Vanguard Log-ons

Just curious if anyone else is having difficulty getting access to their online accounts. I have been trying since 8 pm Sat night off and on and still can not access. Get pass the log-on entries and the site seems to just hang.
We have been on a 3 week roadtrip and had only limited access to a secure link so thought I see what last week's damage looked like. No luck so far.
Anyone else getting there?

I just logged on with no problems. It took less than 6 seconds by the clock, after typing in the password (and no perceptible time to get to the password page).

You know, they DID do a software upgrade a few weeks ago. I have found that it takes a few more seconds to fully load. Maybe that is what you are noticing.

The site worked fine for me the other night, and verified again just now.

For what it's worth, it took about 8-9 seconds between entering the password and when the portfolio page fully loaded including the flash based asset mix widget, on a very old Pentium-III toshiba laptop.

The sites been really slow since the "upgrade" :
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Thanks to all for sharing your inputs. I got home a couple hours ago and accessed successfully through my usual ISP and had no problem. Apparently Vanguard did not like me accessing from a data card.
Thanks again

I've been able to get on, but it's been slow. I've just been checking my balances a couple of times.

I heard you can't get on because they gave all the money away!
