This individual is not understanding what you are asking...because he has already answered your question.
He is using a WRT54G v7 router. The firmware version has been upgraded from v7.00.1 to v7.00.4.
GUEST: The version of the firmware is probably not your issue. Find out what TCP/UDP ports the game uses to connect and open those ports in the router. This is the only way to start when it comes to troubleshooting online games.
Also check for possible incompatibilities that your other network equipment may have with that particular router. It is a possibility, believe it or not. I've had a Linksys router that was incompatible with my cable modem in the past. (I was lucky that a simple firmware upgrade fixed that issue.)
Note: Linksys tech support isn't really all that great. Especially when it comes to getting specific software to work with their router. (i.e. They really DON'T know how to help you with specific software unless it's widely-used. We're talking about software like World of Warcraft. Myself have never heard of Gunz Online International.)
If you are needing further help, please give us a detailed, IN-ORDER description of your network equipment and how it is set up from point A to point B. What kind of internet connection are you using? What kind of device does your ISP give you for your internet, etc? Those kinds of things.
I'll check back later.

Apparently not, but I'm guessing you already knew that.
Look carefully at the label and the firmware installed in your router. The 1.02.5 is listed for 5 and 6 only and version 8 is for 8 only. There is no 7 listed, so it was either a special run or there is just no firmware upgrade for it yet. It must have been perfect :-)

SOURCE: Belkin N1 F5D8231-4 V3000
are you running the Cisco VPN client from home, where this Belkin is your gateway and connecting to say your work?
If so, have a look in the settings of the Belkin to see if you can enable VPN Pass-through.
Try disabling some of the firewall functions on the belkin to isolate the issue and turn the rest back on.
If for some reason this model doesn't work even after the above, try changing the VPN client's connection settings,there are only two to choose from... (click modify on your connection entry, go to the Transport tab > then choose from:
IPSec over TCP and IPSec over UDP (port 10000)
