Connection problems: Win7, Skype 6.14


I had connection problems since just after I did a windows update last night. (no idea if it's just a coincidence?)

I read through several other posts here, tried reinstalling Skype several times (also re-installed an older version), checked the compatibility mode and still no joy. Oh, I restarted a few times too.

I'm trying to connect using my Skype username and password (I don't have an account of ms) but the screen is just stuck there, it says signing in and the whirly thing (term techy lol) is just Dervishes round and round.

I luuuurv my Skype, absolutely essential for me because I work from home, so I hope someone can help. PLEEEEASE :-)

Thank you

    Hi valsturrock,

    Update that you installed before the problem?

    To view installed updates, you can follow these steps.

    a. Click Start, click all programs and then click Windows Update or Microsoft Update.

    b. on the Windows Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site, click on view update history. A window opens that displays the updates that have been installed or that have failed to install on the computer.

    You try to run the system restore that will repair return the computer to the point while it was working fine.

  • Skype number: unable to connect to the Skype server

    Recently, I had a problem with Skype. It has stopped working. At the time, I was still you connect, but it would never actually connect to the server. Then, later, I tried a disconnection and logging back on in Skype, to realize that I could not even reconnect. It was only stay connected due to the previous settings. After that I tried to make a ridiculously over-the-top uninstall and reinstall, I realized that this was no fault of Skype. The real question was much worse... I had tried to download a replacement for Skype and realized that he was not properly connect either. And didn't the Skype installer that connected to the servers of Skype to update. And does not have the Microsoft fix - it program that communicates with Microsoft servers (Code 80072EFD). And the various troubleshooters that he suggested that I use only or nothing to detect or give the following result:
    Problems found
    Look for links to the URLS used in the SDP Service
    Could come to one or more URL necessary for a diagnostic package runs successfully


    Notably, this doesn't seem to be a problem with my internet, as I tried to use with mobile hotspot from my phone with similar results on Skype and installers.

  • AppStore connection problem!


    I'm running a 21.5 "iMac with OS X El Captan 10.11.5. My problem is that I am not able to connect to iCloud and the App Store on my Mac.

    The error I get is "there was an error connecting to server Apple ID"

    The same username and password works perfectly well on the site of iCloud, my app store on the iPhone and the iPad, but not on Mac.

    What is the way my iMac communicates via the internet? We have a firewall. And oh, the software update for El Capitan is downloading as I type; He didn't even ask for IDs, just started downloading automatically. The same thing happened yesterday with the updates listed on the tab Update on the app store - they have been is downloaded yesterday without asking my login details but it was a rare event; connection problems I described above took place during the last month or so.

    How can I fix?

    Thank you!!

    Try disconnecting all the services using your Apple ID on your iMac, iTunes, FaceTime, iMessage and try to sing.

    If you cannot connect to the iTunes Store - Apple Support

    I'm having a connectivity problem I have never met before. I use a wireless router from Apple with internet cable.

    Yesterday, my computer would be is no longer in contact with my router wi - fi. I get a message that the network could not be attached (I ran the Diagnostics wireless, but it's a whole lot of sense to me empty files). However, I also have a Roku, and which IS connected to the WiFi without problem. I completely stopped and restarted the computer, no joy. Reset the modem and the router, no joy. Still works with Roku, not with the computer. But the weird part is, I have Optimum Online, which allows subscribers to log-in to its hotspots, and it worked! I am connected Optimum wi - fi network on my computer right now.

    So I don't know where is the problem! It is not the router, because this is related work with Roku and is not the computer, because it is connected and working with the Optimum hotspot. What gives?

    Try this!

    Go to the Apple menu > System Preferences > network

    Select a Wi - Fi connection in the sidebar and then click on the button "Advanced...". "in the lower right corner of the screen

    In the list of preferred networks, delete the name of your Wi - Fi network

    Click on the "OK" button to save that change and then 'apply' in the network preferences window.

    Now, go to the Applications folder > utilities > Keychain Access

    Make sure that "Login" keychain is selected and "All items" in the category is selected in the sidebar

    Use the search field to find items that Keychain with the name of your Wi - Fi network and remove

    Quit Keychain Access

    Now try and access your Wi - Fi network

  • Is there a problem with Skype, for now?

    Hello people.

    I run a G4 and 10.411 using an older version of Skype with a software patch that I found in one of the Skype topics on this site. It has been working fine for months. I do not use only audio video. I have a subscription to call land lines. The problem I have is that I can call and hear the person I called, but they cannot hear me. Is there a problem with Skype today? Or they made changes from today that do not allow to use the patch and an old version of Skype? Any information would be appreciated.

    I just found out that there were internet problems yesterday and today. According to me, which may have been the cause of my problems from Skype. Here is the response I got from my ISP tech guy when I sent him to see if there are problems of the internet this weekend: 'Yes. There was a routing problem beyond our network or upstream suppliers. »
