WPC54GX won't connect to channel 6 and WRT54GX DMZ not work

    To start...my WPC54GX does not want to connect to channel 6. I have no idea why. It connects to every channel fine, but not channel 6 no matter what router, isp, whatever (even if theres just 1 router with its basic out of box settings). Then ever since the 1.02.06 firmware release the DMZ on the WRT54GX doesn't work. My laptop is on 192.168.1.100 and I've set the DMZ to that, but it acts as if the ports aren't even opened, but when I use the port forward it works (I also tried DMZ on and off when I did it too...no difference), but then I can't even use the same numbers on a different PC in the house . I wish I could use the same ports on a different ip, but you can't with this thing. Please spare some info!

    Some Useful Info:
    I have Windows XP Home SP2 Running on a Compaq Presario 2100 (about 1 1/2 years old). AMD Athlon XP-M 2800+ (2.12 Ghz) CPU with 512MB of RAM.

    Current Firmware/Driver versions of hardware.
    WPC54GX Driver Version is 1.5.0.86 (April 13th 05) Latest I think
    WRT54GX Firmware Version is 1.02.10 (December ? 05) I know for sure this is the Latest

    Anyways, would appreciate the help if anyone can figure this out. I'm just going to the buy WRT54GX4 and WPC54GX4 in a few weeks and see what happens, but untill then I'd like to see this thing work.

    BIG Thanks, Quicky
