I have the Buffalo WHR-G54S router and since i got it i have problems with it.
I connected an external 16dbi antenna on it. Everything works fine except that msn live messenger and windows messenger cant sign in. First i enabled the upnp support on the routers settings but still having the same problem
I even cant open some web pages like MSN.com or mobile.de - der Automarkt für Gebrauchtwagen und Neufahrzeuge - Finden oder Verkaufen Sie einfach und schnell ihr Auto... it sounds very strange but its true
My ISP said that everything shoud be working and that all ports are open. And since i live in croatia i cant count on my ISP provider and the service.
I really dont get it because it seems that everything i change in the routers settings doesnt have any affect on the problem. I really dont want to flash the firmware on the router because i never did something like that before.
Sometimes i would like to make a warcraft3 server, and even i know the port the game is using, it seems that i cant disable the firewall of the router. .
I tryed everything i know (change settings, apply, reset of router, plug in/out, and even reinstalled windows) but since i dont know much about router/ap-s i hope that someone can help.
Any suggestions would be nice. Thanks to all who are willing to help and sorry for my bad english
First off, I'd disable UPNP unless your using a wireless printer, camera or some other wireless device besides a computer. Then you need to have it on.
It might be that your DNS server is not updated, so when your computer goes to find out...hey where is www.msn.com, your DNS is pointing it in the wrong location. This would kinda explain why some websites work and some don't.
Open a command prompt and type:
The address mine gives for that site is .. 188.8.131.52
if you get the same address, your good. If it's a different address you need to tell your ISP to update their DNS servers, or make sure your using the correct one.

First check whether your computer is comfigured with DNS servers. Just type ipconfig /all to make checking.
Then use nslookup to resolve the domain name. See whether it works.
If no DNS configured or it's not working well, try this openDNS as your DNS server.
Also see any firewall (Windows firewall, antivirus firewall) on computer or router, the msn and other services will need to be allowed to go through.
