    Iíve been using my microphone to talk online and the two programs that I know of are a bit wank.

    Thereís Skype from the creators of Kazaa, it works ok sometimes, but breaks up a lot and really goes to shit if you want to browse at the same time.

    and there's Gossiptel which takes ages to set up and also doesn't run too smoothly

    So does anyone know of any other progs, ones that work really well?

    Edit: the microphone option on MSN Messanger wont work for some reason? would prefer not to use it anyway.

    A fast DSL cable, so's the other person I'm talking to. Skype does work fine sometimes, but it does break up enough to annoy you and become useless, even when you're not browsing and have nothing else on in the background.

    Depends on what you want it for. There are other progs out there, which are mainly for gaming. I use ventrilo myself (not the latest version tho, due to changes in the licence). It uses a very small amount of BW but has very good sound (you can choose what kind of compression it uses and such).

    The drawback (I guess) is that you need a server for it and all who use it needs the client (I run the server on an old p2 400 with linux). It was a piece of cake to set it up (haven't tried the windoze verison of the server so dunno about that, but since a friend of mine managed to set it up, I'd say it's extremely easy ^^)

    if you want to check it out head over to: www.ventrilo.com
