    Hi,

    I just bought a WRT54GS wireless router which I hace hardwire to my PC.

    I loaded Sveasoft's Satori V4 firmware ( which seems to be working great!) and then I noticed that after having adjsuted some of the settings my OutLook 2003 POP3 mail can no longer see the incoming or outgoing mail server! I have not put any specific settings into the firewall although it IS enabled. ( it was enabled after loading the firmware and I was able to get mail) But I was hoping that one of you here might know what I might have toggled that would keep outlook from working so that I might UN-toggle it!

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    For starters, list the things that do work...

    Like, does your PC get an IP address?
    Is the default gateway correct?
    Do you have the DNS servers(s) configured?
    Can you reach the internet with your browser?

    If you can answer Yes to all 4 questions, then ping your ISP's email server, eg ping mail.isp.com. It's also quite possible that your mail server (co-incidently) is down, so don't panic.

    Cheers...
