    Get a new client. Microsoft MSN is buggy, slow and bloated. I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

    Some alternatives are:

    Fire
    Proteus

    and what I personally use:

    aMSN

    it may not be visually lush but it has a few extras, like display pics (like windows msn), it never crashes and connects to the network without problem.

    If after setting up the client and it still won't connect, theres probably a network problem which we could probably find pretty easily.

    Do a search this has been covered before.
    Anyway download the latest version of MSN from the M$ website, this solved it for me.
