    Hi there.. .

    sorry all im new...

    i am trying to telnet into my router. i have a wrt54g with stock ver 3

    if i use telnet and my gateway address from cmd i get a message...

    connecting to could not open connection to the host, on port 23: connect failed.

    the router is connected directly to a windows xp machine

    im trying to set a static arp address so hopefully my ps3 will stop having an auto wake problem.

    any help is appreciated

    The standard Linksys firmware does not have a telnetd. You will need to install pretty much any of the custom firmwares to gain access to the telnetd.

    also static ARP is really rarely needed, I have doubts that it will fix anything.
