Check your Firewall / Proxy Settings.


In Skype, Tools >> Options >> Advanced >> Advanced Settings >> Connection >> uncheck the enable uPnP and click Save.

Loved the "Lights a cigarette" bit. That small sentence made me chuckle while highly annoyed that this problem has been giving me.

I unchecked Enable upnp and my problems are less severe. I still get lots of warnings about internet connection (false, as connection is fine), but no disconnects as yet and no apparent deterioration of call quality.

UPNP should be enabled always, and make sure is enabled in your router settings too.
