    Something on MSN side is happening. Me and a friend cannot connect to MSN without being on MSN Messenger for Mac. So sign here if you cant connect.

    I know a way to fix this.. Give me two secs to get my facts right.

    EDIT:

    Ok, this is what I did to make MSN work on Adium:

    1. Go onto your routers local configuration webpage by typing in your router's ip address into safari.
    2. Browse through the pages looking for your "Primary DNS" and your "Secondary DNS"
    3. Make a note of these ip addresses
    5. Open up System Preferences and click on the Network section
    6. On the left, select your method of connecting to the internet (I use Airport)
    7. On the bottom right of the window, select advanced
    8. Click on the 'DNS' tab
    9. Under DNS Servers, click the plus button and type in both your DNS addresses from your router's page.
    10. Press OK and you are laughing
    11. Realise that there is no step 4
