Computery stuff

I recently changed to a wireless modem router from my standard bt one and it all works fine.
However the spotty youth who installed it for me forgot to configure outlook express to work with this,when I try and access it, it looks for a connection and asks for details etc,obviously it cant find anything so goes round in circles.
How can I fix it?, eventually I'll get the aformentioned spotty youth back to fix it but its not urgent and if I can do it myself I will.

Thanks Antoneye,I suspected it could be a simple fix but dont use it often enough for me to be familiar with how it works.

The give-away was the fact it asked for a connection each time.

The freebie modems they give away with Broadband work just like the old telephone modems, and require a "connection" setup to connect to the outside world.

When you switch to a router, there is no "connection" as the outside world appears to be part of your network.

OE didn't know that, hence it was asking for a connection each time, so you just had to tell it not to.
