This problems is due to the MTU (Maximum Transfer Unit) set in the router. I checked my Belkin and I could not find where to set it. It is usually under the advance tab in most routers.
I found a utility that will change it on the NIC card. Download and run DRTCP021.exe and set the MTU to 1452 if you have DSL or 1500 if you have cable. Set the MTU # in the MaxMTU box next to the NIC card shown.

Thanks, Joe

Cannot access my e-mail or send


If you can connect to the Internet then the problem is most likely the configuration of your email client. You want to make sure you have the correct settings for your incoming and outgoing mail servers in your mail client. The Standard port used by POP3 is 110 for incoming mail, Outgoing SMTP server uses Port 25. Make sure your router doesn't have these ports blocked

Problem sending email using Outlook 2010 on a PC and Linksys wireless network


i doubt the router has anything to do with the problem. most likely culprit is a pop server (handles incomming email). check with your email provider to see if they changed servers...
have you made any changes to your router or firewall? i guess it could be a port that got closed that your email was using
eh, here is a usefull website shows server names and ports used

Belkin F5D9230-4 won't allow a connection to M Exchange server


Login to your Belkin router and check to see if there is a firmware update available for your specific model. If so, download and install it as this may resolve the problem without doing anything else. (Be sure to save your configuration first)

The specifications for a F5D9230 state that it supports VPN passthrough so you shouldn't need to configure anything in the router itself. It may be necessary to open a few incoming ports but only as a last resort.

Would you also reply to this post and specify...
  1. What OS are you running on your pc?
  2. What VPN client are you using on your pc?
  3. Ask the administrator of the Exchange server if they're using PPTP or L2TP for VPN connections.
Another option would be to use OWA (Outlook Web Access) to access your email if it has been installed on the Exchange server.

Email problems with a WiFi network using a BT 2wire 2700HG


because you have a third party email account you will have to go into the email accounts and in options look for my outgoing server requires authentication and tick the box. You may also need autorization from bt as they may not allow the incoming emails. also check that any antivirus programmes arent stopping the outgoing mail and putting them in the outbox.

Emails


The default name server due to interaction with the router?s NAT firewall feature cannot resolve simple names such as ?mail?. There is a workaround for this: First, verify that the mail client is set up with simple server names. To view the server names entered into Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". If these are simple names like "Mail" and not something like "pop.myisp.mail.com" then use this work around. Second, make sure that the TCP/IP settings are configured to obtain an IP address automatically. In Windows 2000 also make sure that the TCP/IP settings are also configured for Obtain DNS server address automatically. Replace the mail server names with the mail server IP addresses. There are a couple ways this information can be obtained. Contacting the ISP and asking is one possible way. The other way is to reconnect the original computer to the modem. Make sure the computer is restarted or that the IP configuration is released and renewed and that the computer has obtained an IP address from the ISP. Open a "COMMAND" window by typing "CMD" in the run dialog box located in the "Start" menu. At the command prompt, type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the incoming mail server. The ISP server will return an IP address for the mail server. Record this address. Do the same for the outgoing mail server (if different): type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the outgoing mail server. Open the mail client (Outlook Express, etc.). For Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". Enter the incoming and outgoing mail server IP addresses into these fields. Click "Apply". Close the window and test the mail by sending an e-mail to the mailbox. (Send an E-mail to yourself. This will test the incoming and outgoing mail all at once)
