Question about Computers & Internet
There is a version 4.1 Skype. You might need to upgrade by going to skype.com. If you already have the latest upgrade and you are on a LAN you might want to configure your LAN settings to allow access for skype. Otherwise, if you have a direct internet connection and you can get on the internet with your browser, you'll need to configure your connection to allow skype. If you have McAfee or Norton or another firewall you'll have to go to the program permissions to allow Skype. If you are also using Windows Firewall you can follow these steps to allow Skype to pass through your firewall.
Go to START + CONTROL PANEL, THEN RIGHT CLICK ON NETWORK CONNECTIONS. IN THE DIALOGUE BOX CLICK ON PROPERTIES. IN THE NEXT PANEL CLICK ON "ADVANCED". There you can set your Firewall settings to except Skype, Just click on SETTINGS + ADVANCED + EXCEPTIONS. Make sure Skype is checked. This will tell your computerl to allow skype to access the internet without being blocked by your firewall.
I hope this helps, but usually when you install Skype these settings are changed by the setup program. I suspect you have a firewall you will have to set manually. If you use Zone Alarm or some other firewall you will have to search the for help on your firewall support pages.
