Yahoo.com will not load when connected to my home internet provider, but it will when I'm connected to another provider.

We have two laptops, two cell phones and one tablet - we can't access Yahoo.com from any of these devices. 

 

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thank you.

Have you tried resetting and resecuring the router? Assuming you are using wifi for all devices.

Yes, we've tried that one several times. Thanks for the idea.

Tough one...can you connect one computer directly to the modem...bypassing the router? If so, what happens

when you click on Yahoo  ?

So, you were correct about resetting the router. I didn't understand I needed to do a complete "Factory" reset by pressing the RED button. Thank you for your assistance. We are now free to move our email about the country. :-)

I had that thought you may of just been disconnecting from the power.

 

Be sure to resecure the router...especially blocking remote access, change the default password to one of your own, and checking to be sure

its firewall is active.

 

You're welcome...happy surfin'
