Howdy sreblov-ga,

Please try the following and see if it works.

- Log on to your router
- Go to the "Internet Firewall" menu
- Go to the "WAN & LAN Filter" section
- Enable the "WAN & LAN Filter"

To the right of "Well-Known Applications" see if MSN Messenger is in the list
and select it if it is there.  If it is not there, then try the following.

- Enter the IP number(s) of the machine(s) to be blocked.  You can use
a range, such as 198.162.12.*
- Enter 1863 for the "Port Range"
- Enter 64.4.13.* for the "Destination IP"
- Enter 1863 for the "Port Range"
- Leave or set "Protocol" at "TCP"

Keep in mind there is a web based MSN Messenger area as well, and that might
be better handled in the "URL Filter" area.

Please report back here on how the above works, please.  Thanks!

Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher
