OK guys, Ive tried finding a solution for a few days, but can't find anything. MSN does not work in my user account, but it works in the other accounts on my computer. The problem says I cant sign in at this time because the service is temporarily unavailable (even though msn works in other accounts). I click troubleshoot, and it tells me my gateway appears to be offline.
I looked this up on other sites, and people who say they have this problem said the error code was 80048820, but mine is 80048869.
Anyone know whats wrong?

OK now it works. For those who have the same problem:
While it was not working, I opened IE to make sure that was working, and it was. I opened it again, because I wanted to use a site that isnt supported by Firefox, and it asked if I wanted to stay offline or connect. I do not know why it didnt ask this the first time, but it was set to "work offline." I clicked connect and then tried MSN and it worked.

Thanks for posting the solution. Other members may have a similar problem, and your post will help them.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
