Can't connect with Live Messenger

I don't know if it's the 7's failure, or the Messenger's, but I can't connect with the Live Messenger. Everything else works on the Internet, I get this result from the

But I get the 81000306 error code from the Live Messenger since I installed the Windows 7 Beta 1 (build 7000).

I did everything I could, the Windows built-in firewall allows the Messenger, and I don't use anything else.

Some routers (some netgear) intermittently allow connections for Windows live messenger through Vista and Windows 7.

This can be fixed by the following:

1. Start
2. Type CMD
3. Run as Admin
4. type: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
5. Press Enter, When OK comes up close CMD.

6. Live Messenger now connects and works property. (A Restart may be required)
