I made notes and I see that I kept the default "admin" password" when I first setup my WAP54G access point using the earlier version of IExplorer (6 of some kind I believe). Had to use IE because Mozilla could never contact the router.
Anyway, I updated to IExplorer7 not long ago and now I can't access the router setup. It won't take "admin" password any more. Doesn't seem likely but could this be due to the IE7 update?
Is my only option to hard reset the router and start all over? Thanks.
First try flushing the IE7 cache and refreshing the login page with . If that fails, try a different browser.
Note: Next time you ask a question, supply as much hardware information as possible. The model number is often insufficient.
Ah, I'll bet this is something encoded in 'hardware' recall my question early in the week regarding DD-WRT (23 I think) on a WRT54G v2? I was wondering if anyone had encountered problems with the Web config / gui was not rendering correctly in IE 7. Looks like maybe in typical fashion MS broke something in the 'upgrade'. Lucky for me the router functions right, just can't work with it in IE7.
I' sure something in MSHTMl/MSXML .dll has changed and even when you reverted back those .dlls were not rolled back. I do development work and installed MSXML 6 recently and have been wondering if that is what broke rendering in DDWRT on my router. On another computer that 'never' gets changed and is running 5 from several years ago all is fine...
George, I tried that a year or so ago and the only problem I found is that Thunderbird apparently can't handle two mail accounts which I keep separately on Mozilla. Or at least I couldn't figure out how to do it so I just got the latest Mozilla. Thanks.
It's easy in Thunderbird. You have a choice of dumping everything into one mailbox, which unfortunately is the default, or keeping them seperate. During the initial mailbox setup, it will ask "Use global inbox" which should be unchecked. You can change your mind at any time in the Account Settings pages. See:
Sir, thanks for the help. Do you know whether I can download Firefox and keep it/run it separately from Mozilla? If so, I could try it and make the transition a bit more controlled. I guess if that works, I could then install Thunderbird and see if I can get it to take over the Mozilla mail/newsgroup accounts.
Try not to ask two questions in the same sentence.
Also try not to transition between an email question, and a web browser question.
Yes, I know what happens when you install Firefox with an existing Netscape Navigator installation.
Yes, you can keep them seperate.
It would also be helpful if you would disclose what version of Netcape Navigator, Mozilla, or whatever you have installed.
If you have Netscape Navigator 8 installed, it uses exactly the same directory structure as Mozilla Firefox. You can have both installed on the same machine and they will both share each other bookmarks, user profiles, and history. Note that this is for the web browser, not for the email, which uses different directory structures. You can also elect to install Firefox in a different data directory structure during installation, and then import the bookmarks from Netscape Navigator 8. Lots of options. Whatever try, do NOT uninstall Netscape Navigator before installing Firefox. Firefox will not find the data files and you'll have to hack the bookmarks and such manually.
Mozilla Firefox = web browser Mozilla Thurderbird = email program. Netscape Navigator = web browser Netscape Communicator = web browser and email program. Mozilla = name of group that promotes the open source browser, email, and such. It is a company, not a product name.
The installation of Firefox has nothing to do with Thunderbird. They are totally seperate.
Apparently you are not aware of the existance of the product I am using, it's called -from the 'about' menu item: Mozilla 1.7.13 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.13) Gecko/20060414
The Mozilla group appears to name this product for itself. Netscape Communicator is nowhere to be found in this thing even though it appears they use a lot of the same machinery.
Egads. Y'er right. I'd totally forgotten about release that when it was transitioned to Firefox and Thunderbird and the old all in one Mozilla application became "SeaMonkey" and 1.7.13 was listed as "in transition" in 2003.
"The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as "Mozilla Application Suite"."
