You are probably experiencing another Skype outage. We are, too, this morning (6-7-2011). Click on Skype and it crashes. Reboot and it fails to connect. It's not your computer, it's Skype. I've read many other reports of the identical problem across the net.
option 1. check your firewall setting maybe it prohibits skype from accessing the internet. check if you have other firewall programs then check the settings. if it is ok try to disable your firewall. option 2.try if you can use your internet connection without using the router then try using skype. if it works there is problem with the router settings. if not your problem with the skype try to reinstall it.
Many others are having this problem
Skype is having a lot of problemshttps://twitter.com/skype says Skype is now gradually returning to normal - we expect it may take several hours for everyone to be able to sign in again, however

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE Connect webcam Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
