    Changelog looks promising, can anyone test it out and see if it fixes the disconnection problems a lot of people are having?


    16.01.2005:
    0000170 WRT54G or GS hangs when (mtd erase nvram) then (reboot) from a telnet session
    0000602 PPTP Internet connections drop due to ipables rules
    0000301 WOL in WebGUI is out of Work
    0000610 v23SP1: Rflow interface: web interface is broken
    dhcpc client interval fixes (connect now faster in client mode)
    dhcpc lease update fixes (does not disconnect on lease update anymore)
    wOL patch by Pierre Belanger implemented who finally got it to work


    Here is the link

    I'm refering to all the problems people are having with (including me before I switched to Tofu12) with losing connections and DHCP trouble

    Okay, let me be more specific.

    Which *kind* of connection is being lost? WAN connection? P2P connections? DHCP?

    I only ask because I don't see anything much in latest ChangeLog. Except the udhcpc stuff which connects to DHCP-client used for WAN side I believe. So this should not affect any changes on LAN side.

    Personally I had an issue with DHCPd on LAN would quit working after a day or so. Went away when I switched to dnsmasq.

    If you don't want to type details again, just link some threads of other posts.

    whwn I use dnsmasq, none of the connected machines show up on the client list. Is this a known problem?

    Have your clients done a renew? I just checked my table, and my laptop does show up.

    I find dnsmasq handy because it registers the DHCP hostname into it's lookup table. So my laptop comes up and registers x22, now any other device on the network can ping or access it by the name instead of IP.

    I have just switched to running DD-WRT SP1-beta dated Jan 16 2006.

    So will see how stable it is and post back.

    I rebooted all my machines, so I am sure they must have performed a renew..
    I am having too many issues with WDS. I have disabled DHCP server on the repeater and have also assigned it an IP 192.168.1.2
    I have disabled loopback on both routers. I have enabled WDS watchdog on both routers.
    I can log into the web interface of my repeater at anytime with no problems, but trying to log into the web interface of my main router is another story. I keep losing connection all the time and my internet has become real flaky. I can telnet into the main router though!
    I dont know what else to do...

    the_jaguar, let's back up a step here.

    Are you new to all this? If so, we may have a setup issue not a firmware issue.

    the_jaguar Network Guru Member

    Yes, I am new to this. But, I have studied this extensively, but I am not a 100% sure if it is a setup issue... I will send you a PM to discuss more details.

    Thanks a bunch for helping out..

    I would recommend to start a new thread, and lay out:

    1) What you want to do
    2) Your current setup

    Several people could then have a look over your problem, instead of just me. I'm going to bed soon most likely.

    Vincent:
    I'm now back to the firmware of linksys because of disconnects on the wan connection. It was since i'm using dd-wrt, and even the final v23 had disconnects every standard 4 hours.
    It isn't the modem (i've changed with another one what i got from my ISP to test the line), so i've had reflashed it to linksys, and all problems are gone.
    It has something to do with TTL according to the thread of Flexy (will add this later, can't find it atm).

    edit: the thread can be found @ http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=12151

    Sjowhan,

    Next time turn on syslog, and go look at /var/log/messages file.

    Probably there will be useful information in there.

    Sjowhan Network Guru Member

    Useful information in there, hmm maybe i'll upgrade it again to dd-wrt, i really miss the snmp and advanced options of QoS..
    It's just so weird that i'll get every standard 4 hour a 'ping timeout' on a stable (100 or 1000Mbit, don't know) ircserver, when flashing back to linksysfirmware the problem is gone?

    That was the only reason to flash it back :cry:

    Cookies and filters

    I just posted this on dd-wrt.com as well..

    Just a heads up, if you install the January 16 v23 SP1 beta. By default,
    under:
    http://w.x.y.z/Firewall.asp

    The additional filters are all set ON by default. As a result, I was unable to access websites which require cookies for login, such as linksysinfo.org .
    As I had previously read the bugtracker report about this - I turned off the filters and all is fine.
