Can't hit all 6 strings without fret buzz?

Hey everyone. I unfortunately don't know what these types of chords are called. But the one where you place your index fingers to hold down all 5/6 strings at once. (Like the chords in Mr.Blue Sky.)
I can't seem to play all of them at once without something being muted or causing fret buzz. I'm guessing it's a problem with the way I'm playing. No matter how hard I press down I usually end up muting two strings somewhere. Any tips? (Part of me wonders if it's something wrong with my guitar, because I don't remember that being a problem on a guitar I tried at Rockcenter. But still.)

Barre chords?

 

"No matter how hard I press down I usually end up muting two strings somewhere"  I find it easier if you use the side of your finger. But if it happens when you're playing normally too then it's probably a guitar issue.

is this guide any use?, the author probably knows more than I do lol.

 

I'd say give it a fair bit of practice, since they're quite annoying

Thanks for the tips!
 

Yeah it's the wierdest thing, even after a couple weeks I still can't hit barre chords. I am using the side of my finger as well. I'm gonna try the tutorial you sent me!  thank you!

 

I can try using less pressure to see what happens. It might honestly need some setup. It was some used guitar I had sent to guitarcenter used and it came with slightly rusted strings and stuff.
