email password authentication

I just installed a Belkin wireless router and NIC. Everything seems be up and running just fine. The only problem I'm having is checking my email from my ISP. Since going wireless, my password doesn't seem to accepted/authenticated by my ISP's POP3 mail server. Has anyone else run into this problem after installing a wireless setup?

Since POP3 is an unencrypted transport, perhaps some spammer has sniffed your password off the air and changed it.

Have you been paying attention to your link traffic? Does it seem a bit high?

Or, maybe your Belkin is blocking port 110.
