      MSN messenger file transfer causes router to reboot!

      Hi guys,

      MSN Windows Live Messenger works fine for instant messaging through my Sky router on Sky BB, but as soon as someone sends me a file, and I accept it, the router reboots itself! Happens every time.

      UPnP is switched on in both the Sky router and in Windows XP. MTU on Sky router is the default of 1500. I have yet to try my old router on the Sky BB line.

      Is there a simple fix to this anyone please? Thanks.

      Wow! I'm always delighted when some new quirk of this router turns up and I confess that this one is a new one on me. I don't use MSN, so I'm in guessland here, but it is probably a bugette in the uPNP implementation (it is known to have one or two issues).

      I'd probably switch off uPNP and replace them with static firewall rules instead. Worth a try anyway.
