What router are you using? I use Tomato and the QoS controls seem decent, but the interface is better (definitely more intuitive) than what I remember from DD-WRT. How are you setting the QoS controls? Is there a "Skype" option, or VOIP, or SIP, or are you manually specifying a port range? I'd bet there's a lot of ways you could think you're giving priority to the Skype traffic on your network, when you actually aren't.
So how can I get Skype to not loose bandwidth when I do something else?
Also possible this is your ISP. Given that you say you have "slower DSL," I'd wager this is your problem. Test by Skyping and then copying a several GB file over the LAN. Does your signal still go down? If so, it's the router. If not, it's WAN-related.
