I need to talk to other nerds!

I've started using TeamSpeak to communicate with the members of my guild in World of Warcraft, and I've run into a problem. The other users can barely hear me, unless I have the Speech Control Panel open in Windows. I don't have to do anything other than open it, and my volume comes through fine. (Already checked all the levels on the microphone, and that's not the issue.) Any ideas?
