Go to the router Admin screen the Advanced Tab/DMZ Tab.
Enter in 192.168.1.254 but you would enter 254, since you cannot enter
the other nodes of the 192.168.1 IP because that part is protected on the
screen and it's implied that the other parts of the IP are 192.168.1.
Then press the Apply button. You will not find this information at the
Linksys site, because this is a *TIP* that was passed on to me as I am
passing it on to you to block the ports on the router that didn't pass
the Sygate test.

After you have done the DMZ thing above and checked the screen to make
sure it's holding by coming out of the router Admin screens (basically
logging out of the router) and logging back into the router and going
back to the DMZ screen to see that the 254 held on the screen, you can
then run the test at Sygate or any other testing site like PCFlank,
Gibson's test site and the router will now pass the tests.
I'll assume that you have changed the router's default factory password
to access the Admin setup on the router to something else. You can search
Google as well as the Linksys site for this information on *how to do
It don't take no rocket scientist to figure this stuff out! :)
