Hi guys! I recently purchased a WRT54Gv3 router. It came with the latest linksys firm released on 1/28/2005. I did some tests like transfering huge files between 2 wired computers. Lucky no problem at all. So i went on and flashed it to the latest 2.1b1g firm by Avenger. It was very stable until i get random timeouts while surfing. Then I did some tracert to some site and found out the first hop(router) was very unsual. I get higher than usual ping like 6ms, where it should be <1ms or 1ms and sometimes i get request timedouts. I then use "ping 192.168.1.1 -t", but it got worse, i was getting more and more random timeouts. Web interface cant be accessed, even if i can access it, it's REALLY SLOW. I didn't know what's wrong so i turned off my bittorrent program. And everything backed to normal. I reflashed it to 3.03.6 linksys firm and ran bt program with "ping 192.168.1.1 -t" in the background. No more timeout problems. Anyway i was using a beta firm so there suppose to be some bug(s). Hope the stable version(2.0) will not have this problem(im going to try it later). PS. Anyone have any idea why the firm i flashed has this date "Dec. 29, 2004" instead of "January 28, 2005" from my stock firm? My router is a Canadian model, but i flashed it with the firm from US site(apprently they only have one version of the firm).
