Make sure your internet browser settings are set to default and that you can actually get to other sites besides msn.com before deciding this is a msn web site issue on your firewall. Also, make sure if you have a software firewall like Norton that you allow and have not inadvertantly blocked msn.com. Add msn.com in your browser settings to the 'safe sites' list in browser settings.

I can not seem to connect to msn.com. I can


Couple of things to check. Make sure you software firewall has not been accidentally set to block this site. If you are using an Antivirus program you will find advanced firewall settings in the configuration section.

Secondly, click Tools on the top Menu bar in Internet Explorer, and then choose Internet Options. Re-enter MSN as your homepage and click OK, in the event the URL has been changed from your original page.

Hope this helps.

Internet connection dropping out


Hi powergirl_18

The problem is that your router is trying to connect to the ISP's DNS IP and it's not always connecting. This is a common problem (especially with Cable subsribers Road Runner) You will need to log into your router and go to the Basic Setting and manually put in a DNS number that will work. You should contact your ISP to obtain the IP that will work. If not you can try 209.15.151.2. That's a dedicated DNS, and sometimes it works, and sometimes not. You really need to get a good one from your ISP.

Good Luck

L300 wireless problem


Ive had a similar problem and it was due to windows and the software for the router both trying to run the network and was causing problems.Perhaps check and see if there are two programs running.

Other than that perhaps you could return that router if you can and stick with linksys or netgear.

Question :
Does it cut out the same no matter how close you sit to the router ?

My internet is not working. When MSN messenger checked for basic conductivity it said that the "Default Gateway appears to be offline." Is this a problem with my computer or with my whole...


-that is stating that there is an issue between the gateway AKA your router and the internet.

-try restarting computer first, if that fails to give you an actively working connection. if that fails try the following and that should clear up any issues you may have unless the internet is down for whatever reason, unpayed bill etc...

-so if there is a modem and a router unplug all devices from each other and unplug the router and modems power cords. restart computer. after windows boots up plug in ethernet cords back appropriately (telephone looking cables) to each other. plug the power cord to modem first then the router's power cord and your internet should be restored.

Not able to connect to messenger error code80048820and extended error code80048439 showing


welcome to fixya

this from what i can tel on the internet is a big problem and sound like a lot of people getting it i feel it might be msn has a server problem ....

if you have a router they reseting the router to get a new ip and if you do not have a router then turn on your internet and turn it back on

if this does not work and your on a router then try pluging into a new port or try static ip in your router

if none of theses seem to work try to redownload the program and try running it might of gotten a bad file and it it not reading the cmds right

but i feel this is the server of MSN sounds like they are haveing probloems with conflicting ips


hope this helps out have a good day

I am connected to the internet and on msn but when i try to go on a web page it says internet explorer cannot display the webpage.


This could be only one of two things:

1) Your internet is OK, but the page you are trying to access
is bad

2) Your internet is not connected, but Internet Explorer is loading
MSN from an old cache on your hard drive.

If a single page is bad but you Internet is connection is OK,
then you should be able to get most other pages.
Try:
www.google.com
www.wikipedia.org
www.yahoo.com
www.ebay.com
www.microsoft.com
etc...

If, on the other hand you get nothing but MSN,
you have no internet connection !

===============================

To test it out:

Go to the DOS(like) command prompt, by clicking:

START => All Programs => Accessories => Command Prompt.

At the command prompt type: ipconfig /all

Look at the report, find the network adapter you are using
(if you have more than one, e.g. LAN and wireless)

and look for the value of the "IP Address"

This should reflect the address assigned by your Internet
provider, or the address of you personal router if you have
one:

=============================================
A typical router address = 192.168.1.1, for example
A direct connection could be = 24. 153.14.1 or any other #

BUT

if the IP address is all zeros = 0.0.0.0

then you have no connection to the Internet.
=====================================
If you have no connection (0.0.0.0) then type:

ipconfig / release
ipconfig / renew
ip config / all

If this does not fix the problem, i.e. return a non-zero
IP address,

Run the network setup wizard from the control panel to
repair your network settings.

Also reset your external router (turn it on and off)
if you are using one, and check with your IP provider
to make sure that your account is still valid.
(They will disconnect you if you owe them money
or if they have made a clerical error)

====
If you do have a non-zero IP address, but your
WEB browser still does not connect,

type at the command prompt:

1) Ping www.google.com
2) Ping 72.14.205.104

Compare the results.

If the first PING does not work, but the second one does,
then your address for the DNS (domain name server)
is not setup correctly. You can reach Google directly,
but you have a problem resolving the GOOGLE name to
its binary address, which is what a DNS does, but you
are not reaching the DNS server.

At this point you may want to contact your IP service
provider (tech support line) and he will walk you through
repairing your Internet connection, or send out a tech
in the case of a hardware problem.

Hope this helps,
please rate my answers,
