    Just installed DD-WRT #22 prefinal4 on my WRT54G V3.3, yesterday I setup PPPoE with STP enabled and after about 4 hours it has a reconection on the ADSL, then I set up without STP and now it been Uptime: 12:10:32 up 19:35, load average: 0.09, 0.03, 0.01.

    How to know for certainty if STP was the cause of drops/reconections, since other firmwares also has drops?

    maybe you could backup the router. then reset it (just to rule out all of the variables). and enable stp and see how long it is up. and disable it and see how long it is up.

    Well, just a moment ago it dropped the ADSL again. I never thought that Linksys has these problems, I just selled my 2Wire modem/router :cry:

    I enable RP PPPoE, will see how much time the ADSL line is connected, also if I enable "Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time" with any value the router never connects, only with "Keep Alive: Redial Period" option :evil:

    The Linksys router itself doesn't. Don't forget that you are using an experimental, modified version of the firmware here. If stability is an issue, you might want to either use the official Linksys firmware, or wait for a final release of DD-WRT.

    I recommend having a look at your modem, just in case. Make sure it doesn't loose sync. If it does, then you have a line issue.

    I noticed, however there are still some known issues that won't be fixed until v23 (like the Wifi performance). I think it should be stable enough to be used by the majority, however we shouldn't expect it to be already as fast and stable as the original Linksys one - DD-WRT is still very young, and will mature over time. Someone looking for the best stability and performance is probably better with the Linksys stock firmware for the time being, and the real stability of the WRT54G shouldn't be judged based on DD-WRT.

    STP is not for ADSL! is only for Cable broadband only so you need to disable it.
