Preferred Solution: msn messenger disconnecting/reconnecting

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
My pc was working perfectly for about a year now, but these days it started having problems.
In the past few weeks it started disconnecting from the internet with the message: you don't have a valid
ip configuration. (It was working on the other pc connected to the router with lan, and on the notebook connected through wifi)
A reboot of the pc/router did always solve my problem in these situations.
Yesterday, my internet connection started connecting/reconnecting, and I couldn't solve it in any way, not with
a restart, and not with that network repair tool (idk it's name, I have hungarian windows). When it stayed connected for more then 2 seconds I was even able to load google, youtube, other sites,
I tried some solutions, like disabling the energy saver settings, setting it to 10mb half duplex, etc, but nothing worked, my
internet kept connecting/reconnecting.
Today I started my pc and it works perfectly.. Any ideas on how to solve it? I have the newest lan driver.

My mobo is Asrock 960gm-vgs3 fx.

A:Network keeps reconnecting

It appears that you manually configured the IP for at least one system.
DON'T do that - - make sure all systems use DHCP

Hi there!

I recently have come across an issue where my internet randomly disconnects, mostly while on Skype or downloading video games and cannot figure out the issue at all. It usually downloads fine for about 1 minute and then disconnects completely. 0kbps and internet drops on my computer alone.

I'm kinda new to tech forums so if you guys need any information let me know.

A:Internet keeps disconnecting randomly

Hi, I had this problem a few years ago, which was fixed by buying a new USB wireless dongle.
But if you are using wireless connection to the router, try an ethercable instead and see if the same thing happens.
Are you using a laptop? If so it could be faulty wireless 802.11 board.
If you are using a USB wireless adapter, it could that the pc is turning off the power to the USB ports to 'save power', that can be changed if required.

Hello, I've had this problem for a good while and cant seem to find many answers. What happens is that I will be online and everything is fine untill my wife or daughter decide to get on to one of their devices that use the same wifi (ipad, ipod, phone) and everyone will get disconnected. After 2 or 3 minutes everyone will be able to connect again, for a few minutes at least, then we will get disconnected again. Rinse repeat.

Our router is a Belkin wireless G-plus mimo, Model# f509230-4
Modem is Westell model 6100, e90-610015-06
My wireless router in the bedroom connected to the PC is a linksys wusb6300 (blinks orange light at the time of dissconnect)

Any ideas on how we can stop constantly disconnecting each other would be greatly appreciated.

*just saw I posted this in the wrong place..ugh

Moderator note: Moved.

A:Disconnecting from internet when others use the wifi

Two suggestions:

First, make sure you have the latest firmware for that router

Second, after updating the firmware, access the router config and set the MTU to 1492.

This will stop packet fragmentation and all devices will then be protected from a packet reassembly overflow condition, failing all existing connections.

Hello all. I hope this isn't in the wrong section...
My computer recently has begun to disconnect itself from the internet randomly. One time, it did it for an hour and would keep reconnecting but soon after disconnecting again. I've eliminated the chance it was my whole service by asking members of the household if their internet was acting up.

Here's another strange thing that will happen when the problem occurs. Upon shutting down to try and reconnect, my computer will be stuck on the shutdown screen.

I found one minidump from yesterday, but I'm not sure how much of a help it will be. I'll attach it anyway.

Please inform me if there is any other information that you require.

I currently have as my ISP. Every 5 minutes i disconnect from the internet and almost reconnects instantly. This is very irritating for some applications and games. I figured it was because renews their DHCP every 5 minutes and my router somehow blocks the renew causing the disconnect. Any ideas on how to fix this problem? My router is WRT54G, Firmware Version: v1.00.9 . ISP disconnecting

Sounds like you've got a firewall enabled that is rejecting the DHCP renewal. Try disabling that to resolve this - or switch to a static IP, they're free for residential customers.

Hi all mrs got a toshiba satelite and on wireless and even through ethernet we keep getting message when trying to connect to the internet saying re dialling or re connecting what could be the cause of this . is it something like wireless card faulty or network connections all gone wrong i dont want to fiddle with it till i get some advice please thanks all

A:Toshiba Satellite keeps saying reconnecting/dialling when I try to go online

Could be anything... model, age, setup, operating system... need for a re-installed or upgraded driver, hard drive failing, defective component... defective wireless modem... wireless device that is too close to a wall or other interference...
First, you might try downloading and re-installing the drivers... then try installing another hard drive, if you have one handy... That will be one way to test your current installation...

