Hi,

Looks like connectivity issue, so it can be wi-fi dongle.
If any other pc/laptop has wired internet connection Or if you can wire-connect present pc/laptop then you can test using skype from it. If it works fine then wi-fi dongle maybe the culprit.

Also there are many sites for testing internet connection speed etc.
Test your internet connection using the dongle.

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Cannot get webcam to work


Make sure that your webcam software is running before you launch skype. For example, if you have a logitec quick cam, start the quick cam utility. You should be able to find it in your start menu - all programs. After your software is running, then launch skpe.

Go to tools - options- then click the video tab. In that tab your webcam feed should appear if you have done everything correctly, and if it is showing up, your good to go start making video calls.

I wish you luck.

Sound - no video


Both try using windows live and set up audio and video in the settings as you did with Skpe, as it's a similair programme and supports any camera. If that works better then Skype has a problem with your camera makes.
