Can you manually go onto our computers and do this for us? ***** ***** said he was going to do it, but you are the first one who has responded to this message. Also Jason has been helping us with our connection issue for some time now. He knows the background about it, but do you believe that older Skype versions will help us keep a better connection? We also have updated our equipment at the home as well. There are two computers that he has been remotely coming onto also.
