Hi, I have recently installed a network running on a few WMP54G PCI cards all connecting to a WRT54GL v1.1 router, which is also connected (via cable in one of the LAN ports) to a D-Link DSL modem. The clients are not too far away from the router (the closest is about 3-4 meters, and the furthest is around 15 meters). The problem i'm having is this: When I do a constant ping in the windows command line to either the router or the modem it averages 1ms, however every now and then it will shoot up to 1500ms for a single packet or perhaps even time out. Although this doesn't directly affect me, I was thinking it might be a cause to my real problem, which is that my windows dial-up pppoe connection to the internet drops very often, perhaps once every hour or so. I have asked for advice and read on the internet and what I have tried is the following: - Moving the router closer to the clients to try for a better signal and observed no change, the SNR is about 30-35 and the link is established at 54mbps. - Two different firmware versions (packaged firmware aswell as dd-wrt) - Switching channels (1, 6, 11, and everything inbetween) - Boosting the Xmit Power in intervals of 5mW starting at 10mW - If I connect to the router via cable, the connection to the internet is stable. I can't think right away of any other steps I might've taken to solve the problem, but if you need to ask something please do and I will try and answer any questions. I'll appreciate any help I can get because my faith in wireless nets is quickly degrading :| Thanks in advance!
