    Hello, i'm using the wireless internet at my schools library and i cannot sign into msn messenger or yahoo messenger, or use download tools like azures. does anyone know why that is? and is there anyway of getting around it...

    Can you use those apps on different internet networks (at home)? Can you browse with Safari? Does your network require a specific proxy set? If so, you might need to ask your administrator for a PAC file that'll get you these settings. :)

    Ahh, okay. This is most likely a port block from your network administrator. Maybe ask the head of IT to confirm if that's the problem. :)
