Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 slows down after a day

    Running Victek's Tomato RAF 1.25.8515.2 ND. My connection is a 30/5 connection.

    Normally I get 32Mbps down - after a day I get stuck at 24Mbps. A reboot of the router lets me get full 32Mbps down again.

    I tried updating to just regular Tomato 1.28 as well and had the same problem. Any ideas?

    Thinking of trying Teddybear's Tomato or maybe DD-WRT.

    Hey,
    I am using DD-Wrt, With a BiQuad antenna, And I loose my download speed every 1
    or 2 days,and I have to do a 30-30-30-hard reset, and rest all my settings to make it a repeater, Then my speed comes back, but only for a few days, then it's reset time, I tried Tomato, but couldn't get the settings right for it to work with BiQuad....

    @SL83
    Your wan speeds may be beyond the hardware capabilities. What are your cpu usage values, the amount of free memory, and the # of active connection states.
    Seriously consider a faster Tomato router w/ 500+ Mhz CPU.

    @poolman
    Repeaters, I've found to be unreliable under dd-wrt, and openwrt (when I tried it). Memory leak??... Anyhow, just buy an extra router...and avoid the vap mess..

    I'm thinking of the ASUS RT-N16.

    Time Wed, 11 Aug 2010 15:29:51 -0400
    Uptime 0 days, 00:08:46
    CPU Load (1 / 5 / 15 mins) 0.03 / 0.03 / 0.00
    Total / Free Memory 14.14 MB / 7,980.00 KB (55.13%)
    CPU Frequency (MHz) 200

    172 connections currently tracked


    This is right after a reboot giving me ~34Mbps down and 4.95 Mbps up.

    Before the reboot - I had 313 connections tracked - and 7MB of RAM free. CPU Load was nominal.

    Just loaded latest DD-WRT for WHR-HP-G54. I hate the interface compared to Victek's Tomato - but we'll see how it fares tomorrow.

    Well, DD-WRT fixed my problem.


    Uptime: 1 day, 21:35

    No slowdown, whatsoever.

    VAB Tomato :( til we meet again.
