Default Windows Live Messenger Problems...

I am useing a router (SMC7004VBR)

and for some reason I can't sign into windows live messenger while I am pluged into it

(+ sometimes I can't upload or send pictures, and the connection will time out occasionally)

If I unplug my line from the router and plug it strait into the dsl thing it works fine...

also, windows messenger 4.7 works fine with the router

does anybody know what's wrong?

-------here's the error I keep getting:---

Sorry, we were unable to sign you into Windows Live Messenger at this time. Please try again later.

To let us try and troubleshoot the problem, click the Troubleshoot button.

Error Code: 80048820
Extended Error Code: 80048439


I've done the troubleshoot thing and everything checks out fine

I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to networking.. so I hope somebody can give me some easy instructions to follow to resolve this problem

thanx in advance

Well i get this sometime with my DLink router. What i do is just a soft reset of the router. Go to your router setupo and reset it. If you can. My Linksys router doesnt have that option so i have to reset the PC a couple of times for it to allow the connection.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
