if you are simply unable to connect and/or browse the internet with MSN, you will want to check a couple of things:
1. TCP/IP properties should be set to automatically obtain IP
2. The router should be configured to hand out IP's automatically.
3. Your settings in Internet Explorer/MSN Explorer should be "automatically detect settings".
I use @home. All three computers work fine with the internet. All work with aim. But none of them will connect to MSN Mesenager. I don't know how to go aobut setting ports or whatever for the router to allow connection.
