Connection Problems

  Stoneywood 12:32 22 Sep 2009

My WIN98SE desktop accesses AOL broadband, using IE6, through a Netgear DG834G-3ALUKS Wireless ASDL Router and RJ45 cable.
My wife has an Acer laptop, running XP and IE8, “wirelessly”, from the same router.

Speed is generally OK, but for the last two weeks we have both experienced "cannot find server" messages on favorite sites, on a regular basis.
Also, Outlook Express will not connect to server and we have to abandon tasks.

Can anyone help?

Regards David.

I don’t use AOL but I do remember an issue with the MTU (maximum transmission unit), which was solved by setting it to 1400 in the router settings.

It worth checking your setting.

Whoops, it should read "It's worth checking your setting.".
