Set myCDONTSMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

No, but all you need to do is allow relaying for localhost

IIS -> Expand [Server Name] -> Right-Click on Default SMTP Virtual Server -> Properties -> Access -> Relay -> Add -> 127.0.0.1 -> OK

CDONTS doesn't support authentication.  Did you try the solution I suggested?  The wireless router shouldn't make a difference, you just have to allow relaying for the IP address of the machine where the ASP files are located.  Unless the ASP files are on a different box than IIS, the IP address will be 127.0.0.1

IF you are using Win2k or above, You can use CDOSYS.. Which is much more flexible and efficient than CDONTS. Here's some sample code on how to configure SMTP server and the server authentication code.

<%
Dim objMsg
Dim objConfig

Set objMsg    = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set objConfig = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")


Dim objFields
Set objFields = objConfig.Fields

' Setup server information
objFields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver")       = "mysmtpserver.com"
objFields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport")   = 25
objFields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")        = 2

' Setup server login information if your server require it
objFields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
objFields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername")     = "SMTPAUTHUser"
objFields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword")     = "SMTPAUTHPassword"

objFields.Update

' Now you can setup message to send
Set objMsg.Configuration = objConfig
objMsg.To       = "tosomeone@somewhere.com"
objMsg.From     = "fromme@withlove.com"
objMsg.Subject  = "Hello"
objMsg.TextBody = "This is my test mail from CDOSYS"

objMsg.Send
%>

Hope this helps..

Cheers!!
