I have a friend whom I'm trying to help get her PC working properly when connected to a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router she has recently installed.

Previously she didn't have a router, and her PC (which is running Vista) was connected directly to a Wired Country modem using a PPPoE connection.

I have got most things sorted, but there is one issue that is eluding me because I don't have Vista and hence cannot reproduce the problem she is describing:

1)  All Dial-up and other Network Connections have been deleted from her PC (on the advice of the iHUG support tech.) except for her Local Area Connection which uses a Realtek NIC (embedded on the motherboard).

2)  However, when starting up Windows Mail, it is still trying to use a non-existent connection (presumably the old one to Wired Country).

3)  I gave her instructions on how to fix this according to the settings used in Outlook Express.

4)  However, it seems as though Windows Mail is different in this regard, and I don't know the correct steps to give her from here.

If it had been up to me, I would not have suggested deleting all the connections until Windows Mail was configured correctly.  However, we are now caught between a rock and a hard place, so any advice will be very gratefully received.

Open Windows Mail and navigate in the menu to Tools->Connection

There is Internet Connection Settings and it says that it uses the connection settings as in Internet Explorer. There is a button Change which takes you to the IE connection settings. I believe that in IE its set to that Wired Country. Try changing somethings there

BTW, can you also ask her whether she can use Windows Live Mail ? It is really good Laughing

That's pretty much what I already told her because it's similar in XP, but we will go through it again and see if we missed something.

My friend is using Web Mail at present and it is working fine.  Thanks Chaks Smile
