I have installed a Belkin 54g wireless router/modem for use with a friends laptop. All appears to be OK except that in order to connect to any website via Internet Explorer I have to open the Belkin's router settings and click "Connect" , close the router settings and then all is well. This happens with both wireless and ethernet connections.
Before doing this the status settings are all OK. I have set up a couple of other identical router/modems on wireless access with no problem.
The only thing I can think of is that she previously connected via a wired modem provided by BT and although this is not popping up with any "connect" dialog boxes it may be interfering in some way. I have removed the modem drivers but perhaps there is something else I need to do.
Can anyone shed some light on this.
Thanks in advance.
