I cannot connect my skpye to the internet and thinking it may have something to do with my netgear wnr 1000 router. How do I allow it to access the internet?


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.

  • If you are on a network that uses a proxy server, make sure your proxy settings are correct.
  1. In Internet Explorer: In the menu bar, click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.
  2. In Skype, in the menu bar click Tools > Connection options...
  • Make sure your firewall allows exceptions.
  1. If you are using Windows Firewall, click Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall, and make sure that Don't Allow Exceptions is NOT ticked.
  2. If you are using a different firewall, click Start > All Programs and select your firewall. Make sure that exceptions are allowed. If Skype is listed in the Exceptions tab, remove it.
  3. Sign in to Skype. When prompted, select Yes to allow Skype to connect to the internet.
  • Ensure that Skype is able to use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections.

Skype isn't letting me log in


If you are sure that you are typing in the correct password, then you might need to check your router settings.

Try to reboot your router first, then try again. If you still experience the same issue, you now have to check the firewall settings. Please see instruction per Skpe;
  1. If you are on a network that uses a proxy server, make sure your proxy settings are correct. To check proxy settings in Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings. To check proxy settings in Skype, go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection.
  2. Check your firewall settings. If you are using the Windows inbuilt firewall, click Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall, and make sure Don't Allow Exceptions is not ticked.
    If you are using a different firewall, click Start > All Programs and select your firewall. Make sure that exceptions are allowed. Go to the Exceptions tab. If Skype is listed, delete it. Start Skype. When prompted, select Yes to allow Skype to connect to the internet.
  3. In Skype, go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection and then un-tick Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections

My skype can't connect to internet.I download it again.but i have the same problem! could help me pls?


Hello,

This is may be because your firewall is blocking skype connections!
Go to Control Panel then open Windows Firewall, Just click on the exception tab and try to see if you can locate skype there! If not browse to add skype.exe in the exception list!


C:\Program Files\Skype\

Hope this will help you in resolving the skype issue for you.

Cheers!!!!

Cannot connect Skype to 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.

Skype shuts down when I enable the video on Skype. I tried using an older version of Skype but still encounter the same problem, any ideas out there


With updating SKYPE your firewall must be updated as well.
Exit/Close your current Skype by clicking in system try Skype icon (down near the right corner green spot)
and choosing “Quit” from there if needed.
Open firewall, in programs, deletes Skype.
Run Skype and allow connecting
This also affects SP2 users who should follow above procedure.
With SP2 firewall.
Disabling external firewall will enable XP firewall by default.
So if you disable any other firewall XP firewall will now block your connections.
So remove Skype from XP firewall program list as well
