Hi, I have a wireless (802.11g) network installed at my home where 3 windows XP clients connect to a wireless router (Acting as an AP). They are roughly 1 meter to 20 meters away. The clients have Linksys WMP54g PCI cards installed and the router is a Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 running (currently) OpenWRT Freifunk firmware. My problem is the following: I do ping requests from the client to either the AP or other clients and I get intermittant timeouts (packet loss). After I installed OpenWRT White Russian rc5, things seemed to work fine except the fact that every 60 seconds there was a lagged packet. After attempting to fix this, I must've changed settings and now i'm sitting with intermittant packet loss again (although the timed 60 second laggy packet is fixed after installing proper linksys software). I followed the same steps as I did before and still havn't got rid of the packet loss. Firmwares i've tried is the following: Standard Linksys, DD-WRT, OpenWRT White Russian RC5, OpenWRT Freifunk, HyperWRT Thibor 15c. All of them give me the same problem. Here's a list of things i've tried to eliminate the options to what may cause this packet loss: - Set the router to run on channels 1, 6 and 11 aswell as those inbetween. - Switched between b-mode only, g-mode only and default (b/g mixed) - Altered the txpwr starting at 15mW and going up to 60mW - Took everything to another house in another area where the only constants were one client and the router. - Limited the rate to 6mbps (apparently if the rate is on auto and clients switch rate theres a high probability of a lost packet) Another interesting thing I noted was that if I pinged the clients from the router, there was no packet loss. I am lost for ideas at this point in time if anyone can come up with suggestions I will really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
