That means Windows Live Messenger is unable to contact the authentication server.

Open up Live Messenger and go to Tools and go to Options. Under Connection Settings, choose Advanced Settings. Make sure there are nothing in the proxy fields. Make sure the SOCKS area has nothing in it and click okay until you get back to the Messenger window and try to sign in.

If that doesn't work and you are running Windows Vista, click start, type: cmd, right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications, click Run As Administrator, type the following: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled", rress enter, restart your computer”

Hope this helps!

Error: 81000306 1. Make sure that you are connected to the Internet. Start Microsoft Internet Explorer, and then try to visit the following Web sites:
Messenger service status Microsoft web site If you cannot visit these sites, contact your Internet service provider (ISP) for information about how to set up your Internet connection so that you can visit both secure (https) and non-secure (http) sites. 2. If you are able to visit the Messenger service status page and notice that there is a service issue, please visit the site later to determine when the service is available so that you can sign into Messenger. If the site indicates that the all systems are stable and running, go to the next step.
3. Clear the proxy settings in MSN Messenger. 3.a. Start Messenger.
3.b. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3.c. Click Connection in the left navigation pane.
3.d. Click Advanced Settings in the Connection Settings section.
3.e. Delete the content of the SOCKS field.
3.f. Click OK two times to save the settings.
3.g. After you clear the proxy settings, verify if you are able to sign into Messenger. If you are still not able to sign into Messenger then please go to the next step.
4. If you are using Windows Vista, disable the Auto Tuning Networking feature: 4.a. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then right-click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator.
4.b. Click Continue when Windows requests permission to continue.
4.c. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
Note: This command disables the Window Auto Tuning feature. 4.d. After you disable the Auto Tuning Networking feature, verify if you are able to sign into Messenger. 5. If you are still not able to sign into Messenger then please re-enable this feature using the information below and then go to the next step. 5.a. Re-enable the Auto Tuning Networking feature by typing the following command at the command prompt, and then pressing ENTER: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
Note: This command enables Window Auto Tuning again so that you can take advantage of the network throughput performance increase it provides.
6. If you are using Windows Vista and you also use a router (eg. Linksys, D-Link, Netgear) on your home network to connect to the internet please visit the router manufacturer’s website to update to the latest firmware for that product.

I continually am getting error code 81000306 when attempting to sign in to windows live messenger. I have tried all available steps, including a registry cleaner, a re-install of the messenger etc....


Hi srmbb,

That error code has to do with firewall issues. Try updating the router's firmware at the manufactures website>downloads and drivers or support.
