I've just called the VFX support and an automatic message has acknowledged problems this morning with one way communication.
Today it's particularly bad but in my case, on a Telstraclear 4Mb/2Mb cable connection, this kind of problem is very frequent.
I've been a VFX customers for about 3 months. I reckon the Telstraclear connection is much worse than the Orcon Adsl I used to have, but despite that, Skype still works much more reliably than VFX.
I've followed all the instructions, opened all the required ports on my router, disabled QoS (how strange having to do that) and still the service it's pretty unreliable (let's not talk about the voice compression, the delays and the echo).
So, dear Wxc, where's the problem? is it with Vfx or Telstraclear?
PS Most of the time there's no data traffic other than Vfx
