MSN Installation

I have installed MSN Messenger but are having problems. When I troubleshooted the problem it said that my firewall may be blocking me from using MSN. I got an error message 80048820.

It also says i need to have the name of the proxy server.

What do i do now?

you probably didnt set up your gateway correctly. the easiest way to fix this , due to the way msn messenger works, is to open IE go to connections and set a proxy for everything to the ip of your router. then try the msn install again--hopefully should work

Buzzons is correct, however I find that with my settings it is
Internet explorer ->Tools->options->connections->LAN settings-> then I "check" automatically detect settings, because it works for me. (If that fails then put in the correct the proxy server settyings)
I don't usually have to reinstall either, (though as Buzzons suggests it may be a good idea).
