hey everyone. i appreciate all the help in the numerous threads i posted before with questions but again i need help. :( anyway heres the problem: whenever i do the file transfer through MSN messenger, my internet always disconnects for a certain period of time - usually from 10 minutes to 1 hour. i changed ISP service (just today) and the same thing is happening so i think its my router? i hav a DSL-504. ive been to portforward and followed the instructions but it doesnt help at all. any help would be appreciated - this is really bugging me
I got this help from our friend, Rookie, about one of my own problems.
Place the router downstairs, or if that's not possible, on the floor, and so that it goes through the least amount of walls/doors etc possible.
Perhaps MSN is causing your firewall to put up a red flag, and thereby dissabling your connection for a period of time.
