When I enable audio and my partner connects we are able to hear each other well but there is a problem of echoing. Can anybody shed some light on this problem and how to do away with the echos.

The problem is inherent in Dial-up connections. To stop the echo you'd need a broaband connection.

Conversing with both parties using desktop speakers will produce echoes, as the received sound feeds back into that person's microphone. A friend and I, both on broadband, solved this problem by using headsets, and pulling the line-out jack to the speakers on our sound cards.

So sorry, may I ask are you using router? Mine cannot work, the other party cannot hear my voice. I'm using boardband with a router with OS windows 98se, I've tested between my 2 computers in my home, both work perfectly well. I've enable UPnP but must I disable firewall setting?

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
