At the moment I can't sign in to MSN Messenger from home via Adium or the official MS client. I get "unable to connect" or "you are not connected to the internet errors" from them respectively. Turns out I can't ping either "messenger.hotmail.com" or "login.live.com". Doing a traceroute, both fail at the router below: ge-1-0-0-0.bay-64c-1a.ntwk.msn.net (126.96.36.199) Doing a search on here, I found an old topic, here, but it doesn't help much. Just wondering if anyone knows where to go from here? Thanks, Mike.
