Apologies for crossposting

I posed this question before in the XP news group and got a less than
polite response from
an inmate intimating that I had been an idle individual for not
looking elsewhere. Judging by his/her reply I assumed he/she meant
Google. I'm not idle, stupid maybe, inept probably, desparate
definitely. I would really like some help please.

Well I've googled smoogled and and every other *** y oogle and have
been unable to come up with a reason for the error message. Results 1
- 10 of about 15,000,000 for You were denied access because:.
Results 1 - 10 of about 24,200,000 for Access denied by access control
list.

This is what I get when Internet Explorer (6) launches.

Forbidden
You were denied access because:
Access denied by access control list.

Microsoft's own entry via google was unintelligible to me and was no
help at all. I don't really care that I can't use Microsoft Internet
Exlorer as I use exclusively Firefox. However, I cannot download
updates unless I can use MSIE. And if I'm wrong about this too then
tell me another way.

I can do everything on the web that I want to but cannot do it with
MSIE, I've got XP Home legal and SP2 installed. MSIE 6 too.

Please help if you can.

Since I posted the above to XP group I have discovered by trial and
error that this only happens when I am using my Netgear router. As far
as I am aware I am using the same set up as original as I saved them
to file once I had the router up and running and configured.

If I use another modem (and I have tried two) then I can access the
web via IE6 and Firefox. If I switch back to the netgear router then I
get the error message again with IE6 but firefox is OK.

Hi William :-)

Are you behind a router by chance?

If you are using a cable modem or are behind a router then ...

Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections (TAB) > LAN Settings
(Button).
and check that it is set to "Automatically detect settings".

You can connect using either modem (only) but you can't connect using the
router with either of them?

If instead you meant you've tried another router and can connect using it,
I'd suggest reinstalling the Netgear router from scratch according to the
manual.
