    Hi guys. My girlfriend is using a WRT54G v4 with Thibor 15c.

    Her two roomates are both using a kind of P2P software (called Foxy, a Taiwan P2P software). The main problem of this P2p software is, it do not have a option to set it's upload limit and also do not have the option to set it's maximum connection. This really cause the trouble that the router hang within 5 minutes when they both are downloading things. I already set QoS to set their p2p software's port to the lowest priority, but there is no improvement.

    Sometimes the system load go up to 3.xx and I could hardly load into the router's page.

    What could I deal with it?

    Could I set it in thibor 15c? I couldn't find such function in QoS of thibor 15c

    Just found something interesting. I tried to set the maximum connection from 2048 to 4096, and then I could again use the internet without problem for 3-4 hours. But just now, the router die again. If I unplug the roomate's cable (who use the P2P) and reboot the router, internet come back. If I plug it back, it die within 30 seconds. So I asked her to terminate her program, then plug her cable back to the router, this time the router die in 2 minutes. I really don't know what is the problem...

    The problem I think is that even after she close the p2p software, there are still hundreds of ip trying to connect to her computer every minute, and eventually the network is saturated. If I renew my ip address, then I could run the internet for another 6-7 hours. After 6-7 hours, the network die again.
