    Skype to Landline Phone, Poor Quality

    Ok, let me get to the specs first.
    Ubuntu 10.4, Sound card works great when recording and doing playback with Ubuntu. Skype v. 2.1 beta.
    In Windows XP, same system, I dual boot. When I use Skype (latest), and I try to call to a landline in the US, everything works fine. Everyone can hear me fine and there's no problems.

    The problem: When I use Ubuntu, and Skype, there's crackling, dropped off sound, and the overall quality is bad.

    Any suggestions?


    EDIT: The biggest issue here is dropping parts of the call. Why does it do that?

    Well, I haven't found an answer to the problem, however, I've bought a small usb sound card and I'm using that. It works like a charm.. Lol, it's only like 30 bucks. Let me know if that helps for those of you who have the same problem. Later.

    Have you given skype an inbound port?
