Chances are you are using OS X 10.4.11 or lower, when you connect with that version of the OS, the default connection to a wireless network is WEP, but if the network requires WPA or something else you have to manually select it, then put the password in.

I couldn't log in to yahoo messenger

Good Day Downtown!

There are different possibility while you can not log in to Yahoo Messenger right now.

Better check if your internet connection is stable. You can also disable the Firewall setting on your system, most of the time Firewall blocks the connection of Yahoo Messenger especially when connection is wireless.

Also, make sure you type the user id and password correctly. check for spelling and capital letters when you type it.

If you can upgrade the Internet Explorer in your system, that would help in Yahoo connection issues. Cause Yahoo products rely its connection from Windows Internet Explorer.

Please go to http://icantsignintoyahoomessenger........
and take some time to read it cause this will helps in your connection issues.

Good Luck Downtown!
Hope you will comeback later after you have log in successfully with Yahoo Messenger.

I have a nrtwork konektion all I nead is to fine the password and use the internet line

Are you using a wireless router to connect to the internet?

If you have forgotten what your connection to router's password is, I suggest to reset the router by locating the reset hole. Just push it with an unfolded paper clip for about 10 seconds and it will be back to default settings which is no password.

Hope this helps.

My Netgear adsl router is not getting connected to Internet in pppOe mode ..

POPE configuration is logs into your ADSL system and connects to your ISP provider server to link , so one of the reason why it dosent is due to either password and username not correct. Log unto IP address of your Router and go to WAN configuration , Check your username and password and reset to the initial password and username your ISP provider gave you , when you signed up with them. Then apply changes , off your router for 1 min and then power it , then wait for the ADSL light on the router to be stable , connect to the IP address of your router again and "Volla" , it should be fine , if not , contact your ISP provider....

I cant log on to the internet on my other computer it tells me minimal or no connection

Please ensure that your security settings are correct. Also make sure you have entered the correct password in your security enabled network (sounds like you are using a wireless connection). If you are behind a firewall or proxy server ensure that the internet settings are correct. If your are using IE go to tools - internet options- connections- LAN settings to setup your proxy if you are using Firefox go to tools - options - advanced - networks - settings tab to configure your proxy. The steps are almost identical for all browsers.
