Hello

I have just set up a wireless router (Linkskys), although I can connect and browse I can't sign in to Yahoo Messenger or update my AVG Anti-virus.
Yahoo gives me the usual choices but none of them allow me to sign in, AVG says there is no connection to the internet when there is!

I have no software Firewall installed and no XP SP2.

Can anyone help me?

It sounds like you need to open up some more ports on the router. If you can connect and browse, that means port 80 is open (http). But downloads may require ftp (21 and 22), and instant messenging will use other ports.
