    I have been referred to MSN as a source of help for this problem. Although I am an AOL subscriber, I access MSN Messenger, and the MSN Gaming Zone daily. My PC uses Windows XP, and for the past few days I have have been booted from both MSN areas, after a short time of usage. Then I am also booted from AOL. Upon sign on, a warning comes up saying that I have limited or no connectivity to my local area connection. I was told by AOL NOT to disable this, as it may also disable my connection to AOL.

    Can anyone tell me what to do, and how to "fix" this? I am not a computer genius by any stretch..only intermediate ability..but this is driving me up a wall. I haven't seen anyone else having this problem. I also recently uninstalled a Spyware program that I had installed . Could this have mucked up my MSN abilities? Anxiously awaiting some suggestions. Thank you

    this is a common problem with windows xp OS upgraded to sp2. to fix this, just go to control panel > network connections > right click on LAN5 > select properties > on the general tab, uncheck the box that says notify me if limited or no connectivity and that should do the trick! :) :cool:
