I think you need more bandwidth than it can offer on 3G for Skype with video. I have Optus cable broadband (not using wifi) here and Skype won't always work with that unless I turn off video. Try audio only.
Routers/switches are fine if a little past their use by date for a laptop,
even if you are not a road warrior most of us in Australia are at present enjoying the 3g broadband network whereby we pay AU$78 for a prepaid broadband dongle it uses the cellphone network at a reasonable (for Australia) 7.5 mbps.
The good part is you plug the dongle into a USB port, it loads its own drivers and software and in about 3 minutes you are on line surfing the nett.
You can use your old ISPs mail box but I reckon Google Chrome with Gmail (google them) is the fastest, most secure and easiest way to go.
Hope you have someone like Vodaphone near you, remember this will need to be in an area or cell which has 3g or 4g coverage.
Good luck John
hi Claire, try to restart your PC on Safe Mode, try to uninstall the software that u installed that caused the problems, reboot it. if its work fine then that's it, but if u wnt to use the software try reinstalling it and be careful on the options u select when the installation is going, you might install it wrongfully and that causes the problem.
Is your "dongle" a 3g modem? 3g modems are often rated at speeds which are practically impossible to reach. Your connection speed will vary depending on the weather, the materials your house is made of and how strong the signal is from the base station. You might notice that your upload speed is especially poor, this is normal for 3g modems. That being said, there are a few things you can do to improve the situation. You can try to get the modem near a window with a better signal, you can install a program like FDM (www.freedownloadmanager.org) which makes a huge difference for download speeds on a g3 modem (I get 50kbps downloads without the program, 400kbps downloads with it). If all else fails you can contact T-Mobile and report a problem with the network - again, it worked for me.
