      Worked for me anyway

      folks, i've picked up a possible solution for my wireless IE access problems of turning off Universal Plug and Play (Upnp) - i've worked in IT support for years (20!) and i cant see why this would only effect wireless, not wired connections, but it appears to have fixed my problems at last. maybe worth a try.

      Merry Christmas

      This is a pretty well known bug in the firmware for the white router.


      Razor: Its the bottom option in the blue panel on the left on the routers main menu (if on the white router)
