ssh being dropped

    Hello all,

    I have a wrt54gs v 1.1.
    I have this router supporting two 16 port linksys 10/100 switchs with about 10 users each who obtain DHCP and connect to the internet and our company domain.
    On another port I have a gigabit switch with five servers which serve our domain.

    I have a couple of users who do a lot of SSH and they are being continously disconnected. It seems to be random, but happens less often when traffic is less or when half of the users are at lunch or out to golf.

    This of course is driving me crazy! Can someone please clue me to what might be wrong???? I tried Linksys tech support and got nothing useful.

    Could it be that this particular routher which is often on sale has a firmware defect which cannot handle the load??? What gives?

    I have tried to use a five port switch and just two of the ssh users on the last port and yet they are still being dropped, but less often.

    Any help would be great..

    By changing the SSH port do you meen having the ssh guys come through just one port on the router?

    If so, then yes I have tried that and it has slowed it down but not entirely.

    Is there a setting or something that can direct ssh traffic to a specific port?

    I have this issue as well, (either telnet or ssh) when using the application putty for windows and we found one way to fix this was to enable an option to send null packets every 60 seconds to keep the session alive. I can now leave windows open for days if I wish.

    Depending on which version of putty (if you are using this application), the option can be found in the connections window (sending of null packets to keep session alive).
