I have just gone over to a wireless router and windows messenger will not connect. Yahoo messenger works ok so does Aim. Router used is netgear dg834gt. Thanx in anticipation.

Windows Messenger has long since been disabled by default (post XP SP2) so I can only assume that you meant MSN Messenger?

Configure the Netgear's firewall to allow it, per the manual. I assume that you are posting in this section because you are a novice, but I have to point out that working with networks usually requires some understanding of firewalls.
