View Full Version : Can't access Hotmail or Microsoft sites with wireless LAN

26-06-2004, 11:09 PM
Just bought a new Belkin F5D6050 USB Wireless network adaptor, which itself works fine.
It talks to the other PC here perfectly.
The problems start when I try to access certain websites.
The majority of sites I can access no problems at all, but I can't get into Hotmail, or many of the other MS sites.
When I try to access Hotmail, it gets to the point where it says "Website found, waiting for reply" and that's about all that happens, until it times out.
I did some brief searching about this problem and ended up downloading a program called Dr. TCP to enable me to set the MTU to 1485 - a suggestion made by someone who'd had a similar but not identical issue.

Unfortunately I'm no further ahead even after this.

The host computer is connected to the net via Woosh.

My computer connects to the host via this Belkin adapter.

What wireless network doe the host have or are you using an access point?
Are you using Internet Connection Sharing?
