Summary: Cannot Connect socket/writing errors

Initial Comment:
for the last few months I have not been able to use GAIM. I figured I'd look 
into it finally.  I am using the windows version.  I have installed 2 different 
versions as of today, I don't remember what version I had installed when this 
all started happening. 1.50 and now I have the latest beta6 installed. A couple 
months ago, I couldn't get MSN to connect at all on this computer.  I had the 
same version installed on my laptop at work and it worked fine. Then after 
about a month AIM stopped working on here as well. Yet it still works fine at 
work. I did a 10min browse of the old posts and I didn't see anything that 

I get "Connection error from Notification server: Writing error" for MSN, and I 
get "Lost connection with server: Windows socket error #10107".  Now I did 
notice there was a post about the #10107 socket error, and someone suggested 
that it was his firewall of some sorts.  I have all my computer firewalls 
turned off, but I have yet to mess with my router. I wouldn't think that port 
forwading would need to be set up for this client to work? I also just 
remembered that this has been happening for months, and I just got the router.  
Also, when I try connecting with my yahoo account, it just hangs half way on 
the connection meter and never errors out, just never connects. I use MSN 
messenger Version 8.0 Build 8.0.0812.00 and I like the old school version of 
AIM 2.8.3111

Windows XP v '02 w/ service pack 2
The only Firewall I ever use is the AMerican Family Association's 
http://bsafehome.com/?13850 . 
Windows Firewall has been off for quite a while.
