Re: DGN2200v3:



The "E-Mail Notification" functionality of my newly-purchased DGN2200v3 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router does not work. I have tried everything I can think of but to no avail.
- I have tried the SMTP addresses for both Gmail and Hotmail (smtp.gmail.com and smtp.live.com, respectively) along with my email address ("Send to This E-mail Address") and email address/password for the authentication settings.
- I have checked and double-checked the authentication settings and they are correct.
- The router is unable to send email notifications to either of the above accounts.
- I have all three checkboxes checked for "Send Alert Immediately", and since I appear to be receiving DoS attacks every few minutes from various IP addresses the router keeps attempting to send emails, which subsequently fail.
- The following entries can be found in the logs (excluding other events):
[email failed] Cannot send mail to *******@hotmail.com, Tuesday, February 03,2015 14:59:47
[email failed] Cannot send mail to *******@hotmail.com, Tuesday, February 03,2015 14:58:37
[email failed] Cannot send mail to *******@hotmail.com, Tuesday, February 03,2015 14:55:54
[email failed] Cannot send mail to *******@hotmail.com, Tuesday, February 03,2015 14:50:38

...where *******@hotmail.com is the obfuscated email address.

Firmware Version V1.1.00.24_1.00.24
GUI Language Version V1.0.1.1

I have upgraded to the latest firmware version and rebooted the router several times, but nothing seems to work.

Please advise.

Hello Jimixter,

You may have to configure port forwarding or port trigger. The port on your side maybe closed.


I hope this links helps.

Re: DGN2200v3: E-Mail Notification" functionality not working

Thank you for your reply. I have reviewed the Port Forwarding/Triggering sections in NETGEAR genie. How would you recommend I configure this?
