Either Marc or balpha once said it doesn't matter that you're logged in, it matters when you logged in. Try logging out of the sites and then logging back in and trying chat.

You usually get a message about your login data being too old though – Michael Mrozek Nov 2 '10 at 17:49
True. I'm not sure what is actually happening though. – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 2 '10 at 17:55
Still problem is not solved. – chanchal1987 Nov 2 '10 at 18:11
@chanchal1987, Please provide details about what is happening? Do you get an error message? – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 2 '10 at 18:13
No error messages. Only showing "Log In" link in the top of the page. – chanchal1987 Nov 2 '10 at 18:17
@cha What happens when you click it? – Michael Mrozek Nov 2 '10 at 18:18
Problem is automatically solved after refreshing the chat page some time. – chanchal1987 Nov 2 '10 at 18:18
@cha I'm not entirely sure that you're having a problem at all. You're not logged in to chat, and then you click "login" and you are? That's what's supposed to happen – Michael Mrozek Nov 2 '10 at 18:22
I clicked login several times. Its opened an Login page and asking me to log in any of the stackexchange site. I don't know why this problem solved automatically. – chanchal1987 Nov 2 '10 at 18:24
