I have been given an old Sky broadband router by a member of my family, i use it only as a router to connect my prnter wirelessly. I can can do this fine but surf the net via a mobile broadband dongle. When i have the router on and i'm connected to the internet and go to another page i get the routers web interface which won't let me open any other sites. I don't have the user name and password which is required to change any settings.
Is there a way that i can prevent the web interface from interfering or should i buy a a new router?
Thats fantastic, worked brilliantly. I can now change the settings. having looked through the options i can see any settings which look like they relate to my issue.
I want to be able to use it as a router only and don't want the web interface to appear whilst i'm surfing. If i was to put the IP address on a block list would it simply ignore the router an carry on or would it pause the loading of the webpage?
