No upload via Router

I cant send e-mail at all, either web based or pop3 via router. i run sped test on line and it shows download ok, but when it comes to upload test, it waits a while and then turn blank page. When I disconect the router and conect my pc directly via adsl modem, internet works fine. I have the SMCWBR14-G2 wireless router.
I surf in the net very well, but I can not send and receive mail.
In the router setup I see nothing about mail.
Can anybody help me?
best regards

Hi there :
the only thing that could be done is to change the MTU level to 1365 or reduce it to 1300 as well if u feel it is necessary ....


it will perfectly be working after that


if still the problem prevails then u can upgrade the firmware of the router as well

for this kind of situation, you need to contact your internet service provider, and get the incoming and outgoing mail server, and you need to make sure that you can access your email thru the web. if it is, you can start reconfiguring your email, it cant find the server because, most of the time the password of your email thru the web and outlook is not the same.

Linksys no longer appears on my laptop for some reason. how do i restore it. i can't go on line without it?


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.

NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).

Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page

NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.

Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

3676-003.png

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

The router's password can be changed by:



i. Running the router's setup CD. Click here to learn how to download firmware.
ii. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page. Click here to learn how to change password on the web-based setup page.

Unable to Access the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
Reset your router for 30 seconds. Try accessing again using the default IP address "192.168.1.1". If you are encountering problems accessing the router's web-based setup page, click here.

My router will not connect the power light keeps blinking


Check this tip out from Linksys. It is for a G VPN Router but you could use the same steps to troubleshoot. Title: Resolving Blinking Power or Diag LED on a Linksys Wireless-G VPN Router Article ID: 4982 If the Power LED on your Linksys router is blinking, this means the device is not ready. It should go off once the router completes its diagnostic test. If the Power LED won?t go off, it indicates that there?s a possible hardware problem with the router. To resolve this, you will need to perform five steps: Resetting the Router Assigning Static IP to the Computer Pinging the Router Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page Updating the Router?s Firmware For instructions on how to reset the router, follow the steps below. Resetting the Router Hold in the RESET button at the back of the router for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router then plug it back in. If after resetting the router and the Power LED is still blinking, try resetting the router again for another 30 seconds. Then proceed with assigning a static IP address on the PC. For instructions, follow the steps below. Assigning a Static IP Address on Your Computer Most of the time, if the power LED on the router is blinking it loses its ability to assign IP addresses to the PCs connected to it, which is why you need to assign the computer a static IP address. After assigning a static IP address on the computer, check if the computer is still communicating to the router by performing a ping test. To ping the router, follow the steps below. Pinging the Router Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection. In this example, our router IP address is 192.168.1.1. NOTE: If you?re using Windows 98 or ME, click here. Windows 2000/XP Step 1: Click Start, then Run. Step 2: When the Run window opens, type ?cmd? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. Windows 98/ME Step 1: Click Start, then Run. A window similar to Step 2 will appear. Step 2: When the Run window appears, type ?command? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. If you get good responses from the router, access the router?s web-based setup page to see if a firmware update is possible. For instructions, follow the steps below. Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page In order to perform a firmware update, you should be able to access the router?s web-based setup page. Updating the firmware is one way of resolving the blinking power light on the Linksys router. To access the router?s web-based setup page, click here. NOTE: If you?re having difficulties accessing the router?s web-based setup page, the router is considered defective. If you?re able to access the router?s web-based setup page, proceed in updating the firmware upgrade.

We just installed this router. Network is running fine but I can't get my outgoing mail to send via Mail (Mac). Says it cannot send via the smtp server. Any ideas what might need to be updated?


It might not really a problem with the router hooked up. If it is... try using a different SMTP port for your Mac Mail - specify like port 25 or 587 , etc. Try Using Authentication = None

Linksys wrt160nl wireless router causing e-mail issues


Hmm... That sounds like a port forwarding issue. I take it that you using a POP3 e-mail client since you said your ISP e-mail server sends you your messages? I would suggest that you open up your linksys configuration (the webpage for the settings), click on the Applications & Gaming tab and Single Port Forwarding sub tab. Then, for the first row, select POP3 as Application Name, and your computer's IP Address as To IP Address, enabled it, and click save settings at the bottom. This should hopefully make it work.

No upload via Router


EZ reset; unplug the internet from the modem to the router and the AC power. Unplug all devices plugged into the router. Have a java with or without cream or sugar. Plug router AC and internet back in. Plug in your computer in that order. Have a couple sips of java. Put cup down and reload your browser. You might have to restart your PC but not usually. If you still have problems, unplu everything including the modem. Power and replug everything from the modem outward, and only add devices one at a time. Always take your time as you go from one to the next. Rots of Ruck.
