    When I log into my Yahoo.com mail account , which is everyday I have
    to enter the password twice. This doesnt make any sense to me.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks.

    I don't know how your computer connects to the Internet.
    On mine, I have a wired router and wired ADSL service.

    I use a packet sniffer, when I have a puzzle to solve that
    involves networking and remote devices. The tool I use
    is called Wireshark.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireshark

    What the display shows, is any packets sent by your computer, or
    any packets coming back as an answer, from a remote device. For
    example, when you send your userid and password to Yahoo, the
    yahoo machine may have some unique response, that would tell
    you whether the login was accepted.

    I use Wireshark, for figuring out why my newsgroup reader isn't working.
    And occasionally, for other kinds of network problems. Or, even to
    watch my Firefox browser, and all the wacky web sites it visits for
    all the advertising. If there is going to be a browser hijacking,
    checking the entries in Wireshark later, may indicate where the
    infection came from.

    In the menu "View:Name Resolution:Enable For Network Layer", you can
    turn on that tick box, before you start capturing packets. When
    you use the Capture:Interfaces item, one of the entries will look
    more "realistic" and have an IP address you recognize from the way
    you've set up your network. You click the Start button there, to
    start capturing packets.

    Anyway, that is a tool that can help you figure it out.

    For example, when my newsserver is screwed up, I can see
    the userid and password go to the server, and then the server
    just sits there for a minute or two and nothing happens. From
    that, I can tell the server is broken, and isn't likely to be
    serving me anything. I can then switch news servers and try
    another one. In that case, I might see more of the normal things
    coming from that server. So Wireshark is handy for checking
    whether anything good is happening.
