If your Woosh connection is giving you latency, then it will affect your Skype.
And most Woosh connections I ever saw were usually low bandwidth and high latency.... if thats changed since I last touched Woosh.....

Opening ports for Skype dosent really work as Skype generally walks around firewalls/router anyway (even our work one where the boss is really paranoid about securty etc)

Is this a call to another Woosh user or a call to a landline using SkypeOut?

Typically Woosh wireless delivers very poor performance that is completey unsuitable for any VoIP applications. There can also be issues with poor quality calls to NZ numbers using SkypeOut.
