It could be a firewall issue try it with your firewall disabled temporarily to prove if it is.

I've been around MSN Chat for a while now and know what you mean. If you see the message about MSN knowing your IP Address then that means you have entered the room successfully. The reason for the constant disconnection is more than likely a flood out of IRC. Since most of these user created rooms have all these bots now and these bots have Onjoin Messages (meaning when you join the room they send you a message) you're getting kicked out of the room because of flooding. Anyways, to take care of this when you enter a room then time out from it again, while it's trying to reconnect, turn your whispers on. This should help. Good luck.
