I can't seem to get Skype on my computer now that I am with Plusnet. I would be very grateful if anyone could advise me how to get it. Would I have to make my network unsecure or something? thanks guys.
I keep getting the following message-

Skype Access -hotspot not supported

The current network does not support Skype Access. Please try another available public WiFi network.
Tip: Skype Access doesn't work with private or closed networks.

Re: Skype

Sounds like that's a part of skype designed to work at wireless hot spots, e.g. at starbucks or mcd's or something, you shouldn't need to sign in via that for your own home wifi - every time I've used skype it just asks me for my login and then works, whether on wifi or wired :/
