Default Outlook won't receive POP email with Vista

I was using Outlook to pull in POP email with Vista, and it was working OK, but then last week the account stopped working to RECEIVE emails, but it will still SEND emails. I tried deleting the account and setting it up again- didn't work. The "test account settings" works, but it won't download new email. It says that there is a time out error b/c it couldn't contact the server.

I set it up on another computer running XP and everything works fine. I read somewhere it could be the Linksys router, so I plugged the cable line directly in the computer, but that didn't help either.

I've been reading postings all over the web that people are having this problem, but I can't find a good fix suggestion! Can anyone help????
