Skype Home Unavailable

Yesterday and this morning, I logged into Skype.  I got into Skype ok, but the news says that Skype Home isunavailable, and none of my contacts are active, including the Echo/Sound Test Service.  Are there outages in the system, or did something break at my client?  Anybody else seeing this?

Thanks!

Re: Skype Home Unavailable

What is your connection status? Is it "Online"? Look at your connection icon left of your Skype name. If it's "Offline" (white with green border), try to change it to "Online" using the dropdown arrow.

First Check your connection status.

 

If your connection status is "Offline" , try to change it to "Online"

 

After That, Try Below:

 

Here is a Mr. FixIT:

Run This First. See if it resolves the issue. If Not,

 

Here is another Mr. FixIT

 

How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP

Reboot.

 

Then, Download and Reinstall the new Skype 5.7 beta version.

Is your Internet Explorer working? Check if it is not set to "Work offline" mode.

 

What do you see if you open this link in your Internet Explorer (must be IE, even if you are using another browser)?

Re: Skype Home Unavailable

Although my status is "on line" I still keep getting "Skype Home is unavailable at the moment. Check back later to see your news and alerts". I keep on checking but no change. Seems to be a common problem but can't find a solution. Can anyone help?
