How are you connecting on Skype?
That big Source Connect job?…is it getting hung up on your slow internet speed?
We all just put Wi-Fi in our home and forget it. Your upload/download speeds are probably working fine for most things, but if you’re connecting your VO studio computer through Wi-Fi, you could be choosing a slower speed than would be optimal.
If at all possible, put your DSL, Cable, or Satellite internet modem physically next to your studio computer. Don’t connect through a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection, rather ,route a Cat5 cable from the modem (or the access point router) directly into a network input jack from your motherboard (typically showing on the back of your computer). The software re-configuration should be minimal.
