Skype dropping connection...

Hi y'all,

Just installed Skype on an XP box.

Internet connection is thru a W2K machine with a 56k modem attached.

Every time a Skype connection is made from XP, the modem is disconnected after 60 seconds.

Does PlusNet allow Skype connections, if so any ideas what might be causing the modem to disconnect ?

FWIW, I can leave the internet open with no traffic for an hour before the modem disconnects, so it isn't a time out issue.

TIA
Dave

Check your modem has the latest drivers installed.

This douns like either a driver issue, causing the modem to disconnect for some reason or another.

PlusNet allow skype with no issues here.
