    MSN keeps disconnecting/reconnecting since router installed

    Since changing my router from a Linksys wrt54gc to wrt54gx msn keeps disconnecting and the re logging in every few mins

    the only other thing that has a problem is betfair poker which does the same

    everything else seems fine

    any ideas ?

    Try updating the router's firmware.
    If that doesn't work try disabling UPnP in your router and forwarding the MSN messenger ports manually.

    will have a look around the router menus to try and do what you say

    any idea what ports are involved ?

    Do you have DHCP enabled?

    If so make sure the lease time is not set to time out/expire every 5 mins or something. :)

    looks like you had the right idea , went to try this but UPnP was already disabled so I enabled it , still early days but seems ok so far :)

    my safecom cheapo router caused this, the only way I could stop it was by blocking the msn port thus forcing it to use http, no problem since then.

    What MTU size setting does the router have?
