    Have a WRT54G. PC is plugged into router. However when I download large files or email, process will stop.

    This did not happen with my old Dlink wire router!

    What info do you need to help me out.

    Did you see whether or not the router restarts (wireless network goes down and then back up again) causing the file transfer to fail?

    To know if you router restarted, keep an eye on the "uptime=XXX;" line on the "secret" sysinfo page of your router:

    My router seems to do it each time I attempt a large file transfer :cry: and it would be helpful to know if anyone else has the same problem.

    I checked the secret page. It displayed the following:

    Flash Type=Intel 28F320C3 2Mx16 BotB;
    Write Mac Address=00:12:17:13:FB:C8;

    get wl_gmode=1;

    totalram=14856192, freeram=5246976, bufferram=1671168;

    get eou_configured=1;
    get eou_key_index=0;

    That's interesting you are having the same problem. This is on my desktop, but when I tried the same download with my laptop, it was coming down fine, but I stopped it after it got 50% of the file (Java SD 1.5). On the desktop, it usually times out after approx 30 seconds.

    That tells us your router has been up for about nine hours. (33060 seconds ~ 9 hours)
    Following right after my wireless network has gone down-and-up, this counter is reset and starts over from zero. That way I can tell if it was my router that restarted itself or if it was solely my computers wifi card that caused the drop.

    Okay, then maybe it's not the same problem after all... Since it looks as if only your desktop has problems and not your laptop.
