    thanks,,,just went and got it, but haven't noticed any difference so far. i expected some lightning fast sign on, but it seemed to take longer than it had before. will have to see if actual webcamming is any better.

    can you also try voip?

    i tryed my voip phon on windows live messenger the current version and its so slow but then i got skype and havent really had anyproblems with speed.

    but i have had problems with file transfer with windows live messenger.
    so the speed needs to improve on all componants.

    windows live messenger jack of all trades master of one:thumbd:

    i know everyone uses it so thats why its mastered instant messenger but the transfer speeds of it seems to get worse every realease.
    lets hope it gets better like they say.
