i urgently need your help
apparantly there is a bug in WAG160Nv2 firmware (version:V2.00.20 which is the latest). we had problem connecting to an outside smtp server using telnet. then out of frustration i reset the router to factory settings. then suddenly connecting to smtp server on port 25 was not a problem. then a few hours later, without doing any special changes to the settings, it's now again not possible to telnet to external server. apparantly something prevents outbound connections to port 25 to be established
thanks in advance

i'm ashamed to say that, apparantly there is no such bug. my ISP was blocking the outbound 25 port.
i case someone else had the same problem, this might help figure out the problem. check with your ISP.
