Thank you for your question. I amCustomerand I look forward to helping you with your issue today.

Are you sure that you have proper internet connection on the computer?

Please note that you can be "offline" even though Skype is open, check your status, change it from offline to online, busy or away. Or. please, try to change your status first to "Away" (or "Do not disturb") and then to "Online".

If the issue persists, simply restart your modem and the computer. Check if the issue persists.

If the issue persists, or you have any questions, please be back and let me know.
