Need to login every time on bt home page and seems slow

BT's pages are slow there is nothing you can do about that I am afraid. As for logging in each time...

BT often have problems with their site so this is not too much of a surprise. However, it could be the security level of your browser is set too high for BT's system which prevents theri cookies from being loaded on to you system. There is a trade off here between being safe on the Internet or having the system automatically log you on. I would go for the safety myself.

But in Internet Explorer to reduce your security and thereby allow cookies on to your system which are less than polite - such as BT's - do the following

1) Go to Tools Menu
2) Go to Internet Options
3) Go to Security Tab
4) Reduce the setting one place and see how that goes.

But as said, having worked for BT Broadband Business Technical Support I know the many problems BT have with their systems and site... so do not be surprised if this does not work - it could simply be that they have altered their cookies recently which is causing the problem,

While in Internet Options - clear your cache and cookies that may also solve the problem by forcing the browser to reload the cookies if they have been modified.

If this helped you then please help me and vote.... thank you

I am unable to connect to Yahoo mail. The Internet cannot display this page. Is something wrong with my computer ot the Internet connection?

Are you able to browse other websites other than yahoo? If yes, then there is no problem with your internet connection. If going to gives you a "page cannot be displayed" then there must be a route problem from your computer to yahoo's servers.

To test this, open a command prompt (Start>All Programs>Accesories).
Then type: ping

It should give you something like:

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=215ms TTL=55
Reply from bytes=32 time=215ms TTL=54

If you got that, you just need to clear your cache and cookies. Also try to flush you DNS. From the command prompt, type:

ipconfig /flushdns

It should flush your DNS successfully. Then try opening a new command prompt and visit the site again.

However if your ping to gives a "Request timed out" then there is a routing error and just have to report this to your service provider.

Please dont hesitate to ask me for further assistance if the above suggested solutions did not work. Thank you.

Yahoo webpage cannot display

You are having connectivity problems. Are you sure you have internet connection?

Try to open a command prompt and try to ping websites type:




If they give you a 'request timed out' result, then you have no internet connection.
Check for network cables that should be properly plugged.

Still Having Trouble with Wireless Network

Hi ther Jeff!

Let's check the IP address of the laptop. You said that it is connected to the wireless network "linksys". Go back to Control Panel>Network connections. Right click on wireless network connection then click Status. Then, click on Support tab and tell me the IP address you have in there. Click details to get the DNS server addresses.

Let me know these information. You are right, there could be proxy servers enabled in the browser that's preventing you to open a website. What version of IE are you using?

On your IE browser, click TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>CONNECTIONS. From Connections tab, click on LAN Settings. Make sure that there is nothing enabled or check on that window. Then click ok.

Go to Security tab. Then click Custom Level. Look for the option "Reset Custom Settings to" which you will find somewhere at the bottom of the page. Set the custom settings to medium-low. If there is no option for medium-low, then select the lowest option. Click ok all the way out and try launching IE again.

Do a ping also to a certain website and tell me if you'll be able to get responses from that site. Open up command prompt. START>RUN>CMD. Then on the cursor, type ping then press enter. Take note of the ping statistics.

If you have Internet Security firewall enabled in the laptop, turn it off. It can cause a conflict with your router's built in firewall.

Please update me about this incident.

Some web pages won't open/display

Dear Friend,

Simply change the MTU value under WAN configuration. It will work fine. Change MTR value to 1452 or 1500. Check it will work.

Can't install

If you can ping its IP, you have that part correct.
What you may be having is a firewall issue.
If your firewall protection is not allowing an exception for that IP address, you can ping the machine, yet the data being sent will be blocked.
I have seen this several times in setting up printers, you have to go into your firewall and set up an exception for the IP address on your firewall.
I suspect that is the issue. Not uncommon.

Display is extremely large

This sounds like your resolution is set too low, right click on your desktop and select properties Choose the settings tab from the window that appears, then you should be able to see a slider that tells you your screen resolution. This is most likely set to 640 x 480, the setting you want should be in the region of 1024 x 768 If you are unable to change this setting, you need to check that your display adapter drivers are installed properly in "Device Manager"
