Seshu ,

I got the problem..!! There is a value for MTU bytes to be specified..The default in netgear was 1500 and I checked on the site that it is diff from diff providers..For Dataone the MTU is 1492 and so i changed the MTU in the router to 1492..and it started working fine..there is some loss which is due to wirless..but i can get through everything on the net...( earlier MSN live msngr , hotmail , photos.yahoo used to NOT work !!!)


Thanks..
