    I have messenger on my home system and very rareyly use it.

    When I do use it, it typically automatically disconnects every few minutes without me really knowing.

    I don't know till I try to send a message or something like that.

    That's when the status says I've been disconnected and I have to manually reconnect.

    Advice on what might be going on here?

    Not really sure what was involved, but I believe Admiral Michael had a similar problem. Can't recall if I was talking to him on MSN or if he posted about it. Maybe he will post, or could send him a PM :)

    I believe he fixed it, but can't recall.

    Sigh, I'm no help :(

    Does it just sign you out, and seems like nothing happend (never signed in) or does it say it's trying to reconnect, but having problems?

    Just signs me out. I don't even know I am signed out till I try to type something and send it. Then it tells me I am disconnected.

    I had the same problem awhile ago, it was because I made an .net account on another computer, and that msn was set to connect on startup, and thats why. Have you signed in anywhere else or anything like that?

    I haven't, nope.

    This is the only system that I use my personal accounts on. It's just annoying as heck that it keeps signing me off :(

    The only things that come to mind is, settings in Msn (most likely not), setting in the router (firewall, and windows firewall)

    I'm not sure what else it could be, some kind of virus? Probably not but hey

    i have the same issue... i just blamed it on microsoft and moved on however if there is a fix, i'd be interested too ....

    i don't think its a router/firewall problem, because i have friends that also have this issue, and most of them still dialup {no router}....

    I experience this not too often but it does happen with me randomly. MSN will the only application I am running that is actively connecting the internet and when I havent typed anything for a while, it signs out and attempts to sign back in, but not always, I can leave it for ages and it wont do that.

    But I have noticed that when Im downloading a lot, whether it be a large file
    taking a long time, or running some programs that download stuff, like star downloader, MSN signs out and attempts to sign back in. Same with eMule, and DC++.

    I think everyone one time or another has encountered this, but Sazar's problem is alittle different. I'm going to do some research tonight, let ya know if I find anything.

    Work sucks, that being said.

    I did have a problem of being disconnect about every 2 hours. I narrowed it down to my router, looks like it was killing, from it's point a view, inactive connections. They wer eactive cause it would happen during a group chat and such.

    I ended up diteching the router and moved to Smoothwall. Problem SOLVED! and I haven't looked back, it's so customisable too :)


    and no they are not paying me to endore em.
