    Hi all,

    I'm using Version 1.06.0981 on my WRT54g V2 and I've got the following problem:

    The WRT is connectet to a D-Link DSL 380T and after this modem receives a new IP from ISP during the 24h-disconnect, the WRT stays with the old informations. Even if I press the renew button the WRT is not getting new informations, like IP adress. IT stays with status "renewing...". When I do a reboot, it is getting the informations and it seems, that's the only way to do it.

    Another thing is the Total / Free Memory; after a reboot it's up to '7,23-something' but after 24h it's down to '1,0-something'

    hlp plz :)

    yapp, down to 1024. and right now there are 304 in use.

    and the thing about the memory; right now (after an uptime of 12h) it's down to 2,048.00 KB.

    Ok, is it possible to do a workaround like using/writing a script to reboot the linksys every 24h? As I'm unable to do it on my own, could someone plz take this part and instruct me how/where to put this script - if it is possible at all...

    I use this script in my init:

    cru a reconnect "00 07 * * * killall -hup pppoecd"

    It reconnects my PPPoE connection everyday at 7:00 AM. Try something like this and see if it helps you. ;)

    What is this: D-Link DSL 380T I can't find on the dlink website...

    OK, thanks for replying :) Can someone set up a script, which pings a internet IP and if there is no response it restarts at least the dsl-port-connection or, if this is not possible, the whole router? And I need to know, how/where to place it...

    I've only found a german site for this modem:
    IT is an ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem (Annex B) which is used to connect to DSL. It's connected to my WRT on the DSL-port.
