I'm a user of QWest with MSN, and there's no blocked ports. However, I
would recomend that you select your DSL Modem/Router carefully. The one
that QWest Provides, (Actiontec version), has had known problems with
getting ports open. Even now, I still have trouble getting stuff up and
going. If I had the money to, I'd up to 5Mbps/896, but alas, I don't
make bocu dollar signs like some here do. :P
