    Hello.

    Please forgive me if this is resolved somewhere else, but a search didn't come up
    with anything, so..

    My router is a Linksys WRT54G v2 running Tomato 1.21 (stock firmware prior)
    My Modem is a Linksys BEFCMU10
    and my ISP is Comcast

    Since Comcast recent announcement of it's 'Limit' I decided I should track my
    usage more specifically. So I decided to Install Tomato on my WRT54G, as it seems
    like the best of all the available Firmware. So I installed Tomato v1.21, did an
    nvram wipe and rebooted all devices on my network, and it worked flawlessly...
    For 6-7 days.

    Then I lost the ability to access websites, IRC, P2P, etc. Ping and Tracert still
    worked, however, And my LAN access is not affected. The only way to restore
    website access is to flash back to the routers stock firmware

    The router was still getting an IP from Comcast.
    I did not slowly lose connectivity, it was very sudden. Like totally dead in 30s.
    I tried power cycling all involved devices (PCs, Router, modem).
    I tried resetting to default settings.
    Both Wired and Wireless devices were affected.
    I did not change any of Tomato's default settings except for the password.

    I am now back using the stock Linksys Firmware. But I would really like to use
    Tomato. It worked great for the time it did, and it has all the features I need.

    Any help/insight anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
