My Netgear router died the other day (due to my cat -- long story) and I had been reading for some time about how hackable the WRT54 series is and decided to pick one up -- before checking out this site. Unfortunately I ended up with the v5 and all its limitations. I'm having a few problems, but the most irritating is that I cannot idle from work while logged into my machine at home through SSH. After about 10 minutes the connection is dropped; I'm running the latest firmware (1.00.9) which claims to have resolved this issue. Local SSH sessions last for days however. I've tested this from two different locations, and it did not happen with my Netgear router previously. Also, though I haven't tested this thoroughly, it seems that remote SSH sessions made from behind the router also eventually disconnect while idle. Secondly, and not incredibly major, I noticed that if I use Yahoo's Mac Messenger client I'm disconnected after maybe 5 minutes; this does not happen when using Adium (a multi-protocol client for Macs based on libgaim). Also, I'm no longer able to send files over AIM to iChat users, despite forwarding all appropriate ports. Any ideas? If these two issues could be worked out I might appreciate the router a bit more, even though the lack of statc DHCP addresses like my Netgear router was a big letdown.
