggested from other help sites and from the application sites themselves.
-I believe she is using a Linksys router and mine is a new D-Link (although we were having the same trouble with my old Linksys).
-We are both running Windows XP home addition
From what we can tell our settings are correct, but to be honest we don't have much knowledge in this area at all and it's obvious there is a setting wrong somewhere. I am only average when it comes to computer knowledge so please keep that in mind when giving suggestions (although I follow directions well!) Any help would be greatly appreciated because this problem is becoming very frustrating!
