    OK guys. Here is my problem. I am using DHCP with the above listed
    hardware. When I try to access my company's email (MS Exchange) I can't. I
    can connect to the company network but not to my email.

    I notice that if I take the Netgear router out of the loop and connect
    directly to the cable modem, I can access the email. So I think the problem
    is with the router configuration.

    I tried opening inbound port 25 (SNMP) but that don't work. Nothing I have
    tried will allow me to access my email while the router is in the loop.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? Using Charter High Speed Internet.

    Thanks, and much appreciated.

    I have resolved the issues. On the Rules page of the Netgear web
    configuration, the "Drop Fragmented IP Packets" option box was checked.
    After I unchecked it, everything started working as it should.

    Oh well. I will chalk this one up as cockpit error. I promise you I don't
    remember ever checking that box!!! Could it have been checked by default?

    Thanks for all your help.
