    Hey, guys. I was wondering if any of you could help me with a problem I've been having with Windows Live Messenger.

    I am able to sign into WLM, but after a few seconds of connectivity, it seems to interrupt my internet connection; I get a "Limited or No Connectivity" message from my computer for a few seconds, and then it connects again, and the cycle repeats. I am connecting wirelessly to my own WAN. My brother, who also connects wirlessly, doesn't have the same problem. He's running Windows Vista Home (?) SP1 on a Gateway laptop of some sort.

    I am running Windows XP Home SP3 on a Compaq Presario V2000. 2GB RAM, 2.0 GHz processor. If you have any more questions to ask that might help me solve this, ask away. I posted the issue in my journal, and from there it was determined that this is not a firewall issue.

    Uninstalling and reinstalling WLM did not solve the problem.

    I also tried System Restore to solve both this and another problem of mine. However, my restore points seem to be corrupted somehow; I tried restoring to a date in each of June, July, and August, and System Restore failed on all three counts.

    It seems my computer is more messed up than I thought it was. :p

    Any and all insight is appreciated! Thanks in advance, guys! [​IMG]

    Hi to everybody who may be watching this thread.

    I was unable to find the source of the problem (slightly disappointing), but upgrading to the WLM 9 Beta seems to have stopped the problem.

    If the problem comes back, I'll bring it back here.
