Skype Calls Across Network Dropouts

/ 5 January 2008

Yesterday during part of a Skype-based call to AppleCare the wireless stopped functioning for the worldwide web. The iMac using Skype was on a wired connection, but through the wireless as a router. To fix the wireless we need to unplug and plug back in the wireless router. This would kill the iMac’s internet. As it turned out, the Skype call did drop out, but came back when the router was functioning again. I just thought that this would be an interesting thing for us all to know (since it is the exact opposite result of what you’d think). Enjoy, Alex.
