Router "Nice Load" 99%, instable, client bridge mode

    I have been using Tomato for a few months now (a long time DD-WRT convert).

    I have 1 router (WRT54GL v1.1) in "Ethernet bridge mode", but it is showing a system "nice" load of 99%. Also, the network connection is slow and unreliable and it won't stay connected for more than 1 hour before it loses its connection and has to be rebooted. It doesn't seem like memory is an issue (I have 5MB free).

    The only configuration options I have turned on are

    1. white LED
    2. client bridge mode
    3. SSH (turned off telnet)
    4. turned on "frame burst" and put afterburner on auto,
    5. set one antenna to send and the other to receive

    Note: I have another, same model router running in access point mode, and don't have any problem, even though it is running the same services + more.

    Any ideas on diagnosing this problem? (top doesn't show what process is using all of the "nice" processor load).

    Thanks in advance,
