@danielAzuelos There is no best answer but the answers that received the bounties are the ones I feel were closest to the solution.

@danielAzuelos The problem has not been solved. I gave up on making skype calls at certain hours.

@mike do you think Little Snitch might be a possible cause? I've been using it for years and never had this happen until now though... but maybe my LAN is more busy now that 2 more people moved in... What do you think?

Ok, I will completely uninstall it and see what happens (but I've been using it for years with no problem).

@mike Got it... it definitely is a problem between Mac and router. I can try to check for my Mac's MAC from another device at a time of connection drop... but is there any other way? I have to ask my roommates to cooperate for this and none of us have much time off work.

I made a new network configuration with just ethernet and will ping '192.168.1.1' for the next 24 hours to see what happens.

@DavidDelMonte the computer does fine at other locations. I'll try setting up a new user account. My ISP tells me everything is perfect, and other machines in my network have no problem. I repaired permissions and everything is perfect, but I can't swap components.

Skype is hosting a call almost 24/7 on my machine... I'll turn off all pings, etc today to see if something changes the next time the connection drops (because I can still tell if it drops by listening to the audio I get from the Skype call)

I see... but nothing changed in my networking activity in the past 5 years. This problem started about a month ago and I can't find any correlations except that it was about a month ago when 2 colleagues moved in. But I ran ping tests on their machines and they don't experience this issue. I'm not aware of any QOS filters but I will try to find out.

Thanks for the advice, they were already off though :(

Software that is always running in the background and that might have something to do with this: Little Snitch, Dropbox, Skype, and all OS X stuff... but nothing new, and the problem started about a month ago. One thing that I do suspect is that it was about a month ago when 2 new roommates moved in. I ran ping tests in their computers and they are not having this problem though.
