BT and D-Link wireless range extender and IE 7 conflict - should I downgrade to IE 6 and if so how???

We have issues with our BT broadband and a D-Link wireless range extender, that is every time BT goes down the extender needs to be re-set so they can talk to each other as BT changes the channel. Any suggestions?

And one machine out of the 4 on our network has IE 7 whereas the others have IE 6, and I have heard there are problems with IE 7 and BT broadband. Should I take out the IE 7 and go back to IE 6? And if so, how do I do it?

Thanks ecademists!

John, I have several customer who have BT Broadband and none of them have reported any issues with IE7. If you go into the wireless setup on the BTBroandband box, can you select the channel. It is probably set to auto, or discover. If you can set the channel number then it will always use this. The problem is actually the D-Link range extender not realising what has gone on. Personally we don't recommend them, they tend not to be good equipment.

Depending on the router you have you may be able to select a channel and fix it to that. IE 7 should work regardless of your connection, and soon those with IE6 will have 7 offered as an update. 7 is far better, but you will see issues with how it works with some software, this comes down to the changes made in the security in IE 7.
