    I seem to have problems connecting to the msn site. both through my msn messenger and the website itself. I just bought myself a new router and I am sure I configured the firewall properly.

    I can connect to other sites just fine but not msn. very strange I checked my firewall and none listed saying that it's blocking it. I don't go through any proxy.

    is the msn site down? or is it me? it has been two days, a famous site like this can't be down for two days

    Do you get any errors when trying to connecting to MSN :)

    Troubleshoot connectivity problems
    If you have problems when you sign in to Windows Live Messenger, try any of the following troubleshooting techniques to correct the issue:
    Check your Messenger connection settings:
    If you can't sign in to Messenger, the connection settings (Settings associated with your Internet connection.) in Messenger might be preventing you from connecting to Windows Live ID or .NET Messenger Service.
    Select Tools, and then click Options.
    Under Connection, click Advanced Settings.
    In the Settings dialog box, click Test in the HTTP section. When the test results appear in the Connection Tester dialog box, click OK.
    Click OK, and then click OK again.
    Use the test results to determine which settings are causing the connection issue.
