1. I am not able to sign in to Skype. When I try to connect I get "Skype can't connect". When I follow the "Can't access your account?" link on the sign-in dialog, I get sent to an ugly-looking "Account Recovery - Problems Signing In?" page with a "Send Email" button which never gets enabled, even though I enter valid email addresses in the text box above. The credentials I am using to try to sign in are valid, and I can sign in to the Skype website with those credentials when I am at work, and used to be able to at home.

  2. When I go to the Skype website, it looks really junky (broken images all over the place, menus as bulleted lists, etc.). (I am seeing this on Windows 10 [Chrome and Edge] and Windows XP [Chrome].)

I suspect that the 2 problems are connected, but I don’t know how.

Any ideas about what’s going on?

  • Is this still happening? What happens when you try to sign in? – Insane Sep 30 '15 at 4:08
  • @Insane: I'll add details to the question. – Jeff Roe Sep 30 '15 at 14:07
  • The problem has to do with the fact that the .css files (and probably other resources) that the web pages are referencing are specified as https://... and something in my router settings is preventing me from being able to access these css files. – Jeff Roe Aug 3 '16 at 2:29
  • It turns out that the problem was due to using "OpenDNS" DNS servers. I switched back to my previous DNS servers and the problem immediately went away. More details here: superuser.com/q/1108068/54239 – Jeff Roe Aug 11 '16 at 14:51
