Hi all,

Just got a Linksys WRT54G version 8 router.  Updated to latest firmware. For some reason port 22 shows open when checked online at Can I block that port by just changing some settings in the router? If so I couldn't figure out how after a lot of time trying. So for now have to continue using an older router Linksys BEFSR41 which shows the port closed at

I'ts new so I can still return it for a different router is another one would work better.

Thanks for any help.
