I am having a very strange problem. I have been using this router for some time and all of a sudden it stopped connecting to some websites. For example i can get to google but not yahoo. I have checked the connection by directly linking the modem to the computer, no problems. I have updated the firmware on the router and reset to factory defaults and updated on the security stuff. Any ideas on what could fix this issue

Re: wrt54g with vista
You can try forwarding ports to secured sites like 443 and 80. There is a possibility that the ports have to be opened on the router. But if the same thing happens, you can try reloading the firmware and reset the router and reconfigure
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Did you turn off "transmit SSID" ? If you did this would prevent it from send id signal. You would have to connect on specifications. Know the specs in advance and connect anyway even if not "visible"
Or was it working and suddenly stopped? Transmitter may have died.
Have you tried restarting it? Power off / on
Last thing to do is to reset it. Wipes out all settings. Recessed button close to the power input, hold for ten secs.
Redo all settings.
Hope this helps .
If the wireless has stopped working, but wired can, either your wifi modem on your laptop needs to be reset or the wifi router has to be reset. Make sure you have restarted your laptop and unplugged the wifi router.
Locate at the router's management page the Basic Wireless settings. At this section locate the line displaying "wireless channel" and change it at any channel you like, your connected devices will auto locate the new channel and connect without any problem. This happens from time to time, especially when a strong wireless transmitter is (or comes) near the Wi-Fi area (maybe a wireless phone is your problem or something like that).
Take care that in case you make a change at another setting, your connected devices may not locate the new setting, so you will have to connect to the router using the ethernet connection in order to recover your problem.

Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.

Be mucho blessed,
Perhaps you might wanna try checking the IP address of the printer and see if it matches that of the ones that are mapped in each individual computer. There might be many factors in the "strange" events that have occured (PC gremlins, i call it). That should be an initial starting point.
Resetting the router wouldnt help, cause it is the router that issues different dynamic IP addresses (otherwise known as DHPC) to each and eveny node connected to the netwrok as well.
Another important thing to note is HOW these devices are connected to the router. Wirelessly? Wired connection? The fact that you can see the printer via the router means that there is no problem with the router's end, so the problem lies in the intermidiate connection from the computers to the router. Try to work on this angle. Thanks.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
