How do I get my wireless router to let attachments through?

I have a Netgear MR814v2 wireless router and it doesn't let attatchements through email. If we check email from the laptop they get deleted as though they were viruses. I have logged on to http://192.168.0.1/ but can't seem to see where I tell it to allow images etc. through.

Thanks,
DAC

are you sure its your router?
could be the email client stopping it ... maybe a firewall, or a spam control program ...

Could also be a cable/DSL modem setting. Verizon had set the defalt packet size on my modem to 1500, when it needed to be 1492. I needed to fix because I could view webmail but attachments wouldnt download and froze up the system. Once I set the packet size to 1492 it worked fine. Might be some similar setting.

well, I'm not sure it's the router. I just read somewhere that these wireless routers will do that. If it was my modem wouldn't it block these attachements on my desktop (which is hardlined into the wireless router)?

I looked at the outlook express settings on the laptop and don't see where they would be blocking, but might have missed it.

The newest version of Outlook Express blocks virtually all attachments by default, jult like my Outlook 2000 SP3 does. Maybe you recently updated your OE?

Here's some info on it...
