Rogers Email with a Linksys Router

Anyone had problems sending/receiving email with a linksys router. I get the usual error that it cannot find the incoming and outgoing mail servers. I can surf and such fine and running the modem directly to my pc does correct the problem so it does appear to lie with the router. Any suggestions my brain hurts from other related tech issues today and i can't think of anything else at this point tonight atleast.

yea i can help u out..
configure the mail servers as;
pop.bloor.phub.net.cable.rogers.com
smtp.bloor.phub.net.cable.rogers.com

its not rogers' fault
ur computer isnt using rogers' dns servers because of ur router...so pop isnt a valid adress.
i actually had the same problem just now when i was reading ur post... because i just moved my cable modem to the other room and my computer goes thru the other computer to reach the internet

Depending on your email program, you might have to include the full path to the mail server...

If you go to the linksys home page and check the knowledge base (do a search for email and router) (the link is kinda long, or else I would have posted it for you). They can provide you with a sample....

its not the email program.. its the dns server he uses
the router also acts as a dhcp server and gives the computers ip's and dns server adresses
the ip's are in the 192.168.0.x subnet and the dhcp is 192.168.0.1 (the router) not the one asigned by rogers...
nico if u want u could try and configure ur settings not to use the routers dhcp...
u could put in ur ip as 192.168.0.2 and the gateway as 192.168.0.1 and for ur dns use rogers' dns server's ip...that way u could just put in pop instead of the full path
