hi there

the problem with alot of these internet phone systems is that they reqiure a sound card that is full duplex,meaning that it can send and recieve sound at the same time. when you have a half duplex sound card only one person can hear and the other wont. also alot of the new systems that come out seem to have only half duplex sound cards installed in them to keep the price down. so maybe this is your problem.

i hope i have helped.
