I had road runner (my first mistake) install a linksys wireless router for us a few days ago.  For some reason, it won't let me connect to gaming servers, or use a program called HLSW which sorts multiple servers and gives the ability to ping them.  It will only ping the first server i click on, nothing else.  When I try to join game servers (specifically counter-strike), i get an "Error! server verification failed" every single time and it won't let me connect.  That used to happen occassionaly, however no matter what it happens every time now.   I've gone into the router configuration and absolutely nothing is blocked.  I contacted road runner and they have no idea why it might be doing this.  Also, every minute or so the connection timeouts on the computer hooked up to the NIC .  I checked with some other people and they said that it was the 2.6 version of the adapter and that I should get the 2.5.  I tried downloading the newest drivers to see if that would remedy the situation, but the setup files don't work.  How might I go about fixing all this?
