Lost newsgroup access with wireless network

  Pinelea 14:12 21 Aug 2006

I've just installed a Belkin ADSL modem/router, and Belkin USB network adapters.

All is well, but I can no longer download contents from my selected newgroups.E-mails and browsing are generally fine, and newsgroups work fine on the remote laptop. What am I missing, please?

It might be down to port blocking...

Find out what port or ports the newsgroup messages require (different to e-mail I would imagine) and then open 'em up in the firewall. Let me know if you need a step-by-step for the Belkin firewall, but if you check the PDF, you'll get the gist of it.

Thanks for the advice and offer of help.

Was too busy to do anything about it at the time. The other day, with an idle fifteen seconds to spare, I clicked on "News", and - lo & behold - eveything's fine!
