Question about D-Link DGL-4500 Wireless Router
My son just installed the D-Line wireless router and although I can link up to the internet, I can no longer send/receive email through Microsoft Outlook. Any idea what I need to do? Thanks, Debbie
Tell your son to change the MTU settings on the router, especially if you have DSL.
Changing MTU on router
Step 1. Log into your router by open your Internet browser (e.g. Internet Explorer), enter the IP address of your router (e.g. 192.168.0.1) and press Enter. Specify username (admin) and password to log into the router.
Step 2. Click on the Home tab and click on WAN on the left side.
Step 3. Look for the MTU field (note that it may not be available in some router models). The default MTU value is 1500, change it to lower number, e.g. 1200.
Step 4. Test your ability to connect to those specific sites youre having trouble with. If changing the MTU rate to 1200 does not resolve the problem, start lowering it in increments of ten until the problem is resolved (you may need to go as low as 600 depending on your DSL connection).
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
