Linksys validating identity error

Once they receive the defective unit, the credit card hold will be cancelled. I went through the RMA process and am awaiting a replacement unit.

After dusting off and setting up my old Linksys wireless-B BEFW11S4 router, all was well again…

except for Outlook not being able to send out any emails!

After some quick research, it turns out that the BEFW11S4 has been well documented to have email send issues.

However, it didnt work, until I disconnected, turned the power off my Wi Fi, unchecked the tab in the authenticate dialog box, clicked ok, then switched the Wi Fi power back on, and reconnected.

I have a laptop with a Dell D630 with Wi Fi power switch on the side.

Two must do’s for this router to unblock Outlook sending emails are: After these settings, both Outlook 2003 (running under Windows XP) & Outlook 2007 (running under Windows Vista) were still not able to send emails out.
