AOL and Belkin queries..

  leemarkadams 15:58 31 Dec 2005

Hello all, i have been using AOL with a belkin wireless router and belkin wirelss PCMCIA car and can connect to the internet, however it will not let me access everything, for example I can not get into my Ebay details, but can browse ebay.

Any ideas as to why this may be so. (I have tried the network with encryption and without/ with and without firewalls!) Someone must have an idea?

The other problem concerns Internet Explorer, I can use it on my laptop and PDA to access some sites, but not all, any reasons why this could be?

Thanks in advance

Have a look in your router's Setup pages and see if there is a setting for MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit). If there is, try setting it to 1400, which is a very low value specific to AOL.
