Network Academy

I am having trouble with connecting to cisco's networking academy connection. I am currently enrolled in ccna2.

At school, I can login just fine. But at my house I cannot login. When I type in my username and pass, it goes to the start page
My instructor told me to installed macromedia flash player and macromedia shockwave player and it did not help. I have tried both mozilla firefox and IE to connect and it will not work with either of the two.

Can someone please help me out here. I have tried calling support but I cant seem to talk to someone who knows anything about the networking academy connection. I have also sent an email 2 weeks ago without a response. Which is very displeasing.

So if anyone can help me out here, it will be greatly appreciated.

    Cisco curriculum website does not support certain firewalls and antivirus softwares. Disable your antivirus/firewall and try to login or better still get norton. I had a similar incident with a certain antivirus but after changing to norton i was able to access the site without having to disable my antivirus. Also make sure you got IE 6 service pack 2 and macromedia flash player.

    Thanks man, disabling my firewall fixed the problem. I am using a norton firewall. I tried adding the site so that I dont have to completly disable it but that did not work.

    Glad to hear that. I found semester 2 to be rather interesting compared to others. I am currently revising semester 4. I really enjoy learning from the cisco netacad since everything is well explained. I dont mind spending a few quid in a quiet cybercafe when home turns chaotic.