I have a rather old Linksys WUSB11 Wireless-B USB adapter that worked fine with my old D-Link DSL-2640T Wireless G router. However when I changed to D-Link DIR-615 router, problem arises. My USB adapter keeps disconnecting for a few minutes and reconnects to the router. Signal strength was averagely 3 bars that time. It was used on Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Any idea on why is this happening? Thanks in advance.

USB is notorious for being flaky and i would and have always advised against using it, however you could try changing the channel on your router to another number this may fix the issue for you.

Hey guys, I've been getting disconnected from a lot of websites for the last few days now and I'm getting sort of frustrated. I'm on facebook, looking around and then I decide to go on google for something and then it tells me i'm disconnected.. It's not really disconnecting but It shows me that the site can't be connected. Even if it says that, I can still go on facebook. Facebook doesn't seem to have any problems but all the other sites I try to get onto are unable to be connected.

My wireless internet keeps die randomly, just the connection dying. The internet stays connected to the router but i have no connection on my computer until i repair the connection to which it works fine again for about another hour.
So i have decided to try and find out why this was happening, which is why i have done the hijackthis scan.
So if anyone would be so kind to see if there is any problems going on here, would be apprieciated.
And if there is any of way of finding out why my connection keeps dying randomly would also be very much apprieciated.

A:Internet randomly disconnecting

Welcome to TechSpot! Hopefully I can give you some guidance.
First, you need to understand that we don't use HijackThis to 'screen' for problems.

About the connection interrupt:
1. If you use a router: Disconnect the power from the router and the modem. Wait about 30 seconds. Then reconnect the power to both. This is known as power cycling If frees up the memory in the router.
2. Check the manufacturer's site of this:
C:\Program Files\TalkTalk\TalkTalk SNU5630NS 05 Wireless USB Adapter Utility\TTUSBBGMonitor.exe
See if there is any firmware update available. If there is, follow the instructions and update the driver.
3. Check the setting you have for this:
O23 - Service: ES lite Service for program management. (ES lite Service) - Unknown owner - Crogram FilesGigabyteEasySaverESSVR.EXE Easy Energy Saver it's a motherboard utility that manage the power of CPU, fan and may others.
Click on start> All Programs> double click on GigabyteEasySaver and check the settings. It might be that it is closing the system down for some reason.
4. If you have checked all the equipment, cable and settings and still have the problem, contact your ISP are report the problem.

I've just got a new laptop and for some reason, I can connect wirelessly fine but when everyone else in the household comes on after a while it will disconnect everyone from the router and it has to be turned on and off. We had this problem a while back when my brother came back from university and started using his laptop. We have around an xbox 360 and 3 computers/laptops connecting at any one time, and none of them doing any heavy downloading.

I do not think it's wireless interference from other devices since it always seems to happen when a certain number of devices connect to the router.

I have a D-link DIR635 router, and we all connect via wireless G or ethernet.

Please help, this has been a recurring problem and it's beyond me,
I can provide router logs etc. just ask!

I have a Toshiba Satellite M/40/M45 Laptop. We have Verizon DSL. I had my desktop connected to the Modem and my laptop linked to the Linksys Router and everthing was working fine. Verizon told me that they had a new modem with a built-in router that would run much faster. I got the unit and replaced my old set up with the new one. Since then, my laptop which is in another room about 15 feet away keep getting disconnected from the internet when browsing or when it's idle.
I've call verizon several times but they don't have a clue what the problem is. Looking in this forum. they did a diagnostic test to see if it was receiving the signal and it was. When the network is connected, it says the signal is excellent.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
thanks in advance

While installing the new optical drive, you might have inadvertently loosened one or more connectors. Recheck all data and power cables to make sure they are tight, including all those to the motherboard.

