I have a strange problem I'm trying to resolve for a friend.  He has an account at MontagueCompany.com where his login ID is his email address.   We have both tried many times to get a login accepted but cannot log in.  We get a message "invalid user ID or password".   We have cleared cache, removed cookies, deleted saved passwords, rebooted, etc.   I've tried this both on his PC using Firefox AND Edge (the new IE). 


Even though the website feedback after a password change says "successful", none of the new passwords work either on his PC or mine.


Montague claims they can log in just fine.  The website is accessible, responsive, etc., just doesn't accept the password.


Is there anything else to check?

As it's not a browser issue on his PC (as you've tried different browsers), then it has to be further down the networking "layers" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_model )

In short, it may be Windows settings, it may be hardware in the system, it may be the cables/wireless connection to the router, it may be from the router to the modem, etc, etc, etc.

As Montague claims that it's accessible, it's gotta be somewhere between you and the internet.


So, my suggestion is to try logging in from another computer.

If that's successful, then it's most likely an issue with the computer (which is what we see most often at work).

As such, I'd suggest posting over in the Networking forums for some more expert advice (I'm not real good w/fixing networking problems):    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/21/networking/

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

It may be password length or complexity.  I use LastPass and specify that my passwords should be 25 characters.  I've run into websites that will take my password, but I can't log in because they truncate my password to their length, but don't do the same when I enter a password.


So, in human terms, I enter a 25 character password, they store a 16 character password (without letting me know that is what they are doing), when I try to log in with my 25 character password it doesn't match the 16 character password they have stored.
