msn messenger sign in problems

  Bluebird 14:10 25 Nov 2003

I had msn messenger 6.0 on my computer and very rarely would it sign in without at least 10 attempts, it kept telling me I had a problem with my internet connection???
Version 6.1 has just come out so I have upgraded to try and solve the problem but get the same message plus 0x81000370 whatever that means. Once I manage to sign in if I get disconnected it seems to work again straight away it is just the initial sign in that does my head in.
Any ideas out there please