Recently my internet started disconnecting a ton during the day and I am really looking for a fix to this problem When my internet starts disconnecting it ll happen anywhere from every minutes to every hour The only ways I can get the internet to start working again Wired Internet Disconnecting Connection Randomly after this happens are to go into Network Connections through the control panel and then right click Local Area Connection and press repair or by restarting the computer After doing one of those things my computer will start disconnecting again soon after I m running Windows XP and have a Netgear WGT v router However I believe that my problem is not any type of hardware error because it only happens during the day and never happens to me at night at all The computer is using a wired connection but whenever the internet stops working on here Wired Internet Connection Disconnecting Randomly it will still work on all of the other computers connected to the same router I have also scanned the computer for viruses and spyware but have not found anything This problem is really bugging me so I d be very happy if anybody could help me If you need any additional information feel free to ask nbsp

A:Wired Internet Connection Disconnecting Randomly

What did you use scan the computer for pest? Also have you updated XP for patch release lately? How about the Netgear have you updated the firmware on it?

You can try to backup the router configuration to a file.
Then do a 90 second reset on it.
This would mean you keep on holding the reset button on the rear of the router with power cord attached while perform the following:

1. press and hold reset for 90 secs
2. during the first 30 secs you will unplug the power cord
3. during the second 30 secs you will plug-in back the power cord
4. during the third 30 secs at the end of that you would release and unplug the router for 15 seconds

Now try it again and see if the router works now..

In noticed that when i plug my ethernet cord in the LAN ethernet intergrated port my local area connection 2 keeps connecting and disconnecting. It tries to connect for about 12sec then it tries to reconnect for about 5-6sec, and this keeps doing that same process over and over. I have noticed in the back the amber light blinks every 3sec and the green light is solid. Do you think the port is about the fail or can i have any suggestion? I also reset the modem and disconnect the cable and put plug them back in.

A couple of weeks ago my internet connection began disconnecting and reconnecting several times a day. The disconnects seem to be more frequent when more bandwidth is being used. Every time it disconnects the DSL light on the modem blinks red momentarily, and soon returns to normal. I've tried two different modems and they both do the same thing. I have tried multiple cords with the modem. I contacted AT&T and they said they ran a line test and it looked normal. There are 4 computers sharing this connection and the router is a Linksys WRT54G. This pretty much ruins my online gaming experience and is just a pain when browsing.

Any ideas?

I have a D-link DI-524 wireless router that I've used for a few years. I have to get rid of it by tomorrow, so I tried plugging my modem straight in through my PC. I did this before I ever got the router and it worked fine. Now I get the "limited connectivity" message in my tray when I do it and cannot access any web page. When I right click on the connection in my network connections and hit repair it always tries to renew my IP, and then fails.

Is there something else I have to do to be able to run straight from my modem to my PC after getting rid of the router? any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I've recently encountered a problem in which my 'linksys 3' connection keeps disconnecting numerous times per hour. For example, when I log on my laptop, it says I'm connected with an 'Excellent' signal, then 4-5 minutes later, it becomes disconnected, by which a yellow exclamation sign will appear on the connection logo (I use windows vista home premium), but sometimes it stays connected for at least 1 hour before disconnecting again. Every time that happens, I have to switch the wireless switch on and off for it to connect again. Also, sometimes it disconnects again after mere seconds of reconnecting. There is also my sister's laptop which is connected to the router by a LAN cable, I'm not sure if that would affect it, but this is the first time it has happened, and now it's becoming really annoying and frustrating.

My son was recently given a three year old laotop computer. It was originally connected to a DSL connection and I use a Cable connection. It has a built in wireless 802.11g card and a 10/100 interface. I configured it to connect wirelessly to my wireless router. The connection is established and DHCP assigns it a network address. Every 20-30 seconds it drops the connection and imediately reacqires a new connection. I disabled the wireless card and enabled the 10/100 LAN connection. Same thing. The router makes the connection, asigns a valid IP address, drops it, and imediately reastablishes the connection. The TCP/IP stack looks good. The link speed is right. Could it be conflict with some pre existing software? Maybe the old DSL software ot some instant messaging program. I loaded new antivirus software and ran a complete sucessful scan. Any thoughts what it could be?

I am quite new to routers, and they have always seemed quite daunting to fiddle with.

Due to an upgrade on my BT line, i had to get a router instead of my old modem, the router works fine now (BT Voyager 220v ADSL Voice Router), and will connect to DSL and ethernet fine, but my MSN Messenger will no longer connect.

It is strange since other applications such as Internet Explorer, Security applications, etc. can.

I suspect it has something to do with port forwarding, but looking at guides on this and attempting to implement them I find does not solve the problem, although, I could be doing it wrong.

