Cant get skydrive app to work

I just assumed the surface 2 has some issues with the router firewall so I thought to chose this option. In the router firewall settings it mentions the following:
"The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) option lets you set a single computer on your network outside of the router. If you have a computer that cannot run Internet applications successfully from behind the router, then you can place the computer into the DMZ for unrestricted Internet access". So I thought this would solve the problem.

By the way, the surface now works fine with the router, I have no idea how the problem was solved, maybe it was the DMZ setting I mentioned. Any thoughts why this happened in the first place if it was not for the firewall software running on the laptop? Maybe it has to do with the home group where the surface is also a member?

A DMZ is typically where you'd put a webserver so that it can be accessed from outside your network, without giving it (and its visitors) access to your internal network.
Might just have to put it down to "one of those things".
Or a polar vortex.
