WRT54GX - Issue

    Hey guys,

    I recently had to upgrade my router as my other one died on me. I figured I might as well upgrade to the latest from Linksys so I went with the WRT54GX router. To say the least I am very pleased with it as far as speed performance and the extended wireless range. I am however having a problem when going to certain websites on the internet. Some work just great while others will just sit there and load forever and eventually just error by not finding the site. If I take my DSL modem and plug it directly into the PC it will then work just fine on all websites. I can only assume it is a setting within the router. So here is what I have and I hope someone can help me resolve this:

    Router: Linksys WRT54GX flashed to the latest firmware today 1.01.05.

    DSL Provider: BellSouth with a Westell modem. I set the modem up to be bridged in order to work correctly with the Linksys router. It is setup identical to the setup I had with my old Linksys and seems to work great for certain websites but others it will not find. The modem also has the latest flash.

    Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated

    I just wanted to update everyone that the problem has been solved. It turned out that the MTU needed to be adjusted.

    Thanks

    I have the same router and also BellSouth GSL, Some of my newgroups are not allowing me to post replies. What was your exact MTU change(number)?
    Thanks, Ross

    Thanks for the link to determining the MTU size. I had already guessed at 1400 and it seems to work. If I have further problems I will try the school solution. Thanks for your help.
