I got this error again today, google tells me to update firmware for router so I did. Still same error, for some reason none of the PCs on my network can connect to messenger at all, not even web based versions like ebuddy. I find this strange...anyone have a solution?

did you reset your BIOS and forget to set the time?

Make sure your ports aren't locked.

1) Run Command prompt (cmd) with "Run as Administrator"

2) Type: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled"
press Enter

It should say ok, then log into msn

I've tried that many times, and hasn't worked. Both my PCs are having the same problem, one runs XP Pro SP3, and this laptop runs Windows 7 build 7000. I'm gona try to hook up internet directly to my laptop and see if that lets me sign in, if not I'll call my ISP and start shouting.

Id say theres something wrong with the routers firewall if the problem concerns all the PC's in your network...

Alltho, for what I have been checking this issue out, many other ppl have the exact same issue at their hands...

I've been googling for 2 days, nothing has changed on my network at all. I just connected to some random wifi signal, and still can't get on...makes me wonder if it's a problem with my ISP. Gona try connecting directly to the modem.

go to your email account sign in, change your password
(the actual MS Email website, not MSN Messenger)

this error happens when something goes wrong with ur PW

changing it will solve the problem (its annoying when this happens sometimes)
something to do with MS Servers

but then you can sign onto MSN again

ok at this case, uninstall all Windows Live Products

download and install the latest MSN Messenger (2009)

http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger

and see what happens

make sure the router Firewall is off
and just have a firewall on your desktop computers and allow programs, thats all you need

just noticed your using a Beta os, if you can't get it working properly, maybe something to do with network issues in 7, its still Beta software after all, id say reformat back to Vista or XP (depending on what one you upgraded from, and stay with that til Windows 7 retail release)

I'll give it a try, back in a few! Formating to another OS would be useless, my desktop running XP can't sign in on that account either.
