Others can't hear or see me, even though camera and microphone are working

We’re using Jitsi meet for a group of friends meeting to visit and do some role playing games. Entering the meeting, I’m able to confirm the camera is showing me properly and the mic is working. But when others join, it looks like connectivity drops and no one is able to see or hear me, they see my “icon” though.
I routinely use Zoom, Webex, and Teams for school and work. Their connectivity and quality always seems fine (or better).
I end up using my iphone app rather than laptop, which seems to be a poor workaround.
My laptop is using power-line ethernet or WiFi, whic I realize is poorer in general than hard-wired ethernet. But that is the best I can do without punching holes in floors and walls. And I have great performance with those other video chat platforms.
Any suggestions?

I have the same issue over past few weeks (Jitsi.meet worked fine on my PC until then). I can’t see person(s) I invited to meeting (just a box with their initial) or hear them, and they can’t see me. I was using Firefox, but also tried Chrome with no success. I’m looking for other platforms – any ideas for me before I stop using Jitsi? I need secure video meeting capability. Thanks!

@shenaesq Welcome to the forum.

Can you do a test at test.webrtc.org and share the result?

Thank you. Do you mean a test with an invited participant? Or just test of my system?

That link will test your system.

Here’s the test (attached). Thanks.

My apologies. I actually just read your initial post over. You weren’t saying your mic and camera weren’t working, just that the others couldn’t see or hear you. Did you make any change on your system in the past few weeks? Do you have a new firewall up? Are you using a VPN? And also, when you have more than one other person in the meeting with you, were the others able to see and hear each other (except you)?
