    Just installed the replacement unit from Linksys and upgraded to the latest default firmware for the WRT54GL. Everything seems to work except outlook cannot connect send email ie. cannot connect to SMTP.

    I know this was a common issue with some of the older wireless B routers but has anyone ever run into this on the WRT units?

    Thanks for the tip. It tunrs out that ISP was blocking SMTP port 25 if you were not using their SMTP. Had to use an alternate SMTP port in Outlook and all things are well again. Hope this can help others.
