Download Skype

So I am trying to download skype for my new computer but its not allowing me to download the actual program, only the Skypesetup.exe. And when I start the program to apply skype to my computer is says "we are having problems connecting to the download server" and shows me a 'download' button at the bottom of the program and takes me to the page that starts downloading the setup.exe on the skype web page and begins downloading another setup.exe. Can anyone explain why its doing this and why I can't download Skype on my computer?
