I believe I know exactly what has happened here.
HughesNet/DirecWay/DirecPC uses a proxy server to speed up their service. If you later switch services to cable or DSL and neglect to remove the proxy, you will get no activity at all.
Here's how to remove the proxy:
Under the Apple menu, choose System Preferences. Choose Network. Choose Ethernet. Choose Proxies. (Sorry, I don't have 10.4 in front of me -- I'm trying to do this from memory and 10.5 is different -- so if one of these choices isn't immediately obvious, look around a little.) Choose Web Proxy. I am assuming you will see something entered in this slot. Erase it and uncheck the checkbox (if there is one). Hit OK, Accept, and all the other buttons necessary to get out of the Network subpanel. Now your browser should start working again.

It wont let me sign up. It just loads and caput! doesnt do a thing. Just kind of loads nothing. Does nothing makes me mad.please help me thankyou


First, try to access the web site in a different computer that is connected to a different network. There are times that the site itself has the problem and not the computer.

If you can access the site in a different computer, then the problem has something to do with the internet browser that you are using. Try to use different internet browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera). OR, you may optimize your browser. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer:

1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
7. Select "Done".
8. Access your email.

Thank you and good luck!
