What router is it? Have you checked yahoo help for info. I cant remember if there is a connection option with yahoo or not I gave it up long ago. Yahoo if my memory serves me well have a very good help facility so its worth looking there

sorry should have also asked what version of windows you using. xp has a built in firewall and if active along with the router you may be lucky to connect to anything much. What did you have before for a firewall? are you using cable or adsl? How many computers are connected to the router? lots of questions.

Hi anon1. I'm using a netgear router and only have a laptop connected at the mo via a wifi connection. I have xp but dont have the software firewall enabled. I've tried the various things which yahoo help suggested none of which seem to work, although weirdly I did manage to connect this week but now I cant again and I cant think wahts changed. Unfortunatley I know little about the set up of the firewall on the router as a friend did it! any suggestions gratefully received!
