I open IE, and the router then redirects to 192.168.0.1 from Google. This is the config page, to try to fix the connection. In time, the connection fixes, but clicking refresh doesn't get me on to Google, and neither does the top right search bar. The only thing I've found that works is reopening IE. I think that IE 'learns' in some way that Google's IP is 192.168.0.1. How can I persuade it that it's wrong, without reopening.
Ideally, I'd like a fix which I only have to do once. I've got VC++ 2010, so if there's a short Add-on I need to write, I can.
It turns out that I don't always need to restart IE. Opening new tabs, I got the sequence Google, Router, Google, Router, Google, Google. Odd or what?
Just to be clear, I'll give an exact example. I opened IE8, and the home page www.google.co.uk/ was redirected to *192.168.0.1/sky_information.html*. I then noticed that the status light on my router had turned green, so I clicked Refresh, and got the normal page for 192.168.0.1, which went to *www.google.co.uk/sky_router_status.html*, which loaded sucessfully with a status page on my router. I then opened a new tab, and went to www.google.co.uk/, which loaded sucessfully, and which I used to reach this page.
