I've installed SkyDrive on my computer, however I can't seem to get it to connect. It keeps saying there's a problem with the SkyDrive servers. I've reinstalled it several times, and I know I have the right login.

It works on Also, a box pops up saying there was a problem with the server, so it might not have even gotten that far. – Arlen Beiler Jan 25 '13 at 16:44

The problem could be a DNS issue. Try setting the DNS server on your computer to That's Google's servers, and that fixed the problem for me. Go to your connection status > Properties. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 and click Properties. Click "Use the following DNS server" and type in Close all the windows, clicking Ok or Close, then try again.
