pedro2, You have tried AnchorFree HotSpot Shield, (no charge) right? Don't understand why it works for me and not for you. We are located in Bermuda Landing just north of the bridge. Chris Barenfanger has no problem with Skype either as long as he's running HotSpot Shield, yet his foreman Mike Madrid who lives in town has constant problems even with HotSpot running....maybe there's a charm north of the bridge?!
