I'm having problems, specifically:
BW_Low (Frequently), NOT_UDP (Constantly), and FW_STRONG (Constantly)
My BW while streaming averages 8-10 kBps up and down in Skype.
I see UDP Status Local: Bad Remote: Bad (When streaming when she streams to me.)
I see UDP Status Local: Bad Remote Good (When I stream to myself both to and from, using my iPhone. I know the iPhone is going to have lower video quality, but I have the same errors when streaming to my partner. It's used for diagnostic and illustrative purposes.)
I'm have a WRT54G wireless router using DDWRT firmware.
I also seem to keep going through relays, How do I stop this?
Pic below shows what I've tried. How do I get skype to use UDP instead of TCP?
192.168.1.3 is my iPhone. It is using UPnP. I've tried using UPnP with Skype on my PC and had no success.
Quick edit. My PC is also fully capable of sending HD video.
Is the iPhone at the other end of the call on wifi or 3G?
Do you have the same problem with other contacts or only that one?
What results do you get with a test at www.speedtest.net? Up and download speed, and ping?
Are you connected to your router via wifi or Ethernet? If wifi, can you try an Ethernet connection to see if it makes a difference?

Hi, SpeedTest results are in the pic in the first post.
15.40 Mbps downstream
3.02 Mbps upstream
Also tested via torrent, avg 2.1 mB/s download 575 kB/s upload over a 7 hour period.
I can't connect directly from the modem -> ethernet port without disabling Wi-fi on my phone. It would be running on the 3G network, I would be unable to test.
I will give it a try anyway.

I did a test using a direct connection from the modem to the laptop and made a call to Echo123. The results are still the same. Attached picture:
What type of ISP do you have? Cable? DSL? Something else?
If it's cable, can you try connecting directly to your modem to eliminate your router (and maybe the DDWRT firmware) and the cause of the problem?

Ok. I sorry I missed the speedtest result in your original post.
Anyway, that ping seems very high. I normally see under 15 ms ping when running a speedtest to any of the servers within a 100 miles or so here. Mind saying where you're located and who your ISP is?
I'm frankly running out of ideas. I'm leaning toward thinking your problem lies with your ISP but I know it would take a miracle to convince them of that.
