Skype Test Call

I can hear the test call but it says they can not hear me. I can hear myself talk in my headset so I know my mic is working and my sound card test shows my mic is working. Is there an issue with Linksys wt54G router. I have the same problem on my laptop and desktop.

Hello, No the Linksys router should not have anything to do with your Skype services. Try the following:

1. Use a different microsphone other than the one you are using now. The mic test in windows is not always reliable.

2. Follow the Skype instructions for test calls not working.

3. Check you sound setting in control panel.

When speaking through Skype, I hear my friends perfectly clear, but when listen to me speaking, they say I "lag" so it's very hard to understand what I'm saying. I have tried the following to fix...

Hi kasper,

I see that you are having issues with the system regarding the mic, you can hear your friends quite fine but when you start to speak they hear you but it lags or is choppy is that correct?

I saw on your notes that you've already done basically everything on the system untill reinstalling windows have you tried a diffent MIC to use and see the difference.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,

Skype problem

Hi Rudo,

Many things could lead to the problem you described, starting with a problem in your router (if you use one), the connection of your headset, or some restrictions your Internet service provider applies regarding internet voice traffic.

There are three things I would try and see if they fix your problem:
  1. Go into Skype's Audio Settings (Tools -> Options -> General -> Audio Settings) and check that your headset is selected in both Microphone and Speakers. Don't choose Windows Default!
  2. Make sure that the Automatic adjust speaker settings box is not marked. (I don't know why, but this causes often trouble.)
  3. Windows limits it's TCP/IP connections to maximum 10 simultaneous connections (so viruses don't spread too quickly over a network - that's the official Microsoft explanation - haha...). You can't change that but you can apply a patch. Take a look here and see the entry under Which effects does this limit have?
    Download the patch from here, extract it and double-click the .exe file. Type y (for "yes"). Windows will complain and ask you if you really want to allow that. Yes, you do!
    Reboot your computer.
    Run the patch again and if it ask's you "Do you really want to change your limit to 10?" type n (for "no"). This way you see that the patch is really applied.
Important note: I would always be careful if some guy tells me to download some stuff from the internet and install it on my computer, but I can assure you that this really works. I have it installed on my computer and I am running my VOIP plus Skype in two instances without any problems.
What the patch does, is to replace theTCPIP.SYS file, which is located in C:WINDOWSsystem32drivers. It makes a backup of the file (called TCPIP.SYS.ORIGINAL) and writes a new file. So if this change is not ok with you, all you do is to delete TCPIP.SYS and rename TCPIP.SYS.ORIGINAL back to TCPIP.SYS (or apply the patch again).

Please let me know if this was helpful to you. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

First question is do you know what NAT stands for? It is Network Address Translation. In simple terms, it assigns IP address to your network. Unless you've fooled around the settings should be unchanged.

For the simplest possible solution, try shutting down ALL the equipment. Then boot in this order: the cable/DSL modem, the router, the switch, the Xbox console. Give the modem and router plenty of time (30-40 seconds) before booting the next device.

Come back if this doesn't work.
