First off I am on an Asus wl520gu running the usb version of v1.23. I don't even know what to call this but my connection seems to "pause" during long downloads. Everytime I'm watching hulu it will pause in random points. Bandwidth also drops off during downloads (like downloading ubuntu ISO). I have done speedtests and my bandwidth seems fine (2572kb/s / 515kb/s) so I don't see where I should have pausing or drops or anything like that. I didn't see this when I was on DDWRT or the original firmware. It very well could be an ISP issue... but I was wondering if anyone here had any thoughts/ideas. I dont know if this helps here is a graph that was generated while I was watching Hulu. Each circle represents where the connection lagged and hulu stopped playback and had to buffer. Just a thought... would QoS help at all?
