access Exchange over a wireless router

By takara ·
At my home office I connect via VPN to our corporate network. When I am hardwired to the router I can access everything including my Exchange mailbox. However, when I am connected over wireless, I can still access my corporate LAN but I cannot get access to my Exchange Mailbox. I get a dialogue window telling me Outlook is retrieving data and it takes forever and eventually times out. Anyone have a solution? Is there something I have to configure on the router?

Perhaps a problem with host name resolution? Try using WINS.

When you connect to the wireless router try disabling the NIC which was hardwired to the router prior to using your wireless NIC. Powered down your router, then powered it back on.

Here is a suggestion. I had the same problem. Everything checked out just fine. all connections, all settings were double checked and found to be just fine.
Eventually, I decided to delete any WINS entries for my laptop. Then created a static entry for the same computer. It is now working just fine. What I beleive was the problem, not all of the necessary WINS entries had been created originally. The one that I was missing was the Messenger 03h. Once this was created, Outlook and Exchange worked just fine. You might want to double check your WINS table and see if you have 3 or more entries for your laptip IP.

Best of Luck
