    As described here I successfully pulled out the Wireless Card from my WRT54G v1.0 quite some time ago and it happily works in my wife's Notebook with a Dell Driver.

    Now I have occasion to use the "neutered" WRT54G as a switch, but while lan ports 3&4 Work OK, Lan Ports 1&2 are dead?

    Is this likely to be due to ripping out the Wireless Card, or is it just a dead router? The 5v power adapter unit is "OK", (it's been known to be a fault with this model) and while not great, still works.

    Any ideas on testing / fixing?

    Yeah, I'd prefer not to though, taking it out of the Notebook again will not please .... :)
