Probably your connection, try...
ping -c 4 www.ubuntu.com
My broadband has a lot of latency. Most of the time I have a packet
lose when pinging. Skype fails, but I can talk with gtalk on windows
ok. It seems gtalk (desktop client) is much better for voice than
Skype. Unfortunately, there is no gtalk app with voice for Linux.
I hear people calling into radio shows using skype, but in my experience
unless you have an excellent connection, skype no good.
Hardy comes with Ekiga, but I haven't tried it after giving up on
internet phone on this satellite connection.
