    I've been trying for the last 2 hours to log into MSN and I can't. I though it was my internet connection but it isn't. I've trying logging in on

    Desktop
    MacBook #1 (In both Windows 7 and Mac OS X)
    MacBook #2
    iPhone (using Beejive IM on both Wi-Fi and 3G)
    Xbox 360
    MSN Web Messenger
    Meebo

    None of those can log in. Since I was unable to loging using my iPhone on the cellular network, it leads me to believe that it isn't my home internet. Any ideas?

    Cool another Torontonian [​IMG]. Well, only WLM for Windows gives me an error message. It gives me 81000306. Beejive IM for iPhone gives me a timeout. Nothing else gives me an error, just tells me that I cant log in.
    I looked into the number but none of it seems to help. I finding that people have had to do registry edits but since I can't log in on anything, even an Xbox 360 tells me it isn't an error on my side but more likely on Microsoft's side of things.

    BTW, I still can get into hotmail and Xbox LIVE

    hm.. that's odd. ok firstly, reinstall wlm, see if that helps.

    if not, reset your router. perhaps something is blocking the port, as suggested above.

    The server hosting your account has probably crashed.

    Nothing serious, usually resolves in max 12 hours as they bring a replacement server online.
