Can't Open Yahoo Pages
Anyone,
I cannot open the Yahoo homepage. I can open my.yahoo.com, but not yahoo.com. I cannot access any of the other yahoo website pages. When I click on Sports, Shopping, or anything the webpage will not open. I have tried deleting all of my cookies and browser information. I have deleted my temp folder items. I have deleted my prefetch folder items. I have turned off my firewall. I have even tried turning all of the security features in my internet explorer off. I have the full version of AdAware and I have no spyware/malware. I am using AVG v7.5 antivirus. Nothing has worked. Someone please help. (I also tried using Firefox & Slick Browser ... neither have worked)

I am running internet explorer 7 on a Windows XP 64Bit desktop. Most of my computer's specs are listed under my profile. I really need yahoo for my fantasy sports !!!!!! Someone please help !!!!

Also ...
Sorry ... this is the message I get in internet explorer ...

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.

Retype the address.

Go back to the previous page.

I'm having the same problem. But only when I'm in WiFi spots. Yahoo won't even let me sign in, it goes directly back to the sign in page, as if I hadn't signed in yet. U/N and P/W are correct but mine doesn't come up unavailable.

When did this start happening? It sounds like there might be something with Yahoo updating their server information.

Sometimes for weird problems like this you need to flush out the DNS cache, as follows.

Start - Run - cmd - OK
ipconfig /flushdns

Try it; it won't hurt.

Question can not connect to yahoo
The problem I'm having with yahoo started about a month ago. I can bring up yahoo but only the sign in pages. When I sign in it kicks back to the sign in page again, as if I hadn't even signed in. This hasn't happened at home just on my laptop when I'm on the road with Wifi. Ant ideas?

lightmom, of course datpino appreciates all help and even information about similar problems. But when asking for help please stick with your own thread (and I know you already have one because I'm wondering when you will respond to my post in it).

OK, let's try the following.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

ping 216.109.112.135
ping yahoo.com

For each of those did you get Replies or did you get packets lost?

Also in your browser try loading 216.109.112.135 by typing that in the address bar.

Ping Worked
I can ping 216.109.112.135 & yahoo.com and I get a response with no packets lost

When I try going to 216.109.112.135 in my internet explorer I get the following message:

Sorry, the page you requested was not found.
Please check the URL for proper spelling and capitalization. If you're still having trouble locating a destination on Yahoo!, try visiting the Yahoo! home page (www.yahoo.com), or look through a list of Yahoo!'s online services. Also, you may find what you're looking for if you try searching below.

yahoo.com also doesn't work still =(
