Once u setup wireless connection, other computer or laptop with wireless ON will able to detect your wireless SSID. They just need to connect to it. That's all.
*If is secured with WEP or WPA, then key need to be used to connect to your wireless.

I am able to receive email, but not send messages on one computer via the wireless router and I am able to do both with the other computer. How is that possible?


if you are using an e-mail program like outlook, make sure the outgoing e-mail server is configured properly with the correct port to let it sent out e-mails. make sure as well that you do not have any security software that will block you from sending e-mails using the computer on which you are having the issue . hope this helps

Can receive emails but cannot send emails


Send problems. There are several common causes of problems with sending email:

  • Mail queued. If you appear to be able to send email but it never arrives, it may be in a queue. Some applications put email in a queue when you send it, and the user has to manually send all queued mail to actually transmit it. Check your File and Edit menus for any queues, and also check the status of the email in the Out mailbox to see if it was actually sent -- if not, send it again.

  • Send on check. This is a common problem -- many email servers are configured to use the password authentication involved with checking mail to allow the sending of mail, and therefore require clients to check for mail at the same time or just before sending mail. If you get an intermittent error message and can send at some times and not others, make sure the option "send on check" is enabled in your email settings. As a temporary fix, you can often solve the problem by manually checking for mail shortly (a few seconds or minutes) before sending mail. This problem can also produce the message "relaying not allowed" described below, for much the same reason.

  • Relaying not allowed. Many Internet access providers require clients within their network to use their own servers for sending mail, as a policy intended to cut down on email spammers sending spam through other provider's servers. If you have more than one email address and can download mail without problems from a POP account with a different domain name than is used by your Internet access provider, but get the error "Relaying not allowed" when you try to send, then you probably need to set the outgoing SMTP server address to the mail server of your Internet service provider, instead of your email provider. Search your Internet network provider's home page or call technical assistance to obtain the address of their SMTP server, and enter it in your email client settings (first copy and save your existing server setting in case you need to set it back). This error message can also be produced by the "send on check" issue described in the bullet above.

  • Server down. If you can do a successful connection check, and the above suggestions don't help, and a recipient continues to say that email sent from you does not arrive, and you are certain their address is spelled correctly, then one of the email servers between you and your destination is likely down. Blocked email is typically cached and sent when the missing server comes back up, usually within a few hours or days. If the problem persists and you can successfully send to other email addresses, then the email provider of your recipient is likely having a problem -- you should contact them by phone and ask them if they are getting email from anyone else, request they send an email to you, and if necessary suggest they do a connection check from their end to help diagnose the problem.

DL-524 send mail


Hi,

Are normal network services available to you:-

1) can you ping a server on the Internet?
2) can you browse the Internet?
3) Is the problem only email, if so do you know which mail server you are trying to access?

You shouldnt need to open up any rules in the firewall for SMTP, unless you are hosting a mail server. When you request mail from behind the firewall, most firewalls allow through all traffic from the inside network to the Internet. therefore, if you can see the Internet this is usually a good indication that theres no internal filtering.

all your mail client does is create a connection to port 25 on the SMTP server. You can replicate this by doing :-

telnet <MAIL SERVER ADDRESS> 25

you should get a banner or something up if you can see it. I dont think its a router problem if all other services are woking ok. If you get a banner from the above command, then its definately not a router problem.

ta,

Sending emails


There are numerous ports used and methods to send and recieve e-mail my setup uses the pop / smtp method where I believe the default ports are 110 / 25 however my ISP uses two other ports. Routers with port filtering enabled may allow 110 and 25 by default but are unlikely to permit other ports chosen by your or my ISP. The riskier change is to disable all port filtering. The safer option would be to open the ports required by your ISP (as well as closing the default ports that are unused).

In order to achieve this we will need to determine the ports you utilize for e-mail.

We will need to be able to access the router for configuration with a web browser.

A second option is that your computer has a firewall blocking your e-mail ports. However if this were true your e-mail would never work. The process is similar to the router in that the required ports would need to be open or the e-mail program given permission to access the internet in your computer's firewall program.

This could be a lengthy process determining your e-mail client accessing the configuration to determine the ports used. Determining if the router and/or the internal firewall are the issue and making the appropriate changes to one or both as determined necessary. If you, your neighbor or a friend is knowledgeable in these areas it may be easier to have them assist than to do this over the web.

If you wish for me to attempt to assist further I need to know what your e-mail program is? Do you have a firewall or internet security / anti virus product on your computer? What is it's name? Please include the model number of your belkin router.

Installed Netgear but can't send e-mail


Ya have to "Open a Port" or "Port Foward" to allow your SMTP and POP3 services to communicate with the Server.. so find out what "Ports" ya need open and using the Admin interface change them to allow your emails to work. This info is generally found in the Manual of the router or online.. And OR your firewall hust be set to pass them on thru too..

No access to port 25 for wireless clients


What happens if you connect one of the wireless machines with an ethernet cable? Any chance you have a Firewall of AV program blocking port 25 on these machines? Have you tried Safe Mode With Networking? I'm sure you realize that is most often caused by the ISP blocking Port 25, but I assume they would have told you so if this was the case.
