Question about Apple iBook Mac Notebook

1 Answer

AOL connection is being denied.

When I open up safari, I have my AOL welcome screen as my main page.  But as I open it, I can see in the address box that there are two addresses jumping back a forth.  www.aol.com and https://my.screenname.aol.com/ ...with a whole bunch of other stuff after this one.  Then in the blank white screen (that normally turns to the welcome screen when connected) has a message for me, The service you are trying to reach is temporarily unavailable - please try your request again.. *But when I do, same thing keeps happening.
I was once told to clear my past address or cookies or something like that, every so often to prevent this from happening...but I've forgotten how.  Help please :)

I have a Mac- lost my telus homepage-how do i get it back????


Hi Jeanne.
Open Safari browser. In the search bar at the top pre the address of the website you are wanting (telus.com) for example and hit the "return" key on your keyboard.
Once you are on the telus page, navigate to the exact page you would like to open every time you start Safari. Example "My Account".
Then click on the name "Safari" to the top left of your screen, next to the Apple logo.
Select "Preferences". A settings box will appear, make sure you select the "General" tab at the top left of this settings box if it isn't already the main window.
you will then see the name "Homepage:" with a field to the right of it. Under the name "Homepage" though you will see a box that says "Set to Current Page", select that and the field above will populate with the current telus webpage you navigated to earlier.
From then onwards, each time you open Safari, it will present you with the telus page you require.

How could I change the main screen by default when I use another screen with the laptop


I am guessing that you are referring to your "Home Page"
If so, click on Safari, then Preferences, then General.
You can then type in a specific address or click to set it to the page you are on at the time. It will then make that your home page which will open each time you open Safari. I hope that was what you were asking.

How do I uninstall ASK from my MAC?


It depends on the browser, but assuming Safari since this is a Mac:

Click on Safari in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen. When the drop-down menu appears, choose Preferences.
Select General from the Preferences menu, which is now overlaying your browser window. Once General is selected, you will notice a section labeled Home Page in the main window of the Preferences dialog.
Directly to the right of the "Home Page" label is an edit field containing your current home page URL.
To modify this address, simply erase the contents of the edit field and replace it with the desired web address.
Directly below this edit field you will see a button labeled Set to Current Page. Clicking this button will change your home page setting to whatever page you are currently viewing within the Safari browser.
Once you have completed your changes, close the Safari Preferences dialog by clicking the red circle/x located in the top left hand corner of the box.

Was just assigned a temp password by AOL and need to change it.


AOL is a massive American internet service and multimedia company.

One of the main services that AOL provides for its users is access to a user-friendly email server. This server can be used to send and receive emails to other accounts around the world.

However, just like your keys, your wallet and the remote, passwords to email addresses can easily be lost.

When this happens, you can go onto the Internet service and retrieve your lost AOL password without having the change it.

Go to aol.com.

Find the login box on the main page.

Click on the "forgot password" link, which is underneath the login box.

Type in the user information that you do know. This will be your current email address as well as your name as it appears on the AOL billing information.

Type in the last four digits of your billing credit card for further verification.

Click on the "next" button at the bottom of the screen.

Enter an alternative email address where you can retrieve your password.

Press "submit." Retrieve your AOL password from the alternate email address you entered.

You don't use the AOLdesktop app.
To use AOL as your home page in Safari, use the following URL address

Once there, log on to your account and then in the Safari Preferences General Tab, click on "set to current page" in the home page option.

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!
