Skype calls drop.

Hello everyone!

OK, I went to a friend's house the other night to fix her internet. She bought a new modem but it seemed not to work with her router. I fixed it by putting the modem's setting in the router config.

Everything seemed fine, but now she's telling me Skype keeps dropping calls. Could it be that I changed the MTU to 1400 in the router? Or something else I can do?

Thanks in advance!

If I connect my microwave to my PC, will I be able to download food?

It could certainly be the MTU change. You're making the packets smaller!

Why did you move it down to 1400? Even PPPoE only needs 1492. I've only needed to go as low as 1400 in a few VPN scenarios. Even at that, the MTU should be changed at the PC, not at the router, if at all possible.

The internet standard MTU is 1500.

I'm sorry for the grotesque change of conditions, but she just told me she took the router out and now has a direct connection with the modem... O_O

But yes, I just changed it to 1492 (read that somewhere and memorized it, worked on a few occasions before) because 1500 didn't work at all. Then I changed it to 1400 because everything was slow and I'm an idiot. :-)

But anyway, router's out. Any more ideas? Thanks and sorry again!
