Internet disconnects when using Skype and playing games.

Hello. My whole internet DISCONNECTS. I cannot go on any sites, continue my game and skype disconnects from my call.

 

This ONLY happens when I"m playing games when I'm in a call. Once I take off skype, my game works fine 100%, also my internet is fine as well. I've tried 'unchecking' the uPnP in settings but still no solutions.

Re: Internet disconnects when using Skype and playing games.

Thanks for replying but as said in my original post. I've already tried unchecking the 'enable uPnP' option. The problem still consists.

Re: Internet disconnects when using Skype and playing games.

try to turn off your routers firewall and disable uPnP in routers settings.

do you have any other p2p software installed on your computer?

 

In Skype, Click Tools >> Options... >> Advanced Settings>> un-check Use Port 80 and 443....incoming connections

 

Click Tools >> Options... >> Skype WiFi >> Tick Enable Skype WiFi

Re: Internet disconnects when using Skype and playing games.

Yes, I have a p2p program installed, bittorrent but I close it when I go on skype or play games.

 

I tried your solution of turning on the wifi and unchecking the ports but the problem still persists. :sad:

 

I appreciate it a lot that your still helping me through this problem :happy:

please configure your BitTorrent application

 

In BitTorrent, try this- Options >> Preferences >> Torrent Options. Set the Global maximum to a lower number - try a 100 or less

 

You can also try to turn off DHT. 

options >> preferences >>  BitTorrent > unmark enable DHT

 

Refer:

you may also try uninstalling BitTorrent and then try running skype.
