I have not been able to connect to any of contacts in almost 3 weeks!

  • anabannana Apr 07, 2009

    My internet works perfectly sometimes...
    It says I have a strong connection but it drops ones and a while, sometimes it gets so bad that It disconnects every 10 seconds. Normally I end up restarting it once or twice before it's okay again.
    It's probably because my internet isn't very stong and can't handle when Internet Explorer and Msn is open. That is normally when it tends to screw up.
    The main issue with my internet connection is that it says it's connected but the little computer icons are grey which means something isn't connecting properly...
    So normally when I go to sign in msn that stupid code thing comes up, so when I press troubleshoot it shows me that "key ports" are the problem. If it's not the key ports normally I can fix the problem by reconnecting.. but I don't know what to do for key ports..
    Like I don't know what causes the problem, I tried fixing the firewall settings and proxy settings no luck. HELP!

I had the same problem and I tried everything I found in all kind of forums but nothing every seems to work.
What it worked for me was:

First:

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.
Then:

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

Run Windows Live Messenger and You Are Ready To Chat Again!!

Try connecting to this URL:
http://status.messenger.msn.com/Status.aspx

If you can connect, then there are several different things that could be wrong:

I use CP. What worked for me was Start > Run

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled


Done.


Restart messenger.


If that doesn't work, try

Start > Run
Type:
regsvr32 Softpub.dll Mssip32.dll Initpki.dll

Wait for all three boxs to popup confirmation.

If that doesn't work:

Start > Run

timedate.cpl

Internet Time Tab

Update Now Button.

After sync, try again.

I hope that fixes everyone's problems. I've never had this problem until I installed the latest Messenger.

Are you using a router? if so, it's possible that your router has firewall that is blocking the connection. you can try to open/forward port 1863.
if you have other computers on your network, check if they are having the same problem. if not, a firewall software or an antivirus software is blocking the connection. try to disable any firewall or any antivirus software on the concerned computer and check if you'll be prompted with the same error message.

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Can i ask wad is SP3? i was having the same problem, it say tat Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable.Please try again later. And the Error code...


Hello,
Try this.. All u have to do is: uncheack the "remember me" and the "remember my p@ssword" thingy and re-type ur "username" and "p@ssword" again, And click "sign in". WAIT... For about 2,5 min. Then a new window will pop-up, and there will be a button saying "Troubleshooter", Click on that button, and then another window will pop-up saying "Windows Live Messenger Connection TroubeShooter" You will then see in that window, a list of "Test Results" There will be listed a list that will have a list of stuff wich u need to have running good to make windows live messenger work. Slowly yet fastly you will see next to each iteam will apear a "check mark" or a "warning sign". Now the fixing part: When all of the list has a symbole next to it, then u can see wich stuff is working fine and wich have problems, if, There's more then one wich has a "warning sign" next to it thats fine. then when all the test results have a symbole next to them click "Repair" ( if one of the iteams has a "warning sign" next to it ) if not then click "restart" if so, then click the button then. wait.. 1,2 min. and when its finished close the window and u should see that ur windows messenger is trying to log in again wait and there u go!!! TIP: Key Ports is the most common problem.
Thank You for using FIXYAA!!
