    Hi

    I am having some trouble with my msn...
    some people can see when i am online, and some cannot.
    I can not add contacts either. It keeps saying the attempt was unsuccessful.

    I have tried uninstalling messenger 6.2, and nothing seems to correct the problem.

    I have a dlink wireless router.. i believe the 624+.
    Any ideas? Seems like such an isolated problem, nothing that is common.

    I scoured google and havent come up with much.

    thanks
    :confused:

    how many people do u have on ur contact list max is 150 unless u use trilian. also make sure u have all your settings right eg proxy, and if they cant see you online make sure that they arent blocked on list thats all i can think of now

    ohh ok, then something else might be the problem, try using the web version of msn messenger if the same thing happens maybe its ur connection webmessenger.msn.com

    Maybe some type of spyware is causing this problem. Scan your PC with Spybot Search and Destroy.

    One of my friends couldn't use Video/Voice chat through MSN due to some spywares. So I guess that 'might' be the problem.
