Yahoo messenger : unable to login - Web pages open very slow

Most of the times when you try to login to your yahoo messenger you get errors and you are unable to login through your ID. Kindly remember this solution is not for those who have forgotten their password. This is a yahoo servers problem which you can cunningly bypass and you can get your messenger connected.
This was the question asked by an asker
hi,i m getting problem while i m signing in in messenger.its showing message like please re-enter id n password.when i am using that pass word in my yahoo mail it works n also it works in other id but only my id its showing this error.please give me a solution as i am using yahoo messenger daily. thanks
Here goes the solution
Yahoo messenger presently is undergoing few changes at the server end. In order to login efficiently I use to run two ping commands. To do so, press on start button click on run button type cmd in the box and hit ok button. In the black window now type exactly the same in the bracket remember brackets are not included in the command (ping www.yahoo.com -t) don't forget to put space after .com before typing -t. -t is hyphen t. repeat this message once more and you will be able to login through messenger. Happy chatting
Sorry, I forgot to mention that after the command starts you have to minimize it and login to your messenger. If you are in a chat room. This will increase your speed so that your webcam will be faster and even the voice will be clear. If you wish to further know anything about any of the Chat related or any other technical issues you are most welcome to use fixya. Happy chatting
This is a tiny trick which I rarely tell people. In the organisation where I work thats totally on DSL modem and cat 5 copper cables even they use utp cables when going for more than 150 meters. Local sites open up very easily as the coppers are good but WAN sites from bangalore or delhi would take hours to open. I suffered for around one month then I got this trick. Simply ping the IP of the site to which you wan't to work faster way for you. -t in ping stands for ping continuously non stop till manually stopped. In case you don't know the IP you can simply put the web address like ping www.fixya.com -t and you will see the difference in speed on the links of that site. So enjoy and thanks for rating.
This can also be used in case few sites open very slow on your computer. In order to increase the speed of web page opening time you can always use this.

i cant open my yahoo messenger

Please explain what is the issue exactly. Is it "You can't login with your ID and Password" or "The Messenger is not working". If you are unable to login with your ID and Password, try login with http://webmessenger.yahoo.com
If you are unable to login with it also just reset your password and login. If you can login with web panel, check if there is any prosy set inside messenger network preferences. Remove the proxy and try again. If no proxy found. Uninstall and restart the PC and re-install the latest yahoo messenger.
That's all.

Thanks for joining us. Have a nice day.

cant login in to ym

You have not given the error which you are getting. Have you tried to login with diff id and the id which you can't login can be logged through other PC. If this is the case then your IP is banned by yahoo. You are advised to surf google on how to unban your IP from yahoo messenger. In case you need further assistance kindly revert back to us.
