When I open Skype, my Internet connection starts glitching. Skype seems to work fine but no webpages will load. Downtime is anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes. This only happens when I launch Skype. I've tried restarting my wireless router and reinstalling Skype but nothing seems to resolve the issue.
System requirements for running Skype met on your computer and your connection ?
Did you try to use Ethernet instead of WiFi ?

I have this problem too, Bradley. Except, my Skype will also go offline and so for that duration of time there is no browsing on the web, and my Skype is disconnected. In fact, this regularly happens every twenty minutes. There's maybe a 1-3 minutes lull, and then the internet and Skype are okay for another 20 minutes. This is getting really frustrating as I have contacted Skype Live Chat 7 times! Also, although the last tip was helpful, I don't have AOL on my computer at all!
