Linksys Router Cableone POP3 email not being delivered
Posted on 2004-10-01
I have identical setups at work and home:
-Cableone broadband (different accounts)
-Linksys modem - BEFCMU10
-Linksys WAP Router - BEFW11S4 V.2 (home) and BEFW11S4 (work)
-The routers have the same default gateway and DNS - different IP address and subnet mask (255.255.255.0 vs. 255.255.254.0)
-I cannot ping my website from either location
-Same hostexcellence hosting account
Two days ago my work internet email stopped working at work. I tried everything - mutliple calls to ISP and hosting etc. I can still get my POP3 email at home but not at work. Work gives me the "POP3 server not found". I connected my computer directly to the modem and it still did not work. I set up a laptop with the one of the email accounts and it did not work at work. Took it home and it worked - downloaded my mail. I am stumped. My next move will be to take the modem and router from home and see if they work at work.
I am running an exchange 5.5 mailbox at work as well as Win2000 server. Just a few point to point pcs at home.
Any ideas what is going on other than a bad moedm or router?
