Skype cannot connect

I have been using Skype on this computer for years. All of a sudden, I am getting the "Skype cannot connect" message. What can I do?

Re: Skype cannot connect

Before signing in have you tried updating which version of skype you are using?

In fact, I updated Skype and that's when the problem started.

Re: Skype cannot connect

If you search the forums there is a guide on how to return using a previous version. Or the last best known version to you. infact i will try to find it.
