When I get Hotmail doing this it is because of the MTU setting on the
router.

either change the MTU settings on the router if posible or on your
operating system

navigate to following hive

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\[AdapterID]

add new key as follows

Value Name: MTU
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
some values to play with

1492 - PPPoE Broadband Connections
1500 - Ethernet, DSL and Cable Broadband Connections

enusre the value entered is in hex
