  1. I am running XP on Dell desktop.
    Cable modem used is Motorola Surfboard SB5101 which is connected to a D-Link router EBR-2310 - a NAT box.
    When I make Skype video calls, the voice on both ends at times fades in and out or the call would just get disconnected.

    I understand that the problem could be on my end or on the other person's end.

    But I am wondering if there is a way for me to run sniffer (any shareware options?) to see what is going on?

    I also suspect that my ISP - Comcast - may be playing mischief. They used to when I used Vonage and I think Comcast paid some damages to Vonage for that one.

    How can I debug the problem? Any help would be great.

    See the problem a lot on Comcast... particularly in the morning with their system slows down... don't know of a fix... or whether the issue rests with Skype or the provider... but it seems to be a fairly common problem.
    Have not seen a reliable "sniffer" but perhaps others have had more luck.
