hey, i think theres somthing wrong with the 'default Gateway' on my computer..the 'trouble shoot' thing says that 'my default gateway appears to be offline'..everytime i try to sign into msn messenger 7.5. This is really frustrating, and other sites and webpages wont work either, sites such as hotmail, and it won't let me bid on items on ebay, or go to online checkouts, i dont know if thats got anything to do with the gateway. If anyone who goes on here has any ideas as to whats going on, it'd be great if you could help me out!..cheers!

Although you enable the application through your firewall, you may have to enable the Net passport site in your trusted sites section. So go to your trusted sites section of you firewall and add l That worked for me.

Hello People,

Im having exactly the same problem, and I have tryed all the resolutions stated on microsofts site but nothing seemed to help. When I attempt to access any secure site, it just purely states that the "connection was refused when contacting. . . . ". Also on MSN Messenger it says I have a problem with the same thing.

If any one has sorted this problem out I would really appreciate it if you could share how you done it with us. Thanks In Advance!!:-D

Best Wishes,
