It depends upon the router itself. Generally the traffic is blocked using a firewall software, but routers can also have firewall built into it. You might find this article (http://www.howtogeek.com/122065/htg-explains-i-have-a-router-do-i-need-a-firewall) interesting. TCP/IP is a base protocol almost used by every networking application & that includes Skype as well. Most of the other protocols ride on top of TCP/IP.
