I used to be able to access my router to change the settings (firewall, who can access etc.) I'm not sure what this process is called. In IE.6 I could access is just fine, but now that microsoft has automatically updated internet explorer to IE.7 it no longer lets me access my router???
Could anyone please explain to me why this is happening and possible how I can get around it>???

Much Thank! :thumbsup:

My IE7 acts a bit funny. Ensure that you type the entire router number into the address bar ( in my case) and then click on the little green arrow to the right of the address bar - it got me in just now.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Use Firefox 2.0..., IE 7 was designed to be compatibly with Windows Vista. Microsoft release it but with all the trouble it's beta to me.

Microsoft doesn't force the upgrade to IE7 you can customize you windows updating (non Automatic).

Use IE6 if a site is way behind the times and doesn't support functions in any other browser but Exployer.
