ics with pop3

I have a wirless network at home ( a nightmare).
On my main pc ( with adsl card in it and main conexant device ) i have no problems and use outlook to my pop3 account 'charlie@colsons.plus.com'. Using exactly the same setting on my laptop doing test connection the pop3 login to plus fails.

PS. everything else works and no firewalls are present, presumably the plusnet server expects the main ip address assigned by you and not 192.168.0.3 as per my laptop (using ics).

Any help appreciated

PS I have raised a ticket for this but thought someone may have had same problem.

First off the ip 192.168.0.3 isnt transmitted onto the internet as its private.

Can you surf ok from the second pc?

Try setting outlook with the pop3 set as 212.159.10.1 and see if it work with that, if it does then you may not have thedns set on the second pc(laptop).

You say it fails but but you dont say how it fails? We need a ipconfig /all of the laptop and what o/s are you using?
