WXP/MSN_Messenger voice problem.

  Carrick Man 13:01 23 Feb 2003

Before both upgrading to Dell 8250 systems my son and I successfully chatted using W98/Messenger/Netmeeting, using both Video and Voice.
Since the upgrade I can see and hear him perfectly, he can see me but my voice after initially being good to him, starts to breakup and degrades to the extent that it can no longer be used.
We are both using the same versions of XP and MSN Messenger, the same Soundblaster card.
He uses McAfee Firewall in the USA and I use ZoneAlarm in the UK. Because of sensitive material on his system he is reluctant, understandably, to switch off his Firewall.
I have also tested my system with another son locally, successfully, but only after we both switched of ZoneAlarm Firewall.
