What was the last fully functional version for AP?

Hey All,
I'm taking a poll.

What was the last really great version for Access Points!

I'm using v3.30 but it's not as good as some earlier versions.

What is your favorite flavor?

Dude blocks internet traffic on server - Why???

We set Dude to run on a XP server and after Dude loads we can no longer access internet sites.
The server has two NICS - one on the inside of the network and one external.

Any ideas??

Hey jcremin,
Thanks for the reply.
My towers are all over 100feet.
I'm in a rural area - although there are cell towers occasionally.
I'm using 18dbi yagis and XR9's - still no connections over 5mile.
Any ideas?
