Trouble posting replies

OK - here's a strange one for the experts out there.

Since I added a Netgear wireless router to my setup, I can no longer post in the forums. When I am using IE with my Bellsouth DSL connection, I type out my reply and hit send and the computer churns and churns for a minute or two and I get a "server cannot be found" error.

But if I open up an AOL session and use the AOL browser to post, it works just fine.

The only other site that does this is Yahoo. I can't access my Yahoo email from Bellsouth, but it works just fine with Bellsouth and AOL together.

I have changed nothing except the addition of the router between the DSL modem and my ethernet port. I am running XP and the latest verion of IE - firewall turned on or off makes no difference. I have been all thru the router config and Netgear's web site and can't find any mention of this problem.

Any thoughts?

Yes and yes. It sees me here and cookies are working. It's strange - I changed nothing but the addition of the router.

At least I can get here thru AOL - I just hate admitting publically that I still use it. :-)
