I should really have been a bit more specific. I have a Netgear DG384 v2 (used as a switch), a Linksys G broadband wireless router (used for the wireless network) and a BT supplied giant ibox looking thingy called a BT home hub and it’s this that’s causing the problems. It’s all working fine together except since I upgraded to IE7 I needed to access the BT Home hub to disable the wireless network this just did not work.
I downloaded the MS user agent utility but when logging into the BT home hub it hangs on “you are being redirected”.
I suspect that IE6 is hardwired into the device (which is only a few days old) as it works perfectly with IE6 but this is very annoying.
