    Hey, So i've had the WRT54G v5 for about a month or two now with no problems, until now. Wireless suddenly stopped working although all wired connections (this PC, and the xbox) connected just fine. So I spent about an hour trying to get it to work trying everything I could think of, until finally I just decided to put it in DMZ, and now wireless works. Now I don't plan on keeping DMZ on forever has anyone else experienced simliar problems or know anyway around keeping it on DMZ?

    EDIT: I have about 20 bottles of Bawls, the energy drink, practically surrounding the router, could this have any effect. They're made of glass with aluminum Caps.

    when not behind the DMZ, what are you getting for IP/DNS/Gateway? valid numbers?? im assuming you are getting connected to the router. Did you get static numbers set in your devices TCP/IP properties? that would make it look like it was connected and happy but it wouldnt actually work

    Yea, I was getting valid numbers, and my desktop was Static, but the other devices weren't. So I tried making some of them static too, but that didn't work either.
