Sorry for the wordy post...
Anyone know how do I fix packet loss on VOIP? Teamspeak, Skype, MSN Voice all have inbound jittery clipped robotic voice. Teamspeaks shows "total" packet lost, climbing to at least 20% with Speech packet loss 50-65% then I lose connection altogether.

All other network programs (Firefox, streaming music, videos, online gaming) work fine.

I have ATT DSL, using a Netgear Wireless G Router w/ built in Modem (model DG834G). The network has 1 attached device, my Dell laptop (which is usually powered off).

The packet loss problem is identical on my desktop pc and laptop (both using the same network). Problem exists when nothing else is running, only Teamspeak (or another VOIP)

I have replaced all wires, cables, filters. Power cycled modem. Problem exits with or without Port Forward.

Any ideas?

Ideally you would test with just a modem connection but your device is both.

What are your broadband test stats? []

If its not the modem/router then it's your onramp to the internet: your ISP's equipment.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I am going to borrow a modem to connect directly. Will follow up soon. Thanks very much for your input! :)

Well, still generally sounds like a QoS problem. Video and music streaming don't have quite the same latency requirements (they can be buffered somewhat). A live voice chat requires very low latency, as no buffering can be performed.

Or, could be over-buffering on your ISP's end. This recent slashdot article comes to mind -
