    k, so since last week i haven't been able to sign in properly in msn messenger. i was using 6.2 when this started happening, i can still sometimes sign in, but 90% of the time i can't and it's really frustrating. so i uninstalled 6.2 and installed 7.0beta (thanks mofos) and it worked like a charm. woke up today in the morning and now it's givin me the same shit except this time (7.0 feature i guess) it says cannot connect do you want to troubleshoot blah blah blah pop up window, which really doesn't help either. reverted to 6.2 like 10 min ago and still doesn't work. what i wanna know is, is anyone else having this problem? if so is there a solution? thanks guys.


    EDIT: one major thing i did find out though is that other accounts work (like signing into other accounts) but i can't get into my main one (that i keep all my friends on). i can sign in thru msn messenger (regardless of version) easily if i'm using a diff account that i have, but i can't sign into my main one??? so is this problem with my account or is it just microsoft?


    edit edit: hotmail works fine btw regardless of account, so no it's not the pass/login.

    do you have a router? maybe it blocks the ports MSN uses.
