I missed that Ken, I will try a Reset then rather than a cycle.

I have just managed to run a longer CAT5 and connect to the router using this, I still cannot see the homepage from the Win 7 machine. I can still see it using the XP machine.

I'll post back any results.

Thanks for your help so far!

Woody.

Could be worth a shot with IPv6 turned off.

Disabled IPv6 and still unable to view the homepage.

Host file checked, nothing at all listed as blocking.

I've just finished resetting the router, still unable to view the page.

Interestingly enough, before I reset it, I pressed F5 to refresh the page and it flashed up. I kept on pressing F5 to refresh the page and it popped up again, this time I was pressing it slowly enough to be able to stop it on the displayed page. I could alter settings etc and all was well.
I then logged out, logged back in and could not see the page again - remember it does load it, just not display it.

I reset the router, and had to enter the settings using my XP laptop, enabled wireless and tried to view the router homepage from the win 7 PC - no luck. I have tried to press F5 many times and it says it is loading the page, but I still cannot see it.

This definitely sounds like a javascript being blocked or not working issue. Have you tried with multiple browsers on the same machine?

Hi MacGyvr,
I have tried Firefox, IE8 and Chrome!

Cheers,

Try deleting all cache and cookies in the browser. What are the IP addresses on the machine having problems and your XP laptop that works?
