I'm having problems with email sending thru this linksys wireless router. I'm getting internet connection. But when I send out email, no connection. The pop3 account settings are correct. I had the same problem with email also when I used a hub.

There's something about this pop3 email account.

Typically with any ROUTER, you need to make sure the PORTS are turned on for what you are trying to access.

Here are some typical port numbers:

FTP 21TCP
Telnet 23 TCP
SMTP 25 TCP
HTTP 80 TCP
POP3 110 TCP
HTTPS (secure) 443 TCP
IRC 194 TCP
ICQ 5190 TCP, (note: ICQ by default will use this port to connect, and any available port above 1024 to listen for new connections. This is kind of insecure, so I would recommend going to the ICQ site and reading their firewall configuration info
AOL messenger 5190, 4099 TCP (also will self configure to available ports)
Yahoo IM (self configures)
MSN messenger 6891-6900 TCP for file transfer, 6901 TCP/UDP for voice (otherwise self configures messaging)
Kazaa 1214 TCP (can be reconfigured within Kazaa)
Games** For various multiplayer games, check the websites for specifics.


If you have a WEIRD POP3 mail setting or PORT number defined, then your going to have to configure your router to pass the port number for POP3 access. By default, 110 should be turned on out of the box on a router, unless it got changed. If you don't know for sure, do a factory reset on our router, and verfiy the port number your e-mail software is using to checking mail....
