Everytime you disconnect from a network you ll have to go into the network settings again to reconnect. Find your wireless connection on the list, select your security, enter password and then hit "test". If all credentials were correct, it will quickly breakdown the connection attempt for you, showing you where the connection succeeded and where it failed to better triangulate the issue. If all connections succeed during the test, simply go back to the main screen and sign on. Hope this helps.
Start your troubleshooting with a clean browser Download 'ccleaner' and use it daily. Run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information. http://www.filehippo.com/download_cclean...
On the sign-in page click Messenger > Connection Preferences - make sure there is nothing untoward in the lower 2 boxes - if incorrect make changes using the drop-box options > OK
Copy this Yahoo secure site URL https://www.yahoo.com/ Open Yahoo Messenger > Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN settings > Uncheck everything then check 'Automatically detect settings' and 'Use a proxy server' > Advanced > Paste the address in the secure box and type 5050 in the port box > OK Sign in. Hope this helps.
1) Yahoo are concentrating their efforts to resolving sign-in issues
with Messenger 10. You may have to upgrade to this version if you
cannot resolve your problems and make use of the troubleshooting
software - even if you want to retro install an older version later. 2)
users who opt for a default browser other than IE may be neglecting to
keep IE up to date unaware that IE plays a crucial part in the running
of Yahoo Messenger. I use Firefox as my default but note the amount of
cleaning in IE when I run ccleaner. 3) Start your trouble shooting with a clean browser Download
'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory
settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be
cleaned following a scan Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ 4) It will be worth making IE your default browser while you troubleshoot 5) Download the latest IE from Microsoft http://www.filehippo.com/download_internet_explorer/ 6) Ensure 'work offline' is unchecked :- > Tools - uncheck Work Offline. 7) Update your support software for IE using the links on this page http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/notices/mstabuguqscripterror.html After
updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer,
Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause
conflicts Start / control panel / programs delete any old versions 8) If your log-in fails, interrogate the troubleshooting log for 'failed items' Two Yahoo servers are used for initial log-ins The log-in server checks your username and password are correct If this has 'failed' check your IE can access a secure website by signing in here https://login.yahoo.com/ No
luck? check IE settings >Tools > Internet options > Connection
tab > LAN > 'Use a proxy server for your LAN' > Advanced -
Under 'Proxy address to use' check the info in 'Secure' and 'Port' are
correct > OK for each window. The connection server helps find
the right location to synchronise with other servers- if this shows
'failed' change your YM settings to connect via a proxy.This can be
done from the menu on the sign in page > Messenger > Preferences
> Connection -adjust settings > Apply > OK If all else fails - try dis-abling your firewall and do a test sign in.
If you are encountering the error code 80072745 when you sign into Messenger try the following:
1. If you are connected to the Internet through a router, remove the connection to the router. Then, directly attach the network or modem cable to the computer. This will help determine whether the issue is related to a firewall setting on the router. Try to sign in to Messenger after you connect to the Internet. If you can connect to Messenger after bypassing your router, the issue may be related to router settings. Try resetting your router (Note: This may revert your settings back to factory default settings and may delete all your custom settings.). Please contact your router manufacturer's Help documentation or customer support channels to determine how to reset your router or enable port 1863 through the router firewall.
2. If you are signing in from a corporate environment, contact the network administrator to determine whether port 1863 is being blocked inside the network. 3. If you have Zone Alarm with IM Security installed on the computer, turn off IM Security for Messenger:
3.a. Right-click the Zone Alarm icon in the notification area, and then open the Control Center. 3.b. Click IM Security or click Security to open the IM Security settings window. 3.c. Click the Main tab or the Status tab. 3.d. Slide the Protection Level slider to Off to turn off IM Security. Note: This procedure will change the IM Security settings for any instant messaging programs that are installed on the computer. 3.e. Sign in to Messenger again to determine whether the issue is resolved.
4. If you are connecting to the Internet using a Wireless Data card through a mobile phone network, please contact your mobile internet provider to verify if you need to additional data plans that enable you to connect to the Messenger service.
Hope that helps!
