Messenger 6.1

  PEG007 23:32 07 Feb 2004

I have recently downloaded M 6.1 and have been successful in making video contact and can access file transfer etc. However, I cannot establish an audio link. Test by Wizard indicate all is ok with sound and vision. I'm running Windows XP Pro with Zone Alert and AVG anti-virus system.Any suggestions?

u can use video on msn and voice on yahoo... it kindov works better like that for me.

I had the same problem as Peg - Followed your advice - downloaded "Eyeballchat" - It seems to work O.K. - Checked for Ad & Spyware - It had installed "Browseraid" on my comp - no problems found after getting rid of spyware.

Try turning off zonealarm to get the audio to work.

This worked for me ~ I didn't want to change to yahoo as all my friends were on msn!

no matter what i tried, i couldn't get audio to work, so i used Netmeeting instead. no problems at all.

just another option for you

Thanks guys: I'll give Netmeeting and Eyeballchat a whirl and see what develops.

I have XP pro same as you and had the same problem for many weeks. After many different suggestions etc I gotit to work by just un- enabling the QoS packet on my cable LAN . Also the other guys that you contact must also have windows xp.

Baslla321: How do you un-enable the QoS Packet?
