Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
Have TCW connection on the PC, and installed Netgear WGT624 to get internet/mail access on laptop. After hours on the phone with Netgear, it worked. But I played with my email settings trying unsuccessfully to set up exchange server. Now can't remember the preference settings from before, so can't send e-mails from laptop (but can receive). It's a MacBook OSX. (This e-mail is coming from the PC.) Thanks for your help

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..

Tips for a great answer:
My wireless connection is not working and i cannot log on to it, I have connected a Netgear WGT624 V3 Wireless Router to my Motorola SurfBoard SB5101E Modem which is connected to Telewest Cable Broadband (internet works fine if i access directly through the modem), on the router the power light is lit and also the internet light flashes rapidly but the wireless light comes on for a couple of
seconds and then goes out - i think this is the problem? I have tried logging on to the router to check the wireless settings but cannot access it, i have also tried connecting directly via LAN but cannot get this to work either although i am not sure if i have connected it correctly?
Any ideas/comments/advice is very much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance,
