I am an absolute newbee when it comes to networking...
I am using a 256 Kbps broadband connection from Hathway (ISP). If I directly plug the cable to my laptop/Pc w/ all configurations then I am able to successfully connect to a remote XP server in the US using terminal services.
But strangely if I connect the ISP's cable to the Netgear router which in turn is connected to a switch and then try to access the XP server thru terminal services it just doesn't connect. Gives a "Network Error" msg.
Similarly when using my mail client if my emails have attachments they just dont go, but it works fine if the ISP cable is directly plugged into a pc/laptop.
I am pretty sure it has something to do w/ the netgear configuration, and have looked into every aspect of it. But unfortunately couldn't figure out where the problem could be....
Any idea? I'd really appreciate it if anybody could solve this problem asap.
