hi all

ok this ones been keeping me up an night...bigtime

Im an IT support for a small company, we have a super simple setup here, an ADSL modem/router thats feed into a switch and all our clients are hardwired in,...all works well

sounds simple right?

..problem is my boss wanted to put in a new wireless adsl router as the prev one was only Ethernet capable.

now with the wireless ones out emails wont send from outlook, sounds bizarre but i can confirm this. i have reset both routers to default settings etc...updated firmwares.

all mail settings are correct as well.
browsing the net is fine and i can ping etc..all fine

this is almost driving me nuts,

so is there any setting i need to enable on the new wireless router?

, everything is stock standard.

any help would be welcome

also i can confirm its not a virus/ malware issue

Would have been nice, if you had posted make and model of the wireless router in question.

And how about switching back to the previous router, just for testing? Does it work?

✔ Best Answer
Put the original router back in place and make sure everything is working properly.

Once that's done, lets turn your new router into a Wireless Access Point. (To be honest, your boss should have just bought a WAP).

For instructions on how to add the second router, click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second Router to your LAN

You'll want to use the scenario where you interconnect the routers "LAN port to LAN port". Since you've already got DHCP running on the original router, disable it on the wireless one. Do configure your wireless network on the wireless router and you should be good to go.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
