Home Button and Start Page
The web page your USFamily.Net "Rocketship" dialer goes to
when you first dial in, is your START page. Your may set your start page by clicking here.
The web page your browser goes to whenever you press the "Home" button is your HOME page. The following tips discuss changing your home page setting in your browser.
When I click the "Home" button on the top of my browser I go to my old ISP (AOL, MSN, etc.) how do I fix that?
**** The address the home button goes to is under your control. To change it:
**** If you are using the Netscape Browser instead of Internet Explorer:
I want my browser to go directly to my selected home page not to
USFamily.Net when I connect. Can I do that?
**** Yes, once you have set the home button you can get there directly by clicking on your browser Icon (the big blue E or Netscape) instead of the USFamily.Net Icon (rocketship) at all. The browser should initiate the dialing and go to the start page you selected. This isn't recommended because it will cause you to miss any warnings from our system, if there ever are any on your account.
My browser Icon does not initiate dialing. What do I do?
**** This is changed in I.E. Internet options. Even if you are using Netscape you change it in Internet Explorer options.
To use Netscape instead of Internet Explorer simply click on the
Netscape Icon instead of the USFamily.Net rocket ship. Netscape will call the
default dialer automatically, which should be USFamily.Net. If you have trouble just
Or, call or e-mail us to receive a CD. Under utilities on our CD there is a button to reconfigure the rocket ship to call either Netscape or IE. This is not on our diskette.
A version of both Netscape and Internet Explorer are on our CD. The very latest versions are downloadable online. Check our downloads page.
