MSN Messenger Can't connect

Even since I had wireless internet connection, my msn messenger behaves pretty weird.

Everytime I tried to sign in, right before it makes its connection, my internet connection failed, and when my connection goes back on, the messenger is in reconnecting mode, saying reconnecting in 3 seconds or so. And it does connect after 3 secs.

But today, I was chatting with my friend, and suddenly my internet connection dropped from 54Mbps to 2.0Mbps, and everything failed. So I restarted my PC, everything was back to normal but not my messenger. So I guessed I should installed a newer version ( I was using 7.0, now installed 7.5). It behaves the same (drops my internet connection and let it go back on after secs) except that after it says "reconnecting in 0:40 (more reconnecting time), it won't connect at all. I ran the tests from its tool-> connection menu, it says that my hosts file contains some MSN Messenger related stuff, so I clicked "Repair" but nothing seems changed.

Any idea what went wrong?

PS: I have a D-link DI-524 wireless router and a DWL-G122 USB adapter.
