Hi, everyone, great forum. I have a problem with my WRT54G (v3) that I've been trying to track down for months now without success. Well, the problem is probably not even the router, but I'm posting here since there's obviously a lot of smart cookies around . Here's my situation. My router has two PCs connected to the wired LAN ports and two connected via wireless. One of the wired PCs runs Windows XP, the other PCs all run Mandriva Linux. One of the Mandriva machines runs a web and mail server, the rest are just used for regular internet-surfing duty. I also have a D-Link DVG-1120 VOIP router that came with my Primus TalkBroadband service, which is sometimes connected via a wired LAN port: in case it was causing the problem, I disconnected it entirely last night to test, but the problem persisted. When the D-Link is connected, I use the DHCP server on the router; when it's not connected, I turn it off (all the other machines are configured with static IPs). The router is 192.168.2.1, the PCs are 192.168.2.2, 192.168.2.3, 192.168.2.6 and 192.168.2.7. The router is in wireless-G only mode and uses WPA-PSK encryption. I have a few ports forwarded, but am using no other advanced functionality. I had this problem with the previous router (an SMC), the WRT54G running the latest stock firmware, and also running dd-wrt latest stable version (v23), which I installed last night to see if it would help. The actual _problem_ is thus. Some time after turning on - could be hours, could be as long as a couple of days - we notice internet browsing become extremely sluggish. If, at this point, one attempts to ping any internet site or the router itself, one will experience packet loss around 50% or more. _However_, pinging any other machine on the network results in 0% packet loss, and indeed doing any actual network operation to other machines on the network (ssh, scp, whatever) is perfectly fast - it's only talking to the router itself or the internet that is affected. The symptoms were more or less identical with both routers. _However_, the problem did _not_ always happen with the previous router - the network was fine for several months then suddenly the problem started. I've tried to think what may have changed around the same time as the problem started, but I just can't come up with anything; my last guess was the VOIP box, but obviously, that wasn't it. Does anyone have any guesses at all as to what the problem might be? It's driving me insane having to power cycle the router then restart the network on both wireless machines twice a day. Thanks!
