Good Day Jhgjr2!

You should try to sign in on Yahoo Mail using a different internet browser.

From my experience, I am using Internet explorer as my internet browser, there are times it will not let me sign in at Yahoo Mail even though my user id and password was type correctly.

I usually open Mozilla Firefox and try to sign in there whenever Internet Explorer will have problems signing me in to Yahoo.

It is also recommended to clear the caches, remove cookies and delete everything on your browsing history. You can do this on the TOOLS menu of your Internet browser.

If despite changing internet browser and you still you can not sign in, maybe it is time for you to
Go to : https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot?stage=fe100&src=ym&intl=us&done=http://mail.yahoo.com&partner=
Follow the on screen procedure, be ready with your user id and secret answers to your secret questions. It will verify your identity, at the end it will reset your password
and gain access to your account.

Let me know if I can help you further. Just leave a comment.
Thanks

Hi smb343646205,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the Operating System you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

Anyways, try to reset the Internet Explorer Settings to resolve the problem.

  1. Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
  2. If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cpl If you use Windows Vista, click Start. Type the following command in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cpl The Internet Options dialog box appears. Click the Advanced tab. Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again. When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box. Start Internet Explorer again. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature restores the following items to their default settings:
    1. Home pages
    2. Search scopes
    3. Browsing history
    4. Form data
    5. Passwords
    6. Appearance settings

Yahoo wants me to sign in every time i try to access my mail; how do i get this crazyness to stop?


You can have your computer remember your user name and password whenever you try to log in. You just need to do the following;
1. go to Browsing History under Internet Options
2. delete Cookies, Cache, Temporary Internet files and Password.
3. open IE or any browser log in using your user name and password
4. then there would either be a pop-up or a notification found on top or at the bottom of the screen asking if you'll remember the user name / password.
5. try to log out and close the browser and then open a fresh browser and try to log in and type the user name and password
6. select or put a check mark under the pop-up remember password

Cannot complete setup


Did you set new admin password in your setup? If not, just type user: admin and 'blank' password (do not fill the password. If yes, and you can't log in using your new admin password, try to reset your router with push reset button (small black button in the back side of router). Follow the reset procedure that found in the manual.

Confuguration Issue


You seem to be following the correct procedure, so the only thing left to do is re-set the router. My best guess is that the router password was inadvertently changed at some point. Reset to default settings: The following reset procedure will completely restore the default settings on the router including your password. Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit. Step 2 With the router powered on, press and hold the Reset button. Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds. Step 4 Release the Reset button. Step 5 The device is now at factory defaults. The default username is admin and leave the password blank. You'll need to follow all the steps you performed initially to re-connect to your ISP.
