      Installation Without IE7

      Please forgive me if this question has already been asked but Iím new to this broadband and Ethernet thing. I received my broad band package from sky (free offer) connected up all the cables put the installation disc in all fine so far, then got to the point where it said install MicroSoft IE7. This program I do not want on my computer as I have read lots of bad reports in the computer mags of how it screws up your PC. How do I do an installation with out IE7? I have tried putting the DNS settings (195.40.1.36) in myself, but get an error message 678. Is there a set of instructions for a total manual installation? I have e-mailed Sky but that was over a week ago and stills no answer. What right do Sky have to say what I have to put on my computer, I would be interested in your opinion on this.

      Thank You for Any Help Given (where would we be without it)

      You do not need the installation CD to work the router - it will work straight out of the box. So you do not have to install IE7. Don't change the DNS either, the router already has the DNS coded in the firmware.

      Definately don't use the CD, as mentioned above it will work out of the box. I don't use IE 7 as I use Firefox and it works perfectly.