Hi, I have a problem with my Linksys router. I have verizon dsl and on this connection I use wireless router which keep loosing connection every couple of hours. The only solution I found to make it work againg is to power it down and up again. Some days it works fine , others I loose connection every minute. I dont know what is going on. I had the same problem with D-link router so I bought Linksys one hoping that this would solve my problem. But it did not, and my 1 month old router makes me maaaaadddd.
Does anyone know how to fix it??? People in Linksys keep checking my setting - it work for a couple of hour or days but it happens again and again.

A:Linksys Router keep disconnecting

"lose connection" means what? Can you still access the router? If you can get to the router setup page then most likely it is the DSL that has died and not the router. You may have a bad line or some problems at the exchange.

1. Always upate to the latest firmware.
2. Disable unneeded services on the router - get rid of uPnP, DHCP, packet filter. This way there will be more resources left to th real job - routing.

Hey guys, i've got a really strange problem. I've searched for along time to resolve this, but none of the exsisting threads seem to have exactly the same problem as me so let me explain.

Im using a NF7 V2.0 motherboard with an Athlon 3000+ XP. The NF7 V2.0 has an onboard network card which I have the Uni drivers for (nForce2). The problem is at random times it seems to cut out then start up again, with a little bubble in the bottom right corner saying "Local area connection is now connected 10/100m" or something along those lines. So I tried my PCI network card and that has exactly the same problem. It usually disconnects during games, and as im sure you can imagine its extremly frustrating.

I have turned off "Let windows turn this devices off to save power" option but that has no effect.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

A:Enable firewall with windows messenger

I think you just need to enable the port that MSN Messenger uses in your router firewall. I'm not exactly sure right now as to which one that is, but when I have more time I will search for it.

Hi, recently downloaded Yahoo Messenger and the messages I try to send will not show up, I can also not see other people's messages.
I've tried all of the solutions I have found online including playing with the Regedit and typing this in on command prompt.
regsvr32 jscript.dll then press enter
regsvr32 c:\Windows\System32\vbscript.dll press enter
None of this seems to be working so please can someone help me.
Thanks in advance

A:Yahoo messenger not working

I certainly understand the issue. These steps might help you fixing it. This is an issue that is cropping up more and more.

If just a new problem try exiting Yahoo Messenger and then relaunching it. Even try rebooting your computer. If both those fail to solve your problem then try the suggestions below.
The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that:
In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, ?regsvr32 jscript.dll? and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box ?regsvr32 vbscript.dll? and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista/7/8/8.1 temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.
If the above does not fix your problem and if you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. Here is link from Microsoft to update that: you can do an internet search for Windows Script 5.7 and choose the Microsoft link.
This version of Window Script is already included with Vista, so you would not use that link. There is also a Windows Script 5.7 released for Windows 2000 and you can find that here:
The newer Windows versions will have Windows Script 5.8 inbuilt. For more info on the version, please visit this link:

Regarding the closed topic Live remember and not forgets ID / does Windows Messenger password quot vb topic html quot and also in this forum I have a solution that actually works Since your website is one of the first Windows Live Messenger forgets / does not remember ID and password google results for many kinds of searches on this problem I thought it would be good for the community to share it The problem has been discovered by Jonathan Kay who has proposed an executable problem that solves it However like many people I do not like running third-party programs and moreover I wanted to know how it actually solved the problem The answer has been proposed by Adam Johnson but it is not easy to find using Google The problem is originally caused by the bugged Yahoo Toolbar installer which changes the registry key AppData under HKEY CURRENT USER Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Windows Live Messenger forgets / does not remember ID and password User Shell Folders to quot AppData quot It should be set to quot USERPROFILE Application Data quot without the quotes of course instead The problem is then solved as soon as Explorer is restarted the simplest way to do this is to restart the computer but it also works to simply kill and then run explorer from the Windows process manager Of Course Messenger also has to be started Windows Live Messenger forgets / does not remember ID and password again after that so it takes the new environment into account To the admin please include this post in the closed topic or at least link it there because this would probably help many people solve this problem nbsp

btw, I use facebook quite frequently, is there a possibility that the spams were send by facebook??

thx in advance for your help

For a couple of days now i've been trying to get rid of Windows Live Messenger as it doesn't work so that i can re-install it. (OS: Vista)
Couldn't find it in control panel > uninstall/change programs so i just went to the Windows Live folder and tried a Shift + Delete to just get rid of the program completely.
One problem is that it wont let me delete all of the files (relating to the photo gallery and contacts) - saying that i dont have permission even though i'm the admin.
Another problem is that even though (as far as i can see) all of the files relating to the messenger have gone - when i run the installer it says that its already installed so i cant re-install it!
Any help is greatly appreciated

