Bizarre thing on IE8!

Very weirdly, when I type in www.ebay.co.uk into IE8, it redirects me to eBay mobile the WAP mobile version of eBay!
Any ideas? This only happens in ie8, works OK in Safari.

Try doing the compatibility view and see if that fixes the problem.

Internet Explorer Compatibility View - Turn On or Off

Thanks for that, but I had already tried that and it makes no difference. Just keeps kicking me onto eBay Mobile when I type in www.ebay.co.uk!
Very weird.

I can't duplicate this on my end ... what is the site name it redirects you to?

There's a link on my first post, it's eBay mobile
The same thing happens with www.ebay.com so it's not just the .co.uk one.

That is a good one. Have you tried resetting IE? Click on tools, internet options, advanced tab, then click reset... towards the bottom of the window

Try clicking on classic when you get to that page and it should be the right size. Its on the bottom under the copy right and the other stuff there.

You can also do this with a Command prompt for next time and for referrence

Just type "ipconfig /flushdns" (without quotes) in the command window and your saved DNS cache will be deleted. I guess it's just as easy to do it the way Iknewitwin7 posted but us old windoze guys like our old ways sometimes
