I hope this is the right place for my topic... :)

Is anyone having the same problem: I cannot speak with my friends abroad via MSN Messenger (7.5) using Jetstream 2Mb broadband inernet connection

If I invite them or they invite me for audio conversation there comes an error message saying problems with my network...(??)

The video is working fine and we can speak also using Skype, but Messenger sux in audio.. why?

Any advice welcome!

do you use ADSL Router? is it UPnP friendly?

what could be causing the problem is the router does not know what to do with the packet and doesn't know how to route it. UPnP can ease this problem and automatically set up the route when required and terminate it when it's not required.

Check or use the MSN Messenger troubleshoot and check with your router and see what ports need to be opened etc.


However, in all saying, this sympton should not be happening as 7.5 has been touted to support better voice and better UPnP request... so check your router.

I am using a Nokia M1122 ADSL modem/router.
Anybody can give me clear instructions what to check? (I am not an expert... yet)

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.

oh m1122 is such an old router and it's not really supporting UPnP.. best way is check with MSN Messenger Connection Troubleshooter and follow what it suggests on how to open the port...

or if you want, you probably be looking at Dynalink or anyone that support UPnP. makes your life so much easier when it comes to new internet programs that need to be routed behind NATs.

just be aware that, not all adsl router have UPnP. check with dynalink site and see if there's any update to the firmware... generally, any ADSL router that released 1.5 years ago are UPnP compatible.
