One day I tried to use WDS with a second router and HyoerWRT 2.1b1. It didn't work, and made my network impossible to reconnect to until I cloned my MAC address and did a power cycle (unplugged for 30 seconds). Ever since this day, every few days my wireless network cuts out and refuses to reconnect (even though my network card can see the network) until I unplug or reboot the router. I have tried 2 routers with 3 different firmwares on each (Linksys, HyerWRT, tomato) as well as 2 network cards with upgraded, and then rolled back drivers. Today, I switched the routers again and updated the firmware to try it again. When I upgraded the firmware, everything went lovely, including the message telling me that the firmware was successfully installed! It reboots and YAY! My router is ruined! I'M SO LUCKY! WTF IS GOING ON WITH THESE POS? Why do they never work? This is what the router with the f'd up firmware now does. I can get to 2 screens from which I can do nothing. (The ampersand (&) is a link to the second page) By the way my conneection still cuts out. 1 router is a GL v.1.0 and the other is a G v.2.0.
