      1am disconnection on msn messenger with sky broadband users

      Hi there!

      I switched to sky broadband a couple of weeks ago and I've noticed that I ALWAYS get disconnected from msn (or windows live) messenger at 1am.

      A couple of my friends have sky broadband and this problem happens to them as well

      I was just wondering whether any of you guys have the same problem or if any of you know why it happens....

      It's a known problem and only affects a few people. It will be fixed on a future firmware release. And also it changes to 12am when the clocks go back, I have the same problem.

      Yes, on the rare occasions I'm on MSN Messenger at 1am, I have noticed it signs me out automatically, but I can sign back in again straight away.

      The randomness of some Sky Broadband problems is amazing.

      Thanks for the replies, at least I know now that my friends and I aren't the only ones!

      Yeah.... it must be irritating if it happens while sending/receiving files though (luckily that hasn't happened to me....yet)

      Do you know when this new firmware will be released?

      Rumour has it, it is been tested at the moment with the most common issues being fixed.

      afaik, the MSN bug will be fixed on the next firmware after the one being tested now, so some time to go yet I am afraid.

      I was also getting this disconnection at 1 am problem with iChat/AIM on the Apple Mac, but it has stopped happening since I changed the default port from 5190 to 443 (within the iChat software preferences).
