I'm new here and really need some advice on why my Skype connection with my Mum is so poor.
Basically, when I Skype my Mum, it is consistently useless! My Mum can Skype other people OK and so can I, but when we Skype each other, it's often unusable. I was wondering if our two ISPs were to blame - mine is Sky, my Mum's is the Post Office. Is it possible that between them they add up to particularly poor bandwidth? Both are setups are wireless, although we're just waiting for some fancy connector things to make ours hard-wired (router can't be nearer PC).
Having read some other posts here, I checked my router stats:
System Up Time: 159:05:34

Any suggestions as to how to improve the Skype connection?
