I have just downloaded Skype and I cannot get it work on my mac. I am running the newest version 2.8. Whenever I try to connect I get the error "Cannot connect to Skype. Please check your network settings and try again". I currently have my firewall disabled. I have read through the Skype forums to try to find a solution and I have seen that a few other people have posted the same issue. The only solution suggested was to deleted a few library files and remove Skype then reinstall, which I have tried twice with no luck.
