'check your connection', it's telling me

but my internet connection's fine, because otherwise i wouldn't be able to see this page to ask about it .. how do i convince skype that it's acting like a lunatic? .. and to make it stop doing that.. i'm trying to look up someone so i can give them a call, but it keeps telling me that it can't look for anybody until i've connected to the internet .. but i'm connected to the internet, and i don't know how to make skype believe that i am
