    Takes forever to sign in

    Recently my internet had been messing up, but I managed to fix it by turning it off and on at the wall. Happened again, then did it again, and it's finally working properly. But now it seems it takes forever to sign into Messenger (the green and blue bodies spin along with the text Signing in... forever) and I can't even cancel the during sign in. So what do I do now? Thanks.

    Hello are you direct line or wireless. My did something like that a couple of weeks ago. So try this.

    Click on your internet and wait for it to come on.
    Click on tools
    click on internet options
    clcik advanced
    then click reset

    close your IP screen and restart, then come back and let me know if your internet is back to normal speed.

    If the above does not work try a ping command to test


    Go to search type cmd, in cmd type yahoo.com
    in the black window that appears, type in
    ping yahoo.com /t
    LOL or is it msn.com now. I dont really use these things and may not be up to date.
    and press enter. (press ctrl + c to stop the test)

    If the requests did not time out your internet conncection is good.

    If you get some success and some failure you have a bad connection.

    if you get 100% replies, you have a firewall or virus blocking your connection. if you get timeouts only, you're not connected.

    lastly, pay attention to the time, anything over 500ms means you have a poor internet connection, dial up answers pings in about 100ms.

    If the results turn out poorly. Take a general ping test to see if it is all your connections or only msn or yahoo (try both)

    Well I never use Yahoo or any of it's tools, like Mail, Messenger whatever they have. Does that mean I still have to put yahoo.com in cmd?

    You just said messenger. Use the web address of the messenger that you use.
