Hi! i had a problem with skype. Every time i start skype and i tried to log in the internet just crashes.. Actually the network crash and non of the pcs i have on this network have internet access. The problem is only on the skype i use in this pc. To solve the problem i had to close skype and dont let it start at the start up of windows and restart my router and the pc. i know that there is similar topic but i tried to apply the methods they say.. no luck! Please Help.. i need skype!
ps. i use win7 (64bit edition) and the connection is wired. No Antivirus is running, and an error in event viewer says:
"Name resolution for the name apps.skype.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

What type connection do you have to the Internet? Cable? DSL? Etc?
Click on Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection. What number is showing in the "Use port ...... for incoming connections" box?

Try setting a different port number in that box, a random number...say....23300. Uncheck the use the port 80/443 and the use uPnP boxes, save the changes and restart Skype.
See if that helps. It's worked for others having a similar problem with DSL. If it doesn't work for you and Skype can't connect with a random port set, you can set things back to the way they were.
