Skype Keeps Dropping Calls

I am using Skype 5.8 right now but since 5.4 or 5.5, Skype has been dropping my calls a lot. It doesn't happen for every call, but with certain users, the calls will be dropped anywhere from 10-30 seconds or 30 min - 1 or 2 hours. Even with some users using the newest version of Skype, our calls still get dropped and Internet speed has never been a problem in the past; it wasn't until about version 5.4 or 5.5 that this has started happening.

Re: Skype Keeps Dropping Calls

I have version

Most times the ringing does not happen, before a connection. 

In the most recent months - no ringing and definitely more "call failed" before the connection.

There are still times - the key pad does not function when trying to connect to an extension.

I'm hoping by this forum, that Microsoft will improve/resolve the bugs.
