Ok, well I recently installed the newest firmware version for my Linksys WTG54G router. I am directly connected to the router, and everything seemed to go off without a hitch. But an hour or two after I installed the Firmware, I tried to access my newsgroup server, but I couldn't connect to the server. I found this weird, as I've NEVER had a problem with it before. So later, my friends suggested we played iSketch at www.isketch.com I then tried to go to the website, and the status bar stays at "Waiting for www.isketch.net..." I also found this weird. By now, I've pretty much concluded that something is up with the new firmware, either it enabled something blocking this or installed wrong or something. Ok, well, I thought I could live without that. Then I tried www.suprnova.org. It seemed to be working fine....the advertisement banned on the side of the webpage opened, but then nothing else, and on the status bar it would say "Waiting for *whatever spyware/advertisement site was in the banned on the side of the site*" Well, now I'm pissed.

Also, I noticed that when I was on Newgrounds.com, and I open a page to a movie or game, it would say "waiting for *whatever advertisment banned was on the top of the page*" and to actually get to the movie or page I'd have to stop the loading and THEN click the link.

So, I'm pretty sure it's with the new firmware, but I don't really now how to pinpoint the problem...if none of you can figure it out, I guess I'll have to load the firmware all over again. :\
