Well the best way I have seen is to start manual. See if the router log
shows the connection. Most routers either log or show current connections or
both. Check that. Then with a desk top computer, resolve someone like google
who has a simple first page. Then use the IP address of Google instead of This will tell you if the problem is your DNS settings.
Either way, let us know how this works. I use a 2100 wirelessly and also an
Emate wirelessly with a D-Link DIR 625. Works great. I also use Email, I
love it. Again, thanks Simon! But I went through a lot of the growing pains
you are when I first had to figure it out.

Should also note that I can't get Courier to work -- it goes through a
similar routine of apparently connecting to the router, then not being
able to resolve anything.

More troubling still, I think, is that I get the very same behaviour
regardless of WEP security settings. That is, if WEP is switched on
from the router and I *don't* enter a password in the card setup, the
performance is identical. so I think I'm not quite getting through to
the router.
