    I have this brand new WRT54GS. Im also using a brand new desktop (HP 1.8 ghz) machine right out of the box. I also have an older laptop that uses the wireless connection with no problems at all. But my desktop that is pluged into the router is having wierd problems. I have somewhat of a connection. I can ping, resolve host names, and view websites. But cannot, log into aim, irc, telnet, use torrents, or play games such as World of Warcraft.

    I updated the firmware (WRT54GSv5_v1_50) but that did nothing. If anyone has had similar problems like this, please help me out.

    I realized that the problem with this was due to a bad factory install for norton internet security. I uninstalled, and was able to use all protocols.
