I'll try to make this long, dreary story as short as possible. I've had a WRT54G v3 for some time now. It always worked flawlessly with my Bellsouth DSL connection. I recently moved to another city where my only real option was Charter cable. Now, this wasn't a problem. At first. The v3 worked just fine. Until recently. I recently moved out of my mum's house and purchased a router for my new place. I had always had good luck with Linksys routers so I went and ordered the first WRT54G I could find. Big mistake. I got the infamous v5 because I didn't bother to research it. So now I'm on Charter cable and it randomly disconnects me at least two times a day and the router needs to be rebooted before I get my connection back. That's not the strange part though, as apparently this is a pretty common "feature" of the v5 router from what I'm reading. The strange part is, and I'm not proud to admit this, I surreptitiously swapped out my mum's v3 with my v5 (hey, she hardly uses the thing) and now it's doing the same thing! Will I win any son of the year awards? No. But I still need help. So now I've got my old v3 that's randomly disconnecting me as well. It has never done this, neither back home on Bellsouth nor at my new place with Charter cable. Oh, and the connection at my new place isn't the problem because her v3 is the one I used to test it after it was installed while I waited for my v5 to come in. Now, this is a wired connection, not wireless. I have only two computers sharing this connection. When it craps out, all of the lights stay on and continue flashing intermittently as if everything is fine. Everything, however, is not fine, as my connection is completely gone. I usually get a partially connected icon in the system tray, websites won't load, can't even get to the router config through a browser. Sometimes this happens on one computer and not the other. Sometimes it happens on both. Do I have a poltergeist or what? Is there a more stable firmware out there for the v3? I don't need any special features or anything, just what the Linksys firmware provides and, you know, a stable connection. Little help?
