I can't connect to the classifieds. I thought it was my new computer but I can't connect on the old one anymore.

Any thoughts why?

It's working for me at the time of this post. Try again in case it was just the system throwing a wobbly.

Sometimes I can't connect to the ads with aol - if you are using aol, try using internet explorer instead.

still can't connect

No, still doesn't work. And I am using the internet. We have high speed internet and everything else works. I get an error message that says there's been a connection failure.

Even tried going through links for reviewing the ad I've placed. That didn't work either.

Now what should I try?

What Internet Service Provider do you use?

SBC I've had the same email address for years. This is only a recent issue.

I had my son take a look at the issue, and this is what he found. Apparently the link at the top of the website points to http://www.tug1.org/tugads/adshome.php3

Well, it doesn't appear that www.tug1.org is a valid website - at least, we're not able to reach it.

However, if you copy the link into your browser's address bar and change it to read http://www.tug2.net/tugads/adshome.php3, the Classifieds pop right up.

Hopefully this helps anyone else who had/has/will have this problem.

For me, it's all in the mystery of computers. I've got a new lap top and am trying to understand the wealth of capabilities available to me. But so far, even starting at page 1 of the manuals that came with it, I get lost.

Maybe someone who put together the new TUG website can enlighten us as to why some of the url's aren't available for my computer.
