Hello everyone, Im new here but nealy 7000 e-mule movies kinda says Im not much of a nube. But Im pretty sure im a baad boy. :cheering: Ok, now to buisness. I researched and decided to upgrade a wrt54g ver 1ish router to the stable 2.0 of the hyperwrt. It upgraded smoothly and I got very noticable increase in signal strength. Yea baby. :clap: Now I can run the mule from this router and get a pretty fast data stream thru the wireless. Problem is when data speed gets over 50kB/s and this link is good for over 150kB/s, the data both ways completely stops for 5-10 seconds after 45-60 seconds of data has come in. It has been doing this all night no mater what power I have the transmitter cranked to. I also found the nifty start up script in these forums for cleaning out old mule connections but that hasnt helped either. This firmware is suposed to be good for 4000 connections but my mule is only got about 150 connections open so I cant be pushing any limits. My Dlink wireless G card connects to Netgear routers without this stop cycling and the same goes with a Blizz G router. You think maybe this ver 1ish router is just anemic for this particular firmware? Or am I just missing something. Everything is default except the port forwarding and the start up script I found here. If it didn't keep interupting like it does, this thing would be DLing like a bat out of hell! I hope you can help. :cry: Well during the pause not all data both ways stops, when I expand the DU meter graph I can see small little packets being sent to the router probly the wnic saying "wake up router, where did you go". Then after 5-10 seconds like a light switch bam, mule data comes pouring in for the next short interval. I cant see my pc having anything to do with this problem since its flawless with other routers.
