    Hi, I have the MN-100 router connected to my cable modem
    and when my PC is connected to the router, I can access
    the internet normally except that Outlook cannot send
    mail... It complains as shown below... Note that if I
    attach to my PC directly to the cable modem I get a
    connection that works perfectly. My MN-100 firmware is
    up to date and I've disabled all security and firewall
    features that I am aware of.

    Outlook Error when connected to MN-100:

    Task 'shawmail - Sending' reported error
    (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a
    response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue
    to receive this message, contact your server
    administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

    Your outlook was depending on a setting that your ISP was sending to you
    via DHCP. Since the Mn-100 is doing the DHCP you will have to actually
    enter a fully qualified domain name for your SMTP server.
