      Keep Getting a MS Passport log on thing popping up

      Hi guys, I just got sky bb on tuesday and things are working ok other than a few disconnections mostly when Im using MSN Live messenger but my main problem is that every now and then when I visit a site I get requested to enter my username and password from a MS Passport log on thing. Its the same thing you get when trying to access router configuration through http://192.168.0.1/ where you have to enter the username and password. Its starting to get annoying because it sometimes disconnects my internet. Thanks.

      If it is the router constantly asking for the log in details, phone Sky and tell them. I seem to remember a Sky bod on the forum saying this was a bug in some routers and they had to be replaced.

      If it is the MS Passport which is asking you to log in when you visit a site where it is used, you probably need to relax the restrictions on cookies on your browser.

      Have you checked all your settings in MSN incase you have missed something as I never get anything like this.
