    You really need to "bite the bullet", reset your router and attempt to login with defaults. As mentioned before, you'll then need to reset all the options (e.g. including your wireless settings/encryption/etc)

    If you have a simple cable connection you should be OK but other connection types (like PPPoE) may also require assistance from your ISP to reset the correct values.

    If you need it, you can download the router's user manual if you register with Huawei here.
    > You might also join their own forums here to talk to others using your same router

    G'luck! :)

    you still can;t login after resetting both the router and internet explorer??? (and you don't have CAP LOCK set do you?) cause all i can otherwise suggest is it's time to get a new router :dead: Sorry

    Wait a minute.... TalkTalk is your ISP??? Then you should call them for support as i can now see this is a combination ADSL modem and router they support.

    You can get the user manual directly from them here as well as find router info on their web site (e.g. see here). If you still can't login to it you should call them for information needed about the reset

    @jobeard
    All said and true. In fact, i prefer keeping ipv6 off myself. But i think you perhaps missed my point(s) in my earlier posts. I was specifically addressing your statement
    At minimum the statement needs a caveat / "heads up" for Win 7 users. Please note:
    1) Win 7 users who turn off ipv6 need be warned they may find some of their Windows apps no longer working and
    2) !! HomeGroups (which are new to Win 7) will simply not work with ipv6 off !! (The Homegroup replaces the old tried and true "Workgroup")

    In fact i'd take it one step further, a Win 7 user can't even create a Homegroup if ipv6 is turned off. See the result below
