Re: connects to the explorer BUT NOT IN MSN!!!!
You need to log onto your router
typically browse to http://192.168.2.1
then go to the firewall section of your device you are intrested in the client IP filter section.
Basically remove the filters that you have inplace for complete freedom.
if you can't rememeber the logon details you will need to reset the unit to factory default settings and set the unit up again from scratch, make sure that you know your ISP log on details before you reset the unit though!! ;).

first prep, we need to make sure that we are getting a connection from your isp by connecting your laptop directly to the router. after ensuring that we are getting a connection.try to connect to msn and msn messenger, if your able to connect hardwired try the wireless connectivity it should work, if it would not work, try optimizing your browser by deleting the cookies in internet options if your using internet explorer, if its firefox do the same thing, then close browser and relaunch it.
My suggestion and it worked for me. Go ahead and pull up your MSN like you are going to log into it. It will ask you save username, password and log in automatically. Make sure the log in automatically is disabled. This should help clear up your issues. It had cleared up mine. Also as far as your hotmail account, bring up your options of that and just double check your setup there may be a few things checked that do not need to be.
Type CD \
Type CD user name (whatever your 'user name' is)
Type CD Application Data
Type CD Roaming
Type CD MSN6
Type DIR /A
You should see your "favourites" file, and maybe a few others.
Enter CD ..
Enter RMDIR /S MSN6
Enter 'y' to confirm that you want to delete the 'MSN6' folder.
Dear Friend, First of all, always check the status of your web browser before signing in to windows hotmail messenger.That means that if you try to sing in, be sure that work offline mode in your browser is not checked.Secondly, have you run the MSN MESSENGER port configuration?Third and most important, have you opened the ports in your firewall? Here is the list of thee ports that MSN Messenger uses: 1366 MSN Messenger
1367 MSN Messenger
1838 : TCP MSN Messenger (Gamevoice)
1863 : TCP/UDP MSN Messenger primary (incoming)
5190 : UDP MSN Messenger (incoming)
6891 : TCP MSN Messenger Filetransfer (incoming) - ports 6891 - 6900, one port per file transfer
6901 : TCP/UDP MSN Messenger Voice Telephony (incoming)
5004 : UDP MSN Messenger, ports 5004-65535. Used for AUDIO and VIDEO. Caution: securty risc! Do not open ALL these ports!
5004 : UDP MSN messenger (dynamically uses a port in this range 5004 –
65535 - requires uPNP in your NAT router and/or firewall). Used for
AUDIO and VIDEO. See Microsoft website for details....
what is the error message that you are getting when trying to sign in to MSN and what is your MSN version? Also, was MSN configured for dial-up internet access prior to the issue? It is possible that your msn browser is not configured to work with your new wireless connection. You may just need to set your connection settings in MSN to use your current internet connection. MSN Technical Support can give you the accurate steps in adjusting the MSN connection settings. you may reach them at www.support.msn.com
I had exactly the same problem. Check your mtu settings on the 2wire. I think the modem is set at 1450 (or there abouts) An article (sorry can't find a link) suggested raising it to 1500 this didnt work for me so I started reducing it instead. Once i set it at 1400 mtu I was able to log on to secure sites again. Hope this helps.
