I recently changed internet companies and bought a new modem/router. With my internet old company, I linked a modem (just modem) to a wireless router. With the new company, I did the same except with the new modem/router (ie, modem/router to the wireless router). While most internet sites worked, secure sites didn't (such as hotmail and program msn) and it kept on timing out. So I was wondering if anyone could help me with this.
(I tried dail up with the computer and hotmail worked, a computer was linked wired to the modem/router and hotmail worked, so I think it must have been the wireless router. But I used it before with my old ISP and it was fine.)
It sounds as though the two routers are not "mashing" together correctly. Mashing in this case mans working together. On your wireless router you might try the following: Seeing if there is an option to allow it to act as an access point (called AP or access point mode). Disabling the firewall on the wireless router to stop it from blocking the wired one.
