Hello

You guys are my last hope...

I have been using a Buffalo WMR-G54 router for the last 3 years, and can't honestly say I have ever had a problem. I dabble in a bit of MSN messenger and have been using the Beta version of live messenger for about 6-8 months. I since noticed I had no security set on the router...so I set up WEP, which seemed easy, except, the router kept then cutting out...so i toolk the secuirty off again. Siince then, I cannot use windows live messenger, only the old standard one that comes with windows, also i cannot visit sites such as myspace and bebo. I have hard reset the router now on several occasions.

I have read online that I need to change the MTU settings on my router, but I cannot find how to.

If you know, or have any suggestions to my annoying problem then please help

SO ITS THIS SIMPLE - I CAN ACCESS THE NET FINE. CANNOT USE MSN MESSENGER LIVE OR MYSPACE OR BEBO >PLEASE HELP

I would first suggest getting back to defaults. There should be a button either hardware on the router that must be depressed for several seconds and/or a restore factory defaults button on one of the router management pages. My experience with loss of signal is due to the WEP setup. Your router and wireless computer may not be exchanging the credentials properly - good chance if turning WEP off allows reconnection. As far as the MTU I don't think you should have to mess with it. Windows (probably Linux too) dynamically changes it depending on communications issues with TCP - packet delivery gurantee. Try upgrading to WPA2. You can also (probably not your problem) download Netstumbler to see if there are other routers close using the same channel or just change the channel. Good luck.
