Hi, all in the title really, Today I have set up wireless network. Belkin router. WinXP pro on a pent4 as the main PC.4pc`s in all one wired and 3 wireless. I can get internet easily enough but I cant send Email unless I connect the cable and use my old connections. I would think this is just something in the settings but it has beaten me so if anyone can help please I would appreciate it.

Hi

Try this - Open your e-mail client Go Tools Accounts Select an account and select Properties. There should be a tab labelled CONNECTION. I used to set this to use any available connection or you can select "always use the specified connection" Experiment with these settings and see if that solves the issue.
