    Hello there, I am having a MAJOR problem with my Linksys router. I have a WRT54G Wireless G router, and somehow have two networks on this router. I don't know how we got the second network but it is locked and I have no idea on how to delete it. I have done a factory reset on the router and a power pull and nothing is working. The reason I know that this other unknown network is ours is because when I unplugged it, the other network went away, but the main network that we use is still there. I dont know if it is my modem that is the other network, but it is starting to fusterate me. No matter what I do, the other network is still coming up and is locked. Any help would be great and would help a LOT. Thank you in advance for any information.

    Gee, it's been a loong time since my WRT54G v4 was my primary router. And then I found Tomato about v1.17 or so, so I kinda dis-remember the stock interface.
    But, if you have a ghost network you don't know about, I'd suggest that you check:
    1. If any of the devices on your network have UPnP enabled
    2. If UPnP is enabled on the router.
    If both of the above are true, you might have the ghost network. I found this out the hard way, even running Toastman's TomatoUSB firmware on my E3000. (My son had just put his new Win7 Pro/64 laptop on my network, and he had the plug and pray on from factory defaults. Fixed now!)
