I am living in Japan, and was using the voice chat for MS Messenger to talk with friends / family back home all the time, since it is free for PC to PC. Then I bought my new computer, and now I can't seem to get it working anymore! Anyone have any ideas on why I can't get it working? I have gone into the audio setup wizard within messenger, and I can hear sounds, and my mic is working according to the wizard. But when I go to connect to a friend, it says that they cannot connect to my computer. Could it be my modem? I am on DSL. I have no idea what type of network the connection uses, nor can I find out as all the documentation is in Japanese.... any easy ways to tell if it is my internet connection that is the problem? Nat protocol etc. I have everything I need, mic, speakers etc. The sound card is a built in one, but that shouldn't be the problem, I don't think. The MB is the Asus A7V600. I am able to connect to things like TeamSpeak for gaming, no problem at all...... Help!
