Skype worked (internet call, instant message, call to phone, etc.) on this laptop for over one year until last Tuesday before our travel. After we checked in to our hotel and connected to their wireless network, skpype stopped working. We checked into different hotels with different wi-fi networks and the same error message appeared. Now we are back home but skype still can't connect with our wi-fi network (and window-7) even though it worked fine before. I have another older computer (window-XP) that we didn't bring with us and skype still works OK (although subtantially slower). I checked the internet connection, port setting, un-installed skype software and re-installed it. Nothing worked. It is a mystery. Please help.

i've been using skype for over a year now in my MacBook Pro OSX Safari and it was fine until i installed the latest version of Skype the other day. Since said installation, skype doesn't work anymore. it leads me to the page but always says i need to be online to make calls or chat with my contacts, even if i am connected through wifi (personal hotspot). I know the wifi connection is ok because i can browse the internet. what's wrong?
