However, it has been found in most of occasions that the actual reason behind the call worthless quality is bad internet connection. So this is the main concern that you need to take care of. You must check the bandwidth of your internet connection properly that whether it can accommodate more than 2 devices or not.
Another point where you need to give attention is check whether the problem is during the one to one call or in a group call. If you find that the problem is mainly during the group call, then check the system processing speed. If the processing speed is more, then only you will able to make a group call otherwise it keeps on disconnecting due to inability of system to process the load. The internet connectivity and the processor power are the two things, which we can say are the pre-requisites for the skype calling. If your problem is still not solved, then you can take Skype support from the official Microsoft skype support link.
