Re: isp refusal of thunderbird

Do you mean you're using Thunderbird as your mail client?

There are usually only two things wrong when this happens:

1) You typed in the name of the servers incorrectly (i.e. or something). There should be two settings. One for inbound and one for outbound.

2) Your ID and/or password are incorrect. If they have a web client, try your ID/Password there.

The correct settings can be found here:

If all else fails, go to this address:

and contact either by phone or email.

I have a Mac Pro. I cannot seen to get Safari to open so I can browse the net?

If Safari refuses to launch, you may want to download a different browser, such as Firefox or Chrome. Once you successfully connect to the Internet using one of these browsers, you may find that you no longer need to use Safari.

My old outdated emac wont connect to internet

A lot of people think its the computer when they can't connect to the internet. In reality it's most likely your Internet Service Provider (ISP)
Check the lights on the front of the Cable modem or DSL modem. The "received" light is the one you need to worry about, if it blinking it's receiving data.
If you are not seeing any blinking light you will need to call your ISP for troubleshooting.
A lot of times they do maintenance and have disconnect everyone in the area.

I can pretty much guarantee that this is an issue with your DNS servers.

Open System Preferences > Netowork > Show > Airport > TCP/IP.

Use the Open DNS Project's servers instead of your ISPs: and

Good luck!

You can try using a different web browser like Firefox or Thunderbird, both of which come with OS 10.6. Just copy & paste the URL into Firefox or Thunderbird to get to the same page.

DSL status LED is not on. After an ISP problem the DSL status LED is not on. ISP told us to power off the router for ten minutes. After re-powering the router DSL status LED is not on.

Two problems,
1 - The power adaptor of the DSL Router is not working,
2 - the Telephone cable is not connected properly
3 - If it's a cable modem then the cable is not connected properly
4 - Check with you service provider if he's made changes in the exchange and if you need a new DSL router.
Your DSL service provider should be able to solve this issue.

On wikipedia, it says its a fraud site... Might be the internet browser's Anti-Phishing websites features. Also, if you are in Qatar, Qtel (ISP) banned from the internet there. Go on Wikipedia for more information

Internet provider browser

Some providers make you use IE to do the initial setup. I am guessing you are running OS9 so it could be IE 5.2 for the mac. Did you get a valid ip? Can you tell me who your isp is and I can look up what you need.
