    Hi - I have a WRT54GS with Firmware Version: v3.37.2 loaded. I have a desktop hardwired into the back of this and use a laptop wirelessly.

    I have had no problems at all with this until this week. I could not access the internet so I switched off my modem and router. On switching back on I have the follwoing problems.

    1. I am unable to conect to using my wireless laptop. When I try to repair I get the message that it cannot connect. I have the router set-up so that it does not broadcast the ssid. If I enable this I can see my router in the list of available routers but it says that it is an unsecured wireless network even though I have WPA security setup.

    2. I use edonkey p2p software on my desktop. This now gives me a an unreachable staus when connecting via the router but is ok if I connect directly to the modem. The port forwarding is still set-up correctly for this application.

    I have tried resetting to the factory default settings, powering off/on and then re-importing my backup config but with no success.

    Does anyone know if I can try anything else or does it sound like my router is knackered?
