    my msn seems to go through periods in three stages

    1. perfectly fine
    2. dropping out and reconnecting all the time
    3. i get half or less of my messages which gets annoying

    i think its because im behind a non UPnP enabled or supporting router, though switching off the UPnP service in windows, which is actually recommended by the FBI seems to have helped a little
