    A very specific issue, I can't seem to find any evidence of other people having this problem online.

    The problem started a few weeks ago. When connected to the internet using a wireless connection, there are several things I am unable to do:

    -Download/send emails on Outlook (I receive an error message:
    Task '*****@*****.com - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC0D) : 'Cannot find the e-mail server. Verify the server information in your account properties.')
    -Connect to game servers (namely Tibia)
    -Connect to online webcam servers e.g. chatroulette.

    Connecting to webpages etc. is no problem at all. I'm assuming these issues are all related.

    When I'm connected to the internet using a cable, I AM able to access these services. The problem only occurs when using a wireless connection. I have the same issue at home and at work.

    I'm guessing the issue lies within my connection settings? This problem seemed to appear out of thin air, I don't recall changing any settings in my computer.

    Some help would be much appreciated (I'm a tech noob, so might need instructions for dummies :))
