belkin router , messenger doesnt work

  PhiltheFragger 12:27 02 Jan 2008

greetings, have a new Belkin wireless G mimo ADSL 2 router have set it up and the network and security are fine,

However Windows live messenger (MSN Messenger) wont work. I have tried port forwarding on ports 1863, 5190, 6891-6901 on both TCP and UDP. but no joy

There is an unsecured network next door and if I hop on that, it works fine, so it is not the PC or firewall, also, if I sling in an old netgear router, it again works fine.

Emailed Belkin support over christmas, but am still waiting for a reply

Any ideas out there in the real world?

Change MTU for the router and/or your wireless adapter (more likely the router as you can connect via others). click here
