    Hi,

    I've got a Linksys WRT53GS router and ever since IE7 came out i've had problems accessing the router using the web interface (so I can change setting) it just won't load up.

    I have found a few others that have had the same problem but can't find a solution, it also affects firefox??? I read something about IPv6 being the problem but again no solution???

    I'm using Vista but had the problem with XP.

    thanks

    I have to admit Vista does indeed seem to be a bit flaky on the network side. Not sure if i'm doing something wrong.

    Sometimes my primary DNS server comes up as 0.0.0.0 amougst other things.

    I have to reboot my cable modem and ipconfig /renew half a dozen times until ipconfig shows sensible settings.

    Anyone got any pointers ? How does vista differ from XP, how do the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols interoperate ?

    Just found this :-

    IPv4 and IPv6 don't interoperate with one another directly. You can tunnel IPv6 traffic over IPv4 using a tunneling mechanism, such as 6over4, 6to4, Teredo, or ISATAP. Vista includes 6to4 and Teredo support by default.

    I don't think the problem is Vista as I had the same problem with XP, the odd thing is that I have a older machine with XP on but uses IE6 and that can connect but non of the new machines can??

    I goto log in (192.168 etc) and the page thinks for a wait then nothing.

    Very many routers use Javascript or Java for their logon. If this is switched off on your browser then you will not be able to access the router.

    Ozzy,

    I take it the unit functions correctly other than not being able to access the config page?

    Is it a possible you have turned the web access function off by accident?

    Can you telnet in to the device?

    If you have your dsl username and password perhaps a reset is the next option.
