I am connected via our Office LAN we are able to access Yahoo site, but when we go to login page it becomes slow and eventually it becomes disconnected. All other sites are working fine and the speed is okay but this yahoo login page is the one that always fails to go through is there are problem somewhere here?

Hi rsa101,

Does this only happen at your office? Although I haven't had trouble getting to the login page, I've been having sluggishness problems with yahoo since just before the inauguration. They might be having trouble themselves.

I think its on their end since this time it worked for me. But for other users in my office it stillis not sorking on their PCs. This is somewhat weird as we have no problem logging in our office. I only experience this at the office since at home my yahoo works perfectly okay.

rsa101,

If the office computers all tried the login at once, then it might be possible to say it is yahoo or not yahoo. That it works for you but not for your colleagues could still be a problem of yahoo. I also wondered about the difference in your provider at work as opposed to at home. Also what firewall you are using at work.

Hi rsa101,

Since this seems to be a yahoo problem, please try the following:

Using a computer where you can login to yahoo, go to the following page, login there and fill out the form.

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/help_f.html

Yahoo's customer service will give you an immediate confirmation of receipt of your request for help and you'll get an answer within a couple of days. Please let me know if they can help you identify this.

Also, I found some information on a similar problem with Linksys Routers, which indicates it could be a settings problem. However, that information is from 2005, so I recommend trying yahoo first. If you want to read about the router problem which is an older problem and should have been resolved in the meantime, it might give you some ideas of what direction to pursue, should Yahoo not be able to resolve the problem themselves, but I do recommend trying to get help from Yahoo first.

Here's the old article on Linksys: http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t373...some-sites.html

I guess it was really a Yahoo problem and isolated one in my case. The thing is now everything is okay already. I followed your advice of informing Yahoo my problem and I haven't had any reply as of yet.

Hi rsa101,

I think yahoo had some glitches recently, which happens sometimes when they make changes to their software. I'm glad things are better and when they respond, just tell them the problem went away.
