I had the same problem. Then I upgraded my router to dual band with 5.4 ghz and that worked

If nothing else is dropping out, it's probably SCSI-related (Shitty Corporate Skype Infrastructure). We've been suffering from it all year.

Be responsive. Don't wait to be assigned tasks. Find someone one level above you and try to perform at that level. Don't be annoyed when senior guys ask you to get coffee or pickup / order lunch or make dinner reservations.

And then deliver the coffee/lunch to the client site and make yourself useful!!!

Yes it's because Skype is garbage

Wtf is d2 talking about? In any case, I didn't have this problem at my old place. Nothing else seems to be dropping. Just will have to use old school dial in I guess

Yeah what's D2 up to?

Yeah I usually do the same, but client organizing this meeting series is based in EMEA and it always fails. My number and country code are in there correctly, so have no idea what's going on.

Think d2 was responding to another thread

I have a zoom acting class in which it is mandatory to keep video on which will be recorded for marketing purposes. I feel uncomfortable being recorded and even more uncomfortable not knowing where it is going to be used. How do I say no to a conservative teacher who will push very hard for me to do it anyway?
