Turns out that we never upgraded the firmware and there where issues with MSN that developed since the router was built. Let's use a new post so you can get the new advice. After trying the rest of the solutions that did not work for us, I stumbled across the answer --> Our LINKSYS router.

Please refer to our CNET Forums policies for details. We downloaded and installed the new firmware (Free from the LINKSYS website --> http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/home) and the problem was immediately solved. So, if anyone else is trying to get the Microsoft Update section turned on inside Windows Updates the trick is to simply install another or different Microsoft product that has updates How do I get this machine to switch to Microsoft Update?

I have 2 computers on the same network, one works without this and the other does not. If you do not already have Windows Update integrated with Microsoft Update, you will see the message “Get updates for other Microsoft products” on the Windows Update home page. that was it. I have Office 2013 Standard installed and activated, and from previous installation experience know that I should be able to access numerous updates through this method.

For each one that you find, right-click the file, and then click "Open With." Deselect the "Always use this program to open this program" check box.

So many sites need compatibility mode, and even then it's still sketchy, sometimes buttons don't work, frames are out of place, text gets smushed... it will activate the updates for the other products. To verify that I am able to install updates for Office I manually downloaded and installed one Office 2013 update through the Microsoft download site. To enable checking for other products, click the Find Out More option shown beside this message.
