    Opera Broken (Opera 5.10)

    On my system, I have IE 5, NS 4.77, and Opera 5.1. (StarOffice has a built in browser too.) I like to use Opera whenever I can, resorting to IE when a site only works there. I have a constant cable internet connection.

    For the past week Opera refuses to connect to the internet. IE and Netscape are both working (as is StarOffice). Netscape, which I installed when we first got the cable service, connects through a proxy server, IE does not. I keep swithching back and forth with Opera hoping to get it to work. Sometimes I get Error 400 (not 401), but most times I get the never ending "looking up host..." in the status bar.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Dave.

    For some unexplained reason, Opera started working again as soon as I posted the question . . .

    Makes me feel like I do sometimes when I take the car to the mechanic and everything works fine . . . I remember the "major transmission problem" that had me worried once. Turned out I had the seat so far back that I couln't press the clutch far enough . . . "Major transmission problem" solved by moving the seat up . . .

    As of 10 July 2001, @Home has go to DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). So if Opera is not supported with protocol you need to contact @Home for a Static IP address.
    If you are on @Home this may be your problem or if you have a different service they to may have gone to DHCP.

    Hope this may help.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Opera is up to version 5.12 now. You might want to update to the latest.
