Have you tried unplugging your router for 20 seconds and replugging?
If that doesn't work can you access the M$ website when you use a proxy such as this (http://silentagent.info/)?

Are you on the torrent plan? (http://www.xnet.co.nz/cgi-bin/status.cgi?id=406)

You can try to re register the Messenger, for some reason it might be playing up.

Edited: unless its what speedy posted with that plan - then ignore below.

First make a restore point, Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/ System Restore.

The then try the following:

From the start menu select run and type these 3 registry fixes one at a time, hitting enter after each entry:

regsvr32 Softpub.dll

regsvr32 Mssip32.dll

regsvr32 Initpki.dll

Try Messenger.

Try updating your network card-I saw this on quite a few websites.
Run>type in "devmgmt.msc" (without quotes)>double click network adapters>Select one>right click>update driver. Or if it doesn't work(seems like you can't access M$ services, find the manufacturer of the network card in Device Manager and manually download and install the new driver.

Good Luck:D

Well I was having probs with MSN this morning and with Skype this afternoon. I'm with xnet fusion. Connection kept on dropping off every few mins. I wondered if it was something to do with Dos attacks they've been getting and are still getting I believe.

Just tested mine and yes can't load microsoft.com or msn.com either. And I'm also having issues accessing ITMS and stuff.co.nz as well!

I'm on Xnet Fusion, had the issue with affecting some of their torrent users but it appear to be fixed. Everything appeared fine until about 8+pm when it started playing up.

Have email Xnet help desk about this, guess I'll only ge a reply tomorrow at the earliest.
