Strange problem with two WRT54GS via WDS

    since this morning I have a strange problem with my two WRT54GS. I hope anyone can help me!
    I've configured my WLAN a few weeks before with the following configuration:

    --------------------------- <WLAN>
    DSL-Modem <cable> WRT54GS1 <cable> PC1
    --------------------------- <WLAN>

    Till yesterday evening everything works fine!
    This morning I try to connect to any Router per WLAN and there is nothing. I didn't change any configuration ore something like this.
    I was investigating the problem and found out the following:
    I put all my equipment in one room ->
    Notebook 1 and 2 are not able to connect to Router 1 (DHCP Server) per WLAN. PC1 is connected to Router 1 per Ethernet and is reachable. I checked configuration of Router 1 and 2 and nothing was changed.
    The Notebooks are scanning and sometimes they find the WLAN for half a minute (with 100% signal strength and link quality!) then loose it again. After a few minutes they find it again and loose it again. Later on they find nothing more...

    I have WDS enabled with the satori firmware and changed the Xmit Power to 60mW. I also tried it now with default factory setting of 28mW but it didn't help.

    I don't know what to do anymore. I'm definetly at the end with my small knowledge...

    Please HELP me!!!!

    Nobody any idea?

    After setting Xmit to 28mW (standard) again it works for a few hours. But yesterday evening everything was down again...
