Is this your house WiFi? In other places, or if your parents configured it, Skype may be blocked. It's kind of weird, because you can still receive messages, but you can't send them out.

Check your firewall on your PC perhaps that might be blocking it.

If your WiFi does block it, you can usually remove that block. You would do that by:
1. Open a command prompt (type CMD in the windows search thingy)
2. Type "ipconfig"
3. Look for something called a "default gateway"
4. enter the default gateway in the address bar of your web browser
5. login. If you haven't been here before, you probably have a default password. You can google around for what it is on your specific router. Xfinity uses "admin" for the username  and "password" for the password.
6. You can now look around the settings for blocked URLs, and remove them if they happen to be skype.

Hope this works!  :D
