When this happens I sometimes use the web version

webmessenger.msn.com/

MSN can be frustrating sometimes and one way I fixed logging in was to 1st log in as showing being offline mode 1st then changing my status.

Also try opening Task Manager and select msnmsgr.com from the process tab and select end process then try reopening the msn messenger and log back on.

I have a SBG6580. I am trying to enter the security key but cannot find it on the back of the router...please help


I shall have to assume you in a 'Factory Reset' situation, where you have not signed into the modem, and changed username/password defaults, (new unit, fresh out of the box).
Do not connect to the cable company yet. First, secure the modem.....
From the User Manual, page 9..... You do have a User Manual?
1. Open a browser window, after connecting your computer.

Use a 'wired' connection. Never change security settings, using Wi-Fi connection.....

2. Type in the IP address for the modem 192.168.0.1 in the URL address. That should take you to the modem's password change window.
3. Type in the default Username: admin.
4. Type in the default Password: motorola.
5. Type in your new username in the Password Change Username field.
6. Type in your new password in the New Password field.
7. Re-enter your new password
8. Re-type your new username in the Current Username Password field.
9. Click Apply.
10. Connect the modem to the cable company. You should shortly be able to go online, after the modem has synchronized to the cable company. That usually takes about a minute.

Your question asks for the 'security key'. That generally refers to the Wi-Fi settings. If that is the case, go to the 192.168.0.1 address, sign-in, and click on Wireless. Follow the obvious directions.... Or, post here again....

How do i set up an email account


MSN boasts its free email service, Hotmail, as the "efficient way to do e-mail."
Indeed, MSN offers several perks such as advanced security protection, email accessibility with your cell phone and one-stop inboxing, or the ability to bring all your email addresses together.
Once you complete the process of setting up an account with MSN, you'll be able to use your new Hotmail email address.

Open up your Internet browser to the MSN "Create your email address" page.
Select the country or region of the world you live in.

Choose the name you would like to appear before the "@hotmail.com" part of the address. Besides letter and numbers, you can also use hyphens, periods and underscores to personalize your email address.
Press "Check Availability" when you have typed in your desired name to make sure it is not already claimed.

Create a password for your account; your password must have six or more characters.
You'll be prompted to type in your desired password twice.
To protect yourself from identity theft and fraud, you should create a strong password for your email account.

Select a security question from the pull-down menu and provide the answer to the question.
In case you forget your password, you'll be able to retrieve that information upon giving the correct answer.
Or, provide another email address that you use; MSN will send your forgotten password to that email address.

Provide your personal information such as your name, birth date, gender, state, zip code and the time zone you live in.
Enter the characters you see on your screen for verification purposes.
Read through Microsoft's service agreement and online privacy statement and click "Accept" when you are done.
Navigate to the "Sign In" page for Hotmail.
Type your user name (name@hotmail.com) and password in the appropriate spaces; click "Sign In."
Now you are ready to use your MSN email address.

I can't find my Hotmail account


Step 1:
Hotmail has change to oulook.
MSN, formerly known as the Microsoft Network, is an assortment of websites and services provided by computer and Internet giant Microsoft. When users sign up to the MSN website, they are given the choice of choosing a wide range of services from the Windows Live network, which includes email through Hotmail, online storage in SkyDrive and the messaging program MSN Messenger. One advantage MSN users enjoy is having one account name and password that allows them to use all MSN services.

MSN, or the Windows Live network, provides users the opportunity to create new passwords rather than recover old passwords. Go to the MSN website or any Windows Live site and click the "Sign in" phrase. This will take you to the login page, which will require you to enter your username. Click the "Forgot your password" phrase. The reset password page will then open. Select among the three choices which one suits best your current needs. Choose the option "I forgot my password" and click the phrase that appears below the choice once you have selected it. Enter your MSN username, or Windows Live ID. More often than not, this is the email address that was used when you originally signed up with the MSN or the Windows Live network. Type the word of the phrase that appears in the captcha image located directly below the username field. You will also have the option to request a new captcha image or listen to the letters being dictated. Click "Next." The MSN or Windows Live network will then send a password reset message to the email that was originally used to sign up. Check the aforementioned email address. There may be some instances in which the email sent by the MSN or Windows Live Network could be re-directed to your spam folder. Check there if you can't find the message five to 10 minutes after requesting for a password reset. Open the email sent by MSN and click the appropriate link sent in the email to confirm the request for a password reset. This will open your default browser and take you to the Password Reset page that will allow users to create a new password for the account rather than retrieve the old password. The page will also provide a "Sign In" option to test out the user's new password. http://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/phishing/windowsliveid.aspx

Can't log in to msn.com


When you log in to MSN a website powered by Microsoft you also log in to its Hotmail and Messenger programs.


Hotmail is MSN's email program, while Messenger is an instant messaging and networking program.


Because Messenger and Hotmail are connected to MSN, if you have problems logging into one program, you'll likely have issues logging in to all of them.


Register for Account


The first step to logging in to any MSN-powered sites is to have a Windows Live ID.

This includes an email address, which acts as your username, as well as a password.


The email address must end in either "@hotmail.com," "@live.com" or "@msn.com."

Even though these emails use different domain names, all can be accessed by logging in to the Hotmail homepage.


If you try to log in to MSN or any of its partner sites like Hotmail or Messenger using anything but a Windows Live ID, you won't be allowed to access or create a profile and will be prompted to create a Windows Live account.


Incorrect Password


The most likely reason you aren't able to sign in to your MSN accounts is user error.

Entering an incorrect email address or password will return an error message, informing you that either the email address you provided isn't registered with MSN, or that you entered an incorrect password.


MSN and, hence, Hotmail and Messenger passwords are case sensitive, so check your keyboard's settings before retyping your password a second time.


If you don't remember your password but know your Windows Live ID, you can opt to reset your password by answering some security questions pertaining to your account.


Browser Issues


A slow browser can impact your ability to log in to your MSN accounts.

Try deleting your browser's cookies and clearing its cache before attempting to sign in again. This process varies from browser to browser.


For example, in Internet Explorer, click on the gear icon, "Internet Options" and click "Delete" under Browsing History.

Check the "Cookies" box and click "Delete."


Internet Issues


A slow Internet connection can also hinder your login attempts.

Check your Internet connection to make sure you're connected to the Internet.


Also, check that you're working online instead of offline, which can prevent you from logging in.


Click on the "File" tab at the top of your browser, and make sure there's not a check mark next to the words "Work Offline."


If there is, click on the words to uncheck that option and sign in again.

There might be some interference from another browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in MSN.com) or you preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them.


Hope this helps.
