Window Live Messenger

  hcir 10:39 11 Feb 2007

Been using windows live messenger for a while now but every time i connect i seem to get a really bad line when speaking to someone. I have also tried skype also and that seems even worse. for instance the test call on skype sounds as if the lady is underwater then the commection cuts off. Im on a broadband connection and currently running at 1.1 mbps but is there anything i can do to increase the call clarity. for an example i can see them speaking on the webcam but dont hear the words they are saying maybe just the last bit of a sentence My query is to see if there is a way to improve this ur do i stay at messeging and come to the conclusion "well its free, what do you expect?"

hope someone can help

many thanks

Try without the webcam

I take it that you have tried audio video set up on W/Messenger tools.

Should also have said then go to Faq, then seventh topic down.
Hope this makes sense.
