Righto LNB.Time to uncheck then.

>>In my settings I've got 'bypass proxy server for local addresses' as checked but greyed in at the same time. Sounds like I need to keep it checked then.
Again that is only used on LANs whereby you have servers that can be accessed directly rather than going out to the WAN.
Hope everythings sorted now.

Gary I've unticked the upnp and ping boxes in the router section (as advised in forum) and still have 'bypass proxy server for local addresses' as checked but greyed in under LAN settings.I've only lost my connection once since activation 10 days ago, so best to leave LAN settings as they are do you think? You kind of lost me a bit with your explanation in your last post.

I've followed Ratti's IE setup procedure (religously) several times, I have NO firewall/anti-spam s/w installed and yet I still can't get IE 6 to 'collect' to sky.
My message is:
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'home', Server: 'pop.sky.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10051, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
Just called NTL to canx my account with them and they've offered me 6 months free subscription to stay with them. To be honest, due to poor speed, crap UI on skyemail and now the issues with IE I think I'll canx Sky and stick to NTL - REALLY didn't want to do this but Sky's POOR.
