The 691 Member ID / Password error can be caused by several factors. The following information should help you to identify the cause of the error and resolve this issue.
A. Are you entering your Member ID and Password correctly?
Ensure that you are entering your BlueLight Internet Member ID and Password correctly. Note that your Member ID is everything to the left of the @ symbol in your email address. For example, the Member ID for firstname.lastname@example.org is bobjones.
Be sure to enter your password all in lower case. If your password is not working, please check to see that your Caps Lock key is not active.
Note: If you forgot your password, remember that there is a Forgot my Password button on the Welcome screen.
B. Was your account successfully created?
If your BlueLight Internet account was created, you should have seen the confirmation screen below with your new account information. In addition, if you were ever able to successfully log in to your account, it should be valid.
C. Do you have the software set to automatically remember your Password?
Sometimes, the password entered into the BlueLight Internet software may be changed. This can happen if, for example, someone accidentally presses a key on the keyboard. If you are sure your password is correct, delete the password currently in the software and re-type it. If the password was accidentally changed, this will fix the error.
D. Have you reset your password recently?
If you have reset your password recently, make sure to enter the new password into the BlueLight Internet software, especially if you have it set to remember your password. If you are unsure which password the software remembers, clear the existing password, and enter your new password on the BlueLight Internet Log-on screen before attempting to connect. If you never reset your password, it should be the same one you used when signing up for a BlueLight Internet account. Remember to enter your password in all lower case letters.
