I am wondering if you can steer me in the right direction.
I can't hold an internet connection for over a month.
We replaced the router downstairs and that wasn't it.
We just got a new ethernet thing with the antena that plugs into mine
for the wire less. It wasn't that.
I updated safari.
I downloaded fox fire to see if it is safari.
No matter what I do, I go on and disconnect. Maybe instantly - maybe
a minute - maybe 10 minutes.
I am using the G5 with OS 10.4.11. It happens in OS10 or 9.
Here are some other odd things.
when I go to email, and say I hit j for jackie, normally all the j
emails come up. they arent. just j phone numbers. that is something I
just noticed today yesterday.
every couple days my screen will just fade to black starting and the top
going to the bottom and I get some message about looking for
debugging. I don't know what that is, but I just lock up and have to
if I just disconnect while on the net the message says - the
application safari quit unexpectedly.
I ran disc utility and it didn't find anything. I am having no
problems when I am working in quark. It seems to be all internet
It all started when I was on facebook, in Yoville. I disconnected and
it has been happening since. Every time I would try and open facebook I would get some redirect thing trying to download. I couldn't open it or anything. That stopped after a couple days.
I think that might be when I updated 10.4 and safari.
Any advice would be appreciated. I don't know what to do.
I don't want to have to re-install the operating system. Everything else is working. It is only the internet and mail.
