    Hello! I've had a Linksys network setup since about August of last year. Immediately put HyperWRT on the router and everything was perfect and fine.

    Around December, we wanted to give Static DHCP a try, so we upgraded to Sveasoft's firmware. After the upgrade, all wireless clients would drop signal every now and then. This went on for about a month until we couldn't take it, so we put the HyperWRT back on the router. The wireless signal continued to drop frequently.

    Things I had done to try and fix this issue:
    -Replaced the WRT54G with a brand new one.
    -Replaced WMP54G v4 wireless card with a brand new one
    -Formatted computer WMP54G is on. Twice.
    -Tried every channel from 1-11

    I have just about given up with what to do. I have replaced all networking hardware and completely formatted my PC. Also, the firmware on the new WRT is stock firmware 3.03.01. No firmware modifications have been made since purchasing the new router.

    So what could be the problem? How can I figure out whats causing this? It's driving my insane! I even mounted the router to the wall much closer to my PC so it would get a better signal, doesn't help. Is there a program I can run to see why this is happening? Thanks in advance!

    I have this problem with my router, no matter what firmware it seems. It also does it for Wired for me also, as it will lose the DHCP desgination, which is weird. Right now i am trying a couple things like raising the max connections, or lowering it. It might be a bug introduced in the newest linksys firmware, which most things are based off of
