Question: Skype not working on MacBook Air

I use Skype on my iMac without any problems; however it will not work on my new MacBook Air. I have tried everything suggested in the forum and nothing works.
I get a message "Sign In Error...Wrong Password". However, this is the correct Skype Name and Password that work just fine on my iMac.
Other times I just get the spinning ball which goes on forever and never connects.
I tried to post a message in the Skype forum but it doesn't even recognize my email address!
Someone said something about downloading Flash to the Air?
Is this an Apple problem or a Skype problem?
Thanks for your help....David

iMac Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

Answer:
Answer:
I run skype on my air (2010), macbook pro and iphone. I don't have any issues. Do you have the newest version of skype installed? If not I would suggest downloading the most current version from skype's website and try again, it probably would help to delete the previous version prior to installing the new one.

The first time I tried Skype on my new MB Air it showed as if me and my husband were both off-line, when in fact we were on-line. So I updated Skype - same problem. I then closed Skype and re-opened. I clicked "Always Allow" when it asked if it could access my pw keychain. Then instead of calling my husband from my Skype contact list I typed his Skype name into the search field and called him from there. Suddenly we both showed up on-line and everything worked.

I suggest that you try creating a new Skype identity and see if it works.
