Skype & dropping

  Bike-it 22:44 15 Nov 2010

I run windows vista on a Dell studio laptop which is connected to a billion 7800N router it is a very stable and fast router until you come to using Skype, it will work fine for a while and then it keeps dropping connection, it does not matter if you are using it wireless or connected to the router by a Ethernet cable.
Anyone here offer any help please.

Is that with anyone, or one particular contact?

I only use Skype to speak to one person.

Then the problem could be with your contact's connection. You could get them to do a check using click here

Anything else running at the same time?
I have a problem if my scanner software is showing in the taskbar, even if the scanner is not actually switched on. If I exit the scanner software the problem disappear.
