IE7 - Speedtouch router logon

Since upgrading to IE7 I cannot now connect to my Speedtouch router. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have a solution?

I know the username and password are correct as I can access via my IE6 laptop as before.

TIA,

Rog.

IE7 - Speedtouch router logon

This issue has been discussed a fair bit on the Be Forum since the BeBox issued to all customers is a Speedtouch. Here are some quotes from the relevent area
Quote

For those of you having problems with IE7 and the BeBox, try this

Start / Run: fill in: CMD, Press OK
In the DOS box (black screen) type in:
telnet 192.168.1.254 <enter>
Username:Huh?? <enter>
Password:Huh?? <enter>
On the telnet prompt enter:
system config digestauth=disabled <enter>
type in: saveall <enter>
Close the window & try your SpeedTouch

I guess this trick will work for passworded Bebox and users using IE7.

Disabling http digest authentication is not recommended if you want security:

The IE7 incompatibility with Speedtouch router/modems is also mentioned in speedtouch forums:

This is a Internet Explorer 7 problem that Microsoft has to fix.

And it seems even if you 'saveall', when rebooting the bebox you need to repeat this procedure. Guess it reverts to standard http digest authentication upon reboot.

Otherwise you could always use Firefox I guess! Wink

The BeBoxes are either 716s or 780s but I daresay a variety of Speedtouchs work similarly
