skype shuts off my internet

Simple as that. When I turn on skype my internet disconnects. Skype worked on my old computer, its the same router, so I cant see how its a router issue. I went into preferences>advanced and unchecked the boxes other similar threads suggested to turn off. It still shuts off my internet. Those were basically the only suggestions I found in other threads, router and unchecking those boxes, neither seem applicable/work.

Mine is doing the same thing. I'll be streaming TV all evening but when I get on Skype my wireless cuts out. I have a fujitsu laptop and am running windows 7. It only started doing this in the last few months.

Check connection settings

 

In Skype Click Tools >> Click Connection options...

 

type any port between 1024 and 65535

 

check this settings "use port 80 and 443.....incoming connections"

 

... if it had been ticked, then... Remove that check and try then.

 

try disabling uPnP too.