Here we go again in Dummies' Corner!
Every time I try and sign in on Windows Live, I get the message that they can't sign me at the time and the service is 'currently unavailable'. I get an error code of 80070005.
The only thing that I can think of that would have any bearing on this is that I recently failed to act on the fact that my anti-virus had expired and was subjected to a malware attack which I think I have now got on top of after uploading Microsoft Security Essentials.
However, I have been told that a malware attack can leave this legacy. I was also told that running the trial version of ESET NOD32 would sort it. It didn't, despite scanning for a total of 16hrs.!
If no-one has any ideas on here, I think I'm at the stage of totally changing my email address.

A:Cannot log in to Windows Live Messenger ...

Live Messenger is being discontinued

So says

Windows Live Messenger will be retired as Microsoft moves contact lists into Skype?s chat feature as part of its Windows 8 roll out.

Technology giant and Skype parent Microsoft is integrating its chat service, Windows Live Messenger with the VoIP service, according to a Nov. 6 blog post from Skype, a move that signals the essential retirement of the world?s most popular instant messaging service. By updating to Skype, Messenger users can instant message and video call their Messenger friends, wrote Microsoft?s president of the Skype division Tony Bates. Microsoft bought Skype last year for $8.5 billion.

After much searching and trying just about everything i finally fixed the MSN Messenger Error 80072745 login issue by doing the following:
On the netgear router there is a setting to enable IM .... even though i had this set to enable i believe the router data file may have been corrupted. I enabled the following services inbound..... 443, 7001, 9 and 1683 and saved the settings. Then i applied the IM enable setting again. This then allowed me to login to MSN. i then removed the ports in services which disconnected me from MSN then reapplied the IM setting again.... bingo it all works..... I am not sure but i feel there may be a configuration save issue with the netgear router or the configuration can become corrupted for whatever reason.

Hello Everyone .

I've been running some problems with Windows Live Messenger 8.1 about few days already
If I double click on the Messenger shortcut then It won't just open ( Most of the time , but there are exceptions ) , however it appears on the task manager .
If I disable my network connection or unplug the internet cable , then Live Messenger will pop up , but when I unplug / enable the network , msn just freezes and the program seems to not respond .
I think that Msn may bein conflict with Winamp since they sometimes crash together .
I'm running Windows XP 64-Bit .

Thanks ,
Chris .

I have this major issue with my MSN messenger (on my PC) whenever I connect it to a ethernet switch so I could use it (my PC) with my Laptop, so together both have internet connection.. my MSN messenger works fine and it could sign in easily, but when I disconnect my ethernet switch and connect to just my modem, my MSN messenger says it could not connect to the internet or that there's no internet connection where there is! (I forgot which error code but its well known, I've searched before and it said it could be the anti-virus etc but I have no problems with my anti-virus and programs it monitors). Anyone know how to stop this stupid silly error with Live Messenger?

A:Live Messenger works when I connect it to a Ethernet switch?

Can you ping once you use the modem? You might not be authenticating to the WWW properly and Msn is blinded with connectivity by the modem being unable to do so.

Windows Live Messenger - Change Number of Reconnect Attempts + Maximize Security

I have a small issue with the Windows Live Messenger automatic reconnect feature, and was wondering if there is any way to change it.
Thing is, whenever I lose my internet connection for a minute, Messenger obviously disconnects, and attempts to reconnect after a certain amount of time (~1 minute). Usually its first 2 attempts fail at connecting to my account, and then the attempts stop.
I need a way to make Messenger try to reconnect once or twice more, because usually the 4th-5th time I try, Messenger gets it right.

Thank you very much for any help whatsoever.
Greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Live Messenger - Change Number of Reconnect Attempts

as far as i know there's not a way to change this, usually it will keep trying to reconnect with longer intervals in between, but obviously this is not the case here

i expect it would be a set thing in the program's code and not something that you could change easily

Call your own mobile SP and ask them what they are playing at. I suspect that this is "a strategic withdrawel of service facilities" - in other words they don't make any money out of the calls so they have stopped access through MSN. B*st*rds.
