    Good Morning,
    I have been trying to have a voice chat with my friend using MSN Messenger6.But I have been unable to do it even once.
    Can any body tell me why
    The message always says the network is experiencing a problem.Try again later.
    Is there any other IM that supports voice chat?
    Thanks

    newkidtopc.........

    Is your friend using same version ? & do you both have 'Firewalls' running ? If so may need adjusting or turning off !

    Could check out PalTalk as an alternative chat program......excellent program with lots of features.....

    If one or both of you are behind a NAT firewall, highly likely if one of you has a router, then MSN messenger won't work, Yahoo messenger is a good alternative too

    Make sure that both of you are using the same version, and make sure to run the wizard to test your speakers and microphone.

    It's great for voice chatting because of no long distance phone charges. I love it. :D
