Are you using the same ISP
as you did before the router? When you say configured for a dialup, what do you mean?
If you are using Internet Explorer, you can change how it tries to connect to the internet. Since Outlook Express shares how you connect, the settings will effect how it sends/receives mail. Open IE, go to tools, internet options. Click on the connections tab and select never dial a connection. Be sure to select apply before you close. Try OE again and see if it works.
how to configure Outlook Express for a Netgear router
I am using the same ISP BTyahoo!broadband.I have tried doing what you asked without success.IE connects without any problems,I would imagine it is something simple that is beyond me.At the moment I am swapping my connection between two machines one using the router and the desktop using the broadband modem to get my emails .I wonder if I should delete the broadband modem and use the settings for LAN ,whatever they should be. Thanks for your help.regards John
Configure Netgear Router for Outlook Express.
Are you using WinXP and Windows IE? Do you have instructions from Yahoo-Broadband to configure settings?

BB and OE
* What is the full OE error message ?
* Are you able to connect to other web sites other than your ISP's ?
* Do you use a firewall, e.g. Zone Alarm ?
* Does your ISP has different mail servers specially or Broad Band access ?
configuring Netgear router for outlook express
Hi papa Echo,
The error message is "error 8002801c accessing the OLE registry"
/iis help/common/500-100.asp line17
IP add 169.254.196.23
The IP address and submask above is not for the router.
My IE works ok on various sites including BtYahoo!(My ISP) I have ticked the box to stop the dial up software working for Outlook Express .I Don't use a software firewall only the routers,I have stopped the XP firewall.
I am not sure about the Servers for broadband.Thanks for your help John
correct your mail server
this is a bit obscure but try this:
select TOOLS -> ACCOUNTS... ->
There should be an account called "mail"
select this and click "Properties"
then click "Servers" tab at the top
if your "incoming mail" just says "mail" then you need to change it to something like
or something else
the exact address is probably similar to you ISP's home page just with "mail." in frount of it.
i realise that this post is a bit blurry in that matter but see if this sets you on the right track.
Thank you for your help,unfortunately it didnt work but I will keep on trying as it must be something like that. Many Thanks John
You are not alone?
yes I am having similar probs: switched to BT Broadband but am trying to use my old mail accounts on wanadoo, recieving mail ok but the smtp (send) is stopped by the firewall hmmmmmm.
Will post here if I find out anything of use.
Incoming/Outgoing mail server for router
First of all please let me assure that I am no expert!! But I have recently had a similar problem with a Netgear 8134 modem/router and Virgin.net broadband.
Instead of putting in something like mail.virgin.net for POP and SMTP open a MSDOS dialog box from Start-Programs-Accessories-Command Prompt and type after the prompt
or ping wannado.net
or whatever your ISP/Pop box 'Supplier' is. Note that you might have to do this twice if they are different. Make a note of the number that comes back (in the first sentance) and type this into the relevent box for your incoming or outgoing mail server.
It basically is the direct address as I think the modem/router is working like a server.... or something like that
HOpe this helps!
