mozilla not working properly after switch to broadband


I use Mandrake LE2005 with Mozilla 1.7.6 and mozilla mail.

When using dial up Mozilla worked great, now have broadband 512K connected via a router. Mozilla mail does not get past trying to connect to server (virgin.net) when using my Virgin account. I have 2 accounts on Mozilla, Virgin won't send mail but if I send from other account via Virgin Mozilla asks for a password and the message is sent.

Mozilla browser works until I get to a login screen when it sits "connecting".Have also tested without success Fireox.

I'm assuming that some security feature is causing the problem -anyone got an idea what ?

NOTE. Kmail and Konqueror work fine but I don't want to use Konqueror for browsing since some sites just don't work well with it.

thanks in advance

Andy

helps if you tell us what kind of connection you have, what router you have etc... most likely it's something on the router itself... no logs on it?

its a D-link DSL-G604T connected via eth0. The router's system log shows PPPoA being established and no errors, when I connect using Konqueror /Kmail I am successful, so I cannot see how the problem can be in the router. Also works fine under windows.

I have just reset the router and retried a site that fails at login - again no errors reported in the router log file.

solved it. ipv6 was the problem , this stopped secure websites working. Other threads on this site and others used this fix when no internet was not working at all.

added to /etc/modprobe.conf

alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off

mozilla now works with my D-link router
