SOURCE: 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.

Wireless Repeater Question


Well, it is not possible to configure wireless repeating between WRT160NL and WNDR3700 as WRT160NL does not support wireless repating feature (WDS).

Hope this answers your query.
