MSN now will not sign in. Although xfire does.

Are there settings on the router or MSN that I have to change to allow it to sign in.

Thanks

Have you tried the router makers page they should have a port list that needs to be open for MSN to work.

I have jsut had a look at the website (click here) and I can't seem to find anything about the ports that need to be open.

click here this tells you how to set up port fowarding it may help.

Try setting the MTU in your router to 1400, sometimes with MSN that helps.

I found this, but the problem is that I do not know what 'Protocol', 'Port Start/End' to enter for MSN. Also I have enabled UPnP.

also, what is the MTU?

Sorry not great with routers.

Are we talking MSN.7.5? if so there is a connection help in tools/options/connection when u open MSN,maybe that may help you.

Yes this is MSN 7.5.

When I run a test using MSN, it says that it cannot connect because there is not internet connection, yet my internet is fine and all works okay.

Well i found this
MSN Messenger, 1863,6891-6900,6901 6901

these i think are the ports that need to be open
taken from click here

so your start one would be 1863 and the end one 6901?
