error 81000306 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi

    i cannot sign into messenger and it reports error 81000306. i realised that i ran a full system scan with Norton, following which i upgraded to Windows Media Player 11. i rolled back on the player update and from since then i have tried all the trouble shooting tips that i could find.

    if i use another passport to log in  -IT WORKS FINE.

    if anyone knows how to fix this problem please help me to do the same

    I had this problem and your symptoms sound pretty much identical to mine. I
    found the procedure below in another group, and it solved the problem for me
    and at least a couple of other people that I know of. Apparently Vista's
    "auto-tuning" networking
    feature doesn't play nice with some routers. Not sure if it is a bug in
    Vista, a bug in Messenger or a bug in the router firmware.

    Try this:
    - Click start
    - Type: cmd
    - Right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications
    - Click Run As Administrator
    - Type the following: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
    - Press enter
    - Restart your computer
