The Symptoms You Get
When you try and sign in to your Windows Live Messenger account you get error 80048823
The Cause of Error 80048823 Code
A guess, you are typing in the wrong password. Possibly the wrong email address.
1) The password you are trying is wrong. Could the CAPS LOCK be on? Here is the Microsoft site where you can change your password. Refer to your registration documentation. Do you have a confirmation email with your email address and password?
2) Have you just changed or fiddled with your firewall? Could that be blocking your Windows Live Messenger connection?
3) I never like this solution, but sometimes it does the trick: Delete internet temporary files and cookies. Internet Explorer: Tools (menu), Internet Options.

Guy Recommends: The Free IP Address Tracker (IPAT)
Calculating IP Address ranges is a black art, which many network managers solve by creating custom Excel spreadsheets. IPAT cracks this problem of allocating IP addresses in networks in two ways:
For Mr Organized there is a nifty subnet calculator, you enter the network address and the subnet mask, then IPAT works out the usable addresses and their ranges. For Mr Lazy IPAT discovers and then displays the IP addresses of existing computers.
