Okay, I'm having some.. odd.. issues, and I can't quite place what It would be. I haven't done anything different than my usual behaivor.

Here goes. Yesterday, my Windows Live Messenger was working, until a required update came out. It says that It failed to update everything. I knew my computer had this problem before, because it would not work with Skype, when I try skype, it says that I am not connected to the server. Pokerstars will connect, I click "Network status", all connections say "Very good" (100%), but after 5 minutes it says it cant connect as well.

Firefox just comes up with the default "Unable to connect"

I can connect to some MMORPG's, such as WOW, but as soon as a new update comes out, I can't update it. Luckily my Internet explorer still works.

Anyway, about the only thing that I can think changed this is my recent move to Korea. Before I got here I had no problems.

Also, I'm connecting through a Wireless network, which I know the ports are set right, because my buddy can use Skype.

Anyway, Any knowledge would be helpful.
