Question about 2wire HomePortal 1800HG Router (1000400229000)
Help me please. When I try to login to MSN Messenger, i get an error message saying the firewall is blocking it. Also when I try to access at website which begins with https: (a secure site), the page simply doesn't load. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?
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.

Reset the windows security files. Go to start, then run and type in cmd. Click ok. In the command prompt type regsvr32 softpub.dll and press enter. Next type regsvr32 wintrust.dll and press enter.
If that doesn't work you may need to lower the MTU setting in your router. This controls the packet size sent and can cause problems with secure site encyption if too large.

You must have your internet browser settings too high, depending on the browser you use it will be in the internet options.
