I have a linksys router, and comcast as my service provider. I used to be able to log in, make changes, and then save them. Now whenever I try to save my changes, such as opening up a port, I can hit "apply" all day, but as soon as I navigate away from the page it goes back to how it was. It doesn't matter what I try to change. Even things like password changes won't save. I recently changed the computer that the router is attached to, if that makes any difference. I have 2 other computers connected wirelessly as well.

I would really appreciate any help you could give me. Talking with comcast over the phone is pure [bleep].

Some router interfaces only work correctly with Internet Explorer. If you're using any other browser, try IE and see how it goes.
Do the other computers work correctly?

You, sir, are an absolute genius. That worked like a charm. I hate IE, so I never use it.

Good deal.
Another thing I've run into is that my router won't accept the Enter key to submit the changes. I have to click the Submit button. Those two quirks just about killed me. :)
