Hi all,
I have tried, and tried agian... I have a Netcore 2505NR Broadband Router.
My computer is a brand new Intel 2.8GHz P4, my computer has the power but it just seems to not want to make this hookup work for me. I've had the whole thing working fine, as long as I don't try to use the e-mail (Outlook Express 6). My wife has a Intel P2 434 MHz, also with XP Pro. I had to disable Outlook on her machine, just to try to get mine to operate properly, but no go... each time the e-mail tries to connect, it says server not found. Yet if I disconnect from the router and run directly into the LAN card on the computer, not a problem at all. Oh and when I'm trying to download new mail from Outlook, it tell me POP and SMTP cannot be found? This router was indeed a cheapy, at only $35.00 Canadian, would a good brand name Router cause me no troubles..? My Internet Provider is "Rogers", do they need to be informed that I'm using this Router in order for it to work?
It's getting rather frustrating... it's been about a week and a half and I can't figure this dang thing out. I promised my wife that her computer would have internet....arrrrrrgh !!!!!

Help me, someone?

Someone in your previous thread on this did suggest contacting Rogers.

On another point: seeing as your email works until the router is put in the loop it couldn't be, could it, that the router is blocking the POP and SMTP ports (110 and 25 respectively)? It seems unlikely the factory default would be to block these but it might be worth a look.
