Can not connect to msn now i have a belkin router

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

What it worked for me was:


Clear your proxy settings in Internet Explorer:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.
  4. Clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click OK again.

Check Internet Explorer security settings:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the Advanced tab, in the Security section, make sure that the Check for server certificate revocation check box is cleared. Also, make sure that the Use SSL 2.0 and the Use SSL 3.0 check boxes are selected.
  4. Click OK.
Apply Changes.
Close Internet Explorer

How can i connect to the msn messenger / google talk

I believe this may be a problem with your handheld device or handheld wireless service and not either of your broadband routers. Your particular PDA does not utilize the same wireless technology that your PCs and laptops do. Your PDA works with GSM,gprs & GPRS technologies. While laptops and PCs most commonly use 802.11a/b/g technologies. In summary, your PDA does not go to the Internet through your broadband routers. In fact, other than connectivity through bluetooth or USB, I doubt your PDA has any interaction with any devices connected to the broadband routers. Now, why can you not access certain services on your handheld? It may be that you are not connected to the right network with your service provider. It looks like this devices works on the Cingular network. There are 3 types of networks available. GSM, which is used primarily for voice traffic. gprs (note the lowercase), which is used for simple text messaging. And GPRS (note the uppercase), which handles all the other types of data transfer, including browsing the web and chatting. First, you may want to check with your service provider that you have an active plan that supports Internet surfing and chatting, such as GPRS (note the uppercase again). Second, once this has been confirmed, make sure the network indicators on the PDA show that you are connected to the GPRS (and not the GSM or gprs) network. Only when you are connected to the GPRS network, will you be able to utilize all the features of your PDA (voice calls, text messaging, and e-mail/web browsing). One way to force the PDA to get on the GPRS network is to just resset the wireless antenna. Second would be to reboot the device. If neither of those work, I would recommend contacting your service provider, as they will be able to help you trouble shoot PDA and network issues further.
