    I will be using my MSN without any problems at all, then all of a sudden it disconnects/signs me out, when meanwhile, I'm bwosing the internet without a problem, so I'm not losing connection that way. Then 60 seconds later, it re connects me automaticly perfectly fine. I dont undertand why this is happening to me, and it happens alot some days, and barely any other days. I have never ever had a problem with my MSN Messenger Service in the past. So far I have tryed was uninstalling the program, and then reinstalling it again. But that never seemed to work. I even contacted MSN help and that was just as usefull as asking the god dam cat. This problem is really ticking me off so I figured I would come to you guys to see what you had to say!

    are you running bittorrent or any p2p apps? high bandwidth usage can make some routers/connections disconnect

    Nope, not usually anyway. I've intentionally left the computer on after a fresh reset when Messenger running once to try that, and it still happens.

    It could just be the .net service having problems.
