There may be many reasons. First check if your firewall is dropping some MSN connections. Look into /var/log/messages and browse DENY lines. If it's dropping too much you need to reconfigure your firewall (unblock ports).

Find your firewall script (usually /etc/rc.firewall) and send it there. You need to modify it but it's hard to say how not knowing how is it written.
