Hotmail and SMTP Problems


having problems connecting to hotmail when I put my username and password in. Says "cannot find page" I also cannot send outgoing mail through my SMTP using "" but can receive.

My pc is connected to a Netgear DG834G via a network cable. Everything was working fine with my standard ADSL modem attached to my PC.

Thanks in advance for any help.


Hotmail and SMTP Problems

It could be 2 things one being DNS which means it cant find the ip of the pages and relay. Try setting the mail to and see if that lets you send mail. If it does then you have a dns problem.

The other thing is that ist timing out does it allways happen or do you sometimes get to hotmail etc? It could be a problem with spyware changing the host file or causing problems. It allways worth checking for virus/spyware
