Internet explorer not working with new siemens router.
Ive just installed a new siemens gigaset se587 router supplied to me by tiscali. Before installation ie7 was working fine,since installation i can no longer use ie..i can access the internet through firefox with no problems but ie is telling me its something reguarding my proxy settings. Tiscali originally told me that my ie must be corrupted so i installed ie8 instead but still no go and they've told me there is nothing they can do about it. Is there anyway to solve this problem myself?

Any of the major manufacturers ie: Linksys, Belkin, D-Link Cnet etc. will work. Go to your local computer or office supply store and tell them the router that you have and they should be able to direct you in the right direction. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
What i would suggest is either using the suggested routers which are suggested for the reason of they are know to connect with little error. Other routers conduct themselfs differently and cause errors. What you might try is updating your router and drivers on your computer. This should update your router to the best know configuration and allow the smoothest opperations. If this doesn't answer your problem please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it.
I look forward to your posts.
If this is router is gifted to you by a friend of yours who is from UK, Please check if this is locked. Most of the times these would be locked by the ISP. This is a router provide by tiscali UK. Please select the dialing number to 0,38 this is the dialing code for india.
If you use this should work and use 192.168.1.1 as default DNS.
I have solved my problem, after researching various messageboards yesterday to try and discover why my Siemens Tiscali router didn't work. I'm going to send it back and go with another company!
It seems there has been a lot of debate on these messageboards about Tiscali and/or Siemens products and it now seems also that no one would recommend them. I hereby add my name to that list.
Go into 'control panel' then 'network connections' and right click on your 'local area connection'. Select 'internet protocol' at the bottom of the list and click on 'properties'. Ensure that 'Obtain an IP address automatically' is selected. Run through the installation disk again and my guess is it will work. Despite this being relatively simple no one at tiscali suggested this over the course of 2 weeks which I found astonishing.
The Default gateway for Siemens Gigaset SE587 is 192.168.1.1. Open Internet Explorer and put the def gateway in the browser.
The default username and password for siemns router is admin.
Click on Setup Tab than Basic Setup on left hand side. Update the details as folloing- Use – Tiscali data PPPoA Interface PVC Selection – Tiscali data PPPoA Authentication – Auto User Name - Tiscali u/n Password - Tiscali password PPPoA Connection Mode- Always On NAT - ON
And click on save settings. To confirm if the customer is connected, check the status of Online light – which should be green. Alternatively click on status (On top) to check internet status to confirm connection.
Setting Up Wireless connection – Click on da wireless tab on the top.
Ensure that the Auto channel is disabled and the wireless channel is 11, wireless n/w is Enabled and mode is Mixed.
To secure the wireless connection – Click on Wireless Security option on left hand side If you want the Security mode as WPA than select the wireless security mode, as WPA and enter WPA Shared key which would be on the base ofthe router. Again click on save settings.
Try connecting to the wireless network again and I m sure it should work..... lemme know if it does.
