Multiple Convo Issues ("Temporary Network Problems" Message)

Discussion in 'Windows Live Messenger' started by Foxfire Inferno, Apr 6, 2008.

  1. This has been something that's been reoccuring since MSN 7.5.
    At first it was just on the laptop back in the 7.5 era in which after being
    idle for ujst 1-2 minutes in a multiple person convo, I'd get this message:
    "You are having temporary network problems and are no longer in this
    conversation," and then I'd have to ask to get reinvited and it would always
    happen with 1-2minutes of idleness in the chat. My desktop computer has NEVER
    had this issue before, even during 7.5. Only the laptop had it until now.

    Fastforward to the older version of Live Messenger (before the new version
    with the Vista-look.) After deciding to update to the new Vista-looking
    version of Live Messenger and going into a multi-convo chat, Messenger now
    has that issue.
    With just 1-2 minutes of idleness in the convo: "You are having temporary
    network problems and are no longer in this conversation."

  2. Greetings,

    This is by design. If the conversation is idle for 5 minutes, it is ended.

    You're not the first to ever complain about this - but this is done server side and there
    isn't much you can do about it.

    One thing you can do is set the people you often communicate with into a group, and within
    the Send an instant message dialog (the one that appears when you right-click on the
    Messenger icon in the notification area and choose the Send an instant message option), you
    can select that group. Saves a few seconds...
