    I just bought from new egg
    WRT54GL v1.1 #CL7C
    CPU ModelBroadcom BCM5352 chip rev 0
    CPU Clock200 MHz

    Reset to defaults
    30 sec reset
    upgradedd Std version (not mini first)
    it had a liitle hickup getting back to the GUI and sat with power light flashing.
    30 sec reset again, seem to get to the GUI fine.

    Ran factory firmware for a while to get the feel of things. Policies I had set to block outbound port numbers each were working.
    Now with DD-WRT, what ever I put in any policy after number 1 does not work.

    Do I need to put these into the command screen some how in order to make them stick?
    I know nothing of IP tables, or how to use them to see if something is wrong.

    My BEFSR41 seemed to be slowing things down, so i got the WRT54gl for future when I get laptop.
    But for now all I need is blocking outbound ports and able to view in/out logs.

    I think I would rather be changing a tranny on my F350
    THAT I can see.

    Maybe I should have listen to my husband and just got another BEFs model, after 3 days and numerous attempts, and before I toss it back in the box.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    What exactly is your policy rule #1?

    Policy 1 (its name)
    Policy name: each policy has its own different name
    Status: ...enabled
    Pc's: ...Allow
    Edit pc's list: ....MAC addres and Ip for that MAC.
    Every day 24hrs
    Catch all P2P: checked
    then a list of the service port #'s I added to block out bound attempts on port number. random blocks of port #s so that if by some chance one pc were to get infected I would lessen the threat to spread more on the net.

    After I added to the edit/add Service list I noticed sometimes when I would click on "apply" or "close" that, instead of going to "filters.asp" on main page, it would go to "apply.cgi" and be a blank page. But that was after I had already added all the service port #'s I wanted to block.

    Is there certain things in IE that MUST be turned on? I have the options on for
    Run active-x and plugins
    Script activeX controls marked safe for scripting
    Scripting applets
    allow paste operations via script
    active scripting
    And my Java is up to date 1.6

    Do I really need all these to make changes, cause usually I keep them off.

    If you are talking what some code output is saying, I have no idea of how find that out.

    blocking by key word is pretty powerful though.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I personally use Firefox.
    If you don't have a rule #9, try creating one that blocks all internet access to everybody (ip - I must be #9.
