1. @redenchilada You may not have proper ports open. And or your port for skype is set to the same port that is required by your slandered ISP.

    1. P.S. how is "Skype Wi-Fi" even supposed to work that is so stupid.

      1. @redenchilada They make deals with local hotspot owners to pay them for usage of their hotspots - since the hotspot is still connected to the internet regardless of whether the skype user is being allowed through yet, it can call home to skype to ask whether that user has any credit before letting them through to the internet.

        1. @bitshift It just seems kinda silly to me.

          1. @redenchilada It's an interesting monetisation route for them to take, but yeah, I don't see it catching on.

      2. @redenchilada Technically speaking, it's pretty sound. But I don't know of many (any?) places where the hotspots are part of that, so it probably falls down there.
