Trouble With Tomato on Linksys WRT 54GL

    I just got my Linksys WRT 54GL and installed the Tomato 1.28 software. I've had a lot of trouble with my internet. I have to reset my router every day or every other day. It typically works fine right afterwards until the next day, but sometimes I need to reset it right away. I stuck with the default settings of the router, and have a WPA key so others cannot access it. My wife and I are both running Macs with the latest software and are the only ones connected to the router. Sometimes our mobile devices are being connected, but usually not doing anything with them if we are using the computer. I didn't know if the default settings needed to be configured, or maybe if there are troubleshooting methods I can do to see if I have a lemon router, wrong configurations, should try DD-WRT or something else. I was using a refurbished Linksys WRT 110 with no problems before this which is surprising since I used to have to reset that one once a day. I talked to ISP and they just gave me a new Motorola cable modem. I clicked on the view last 100 lines of the log from the Tomato admin pages if that helps. I do not know why the date shows Dec 31 either since they are from just 10 minutes ago when I had to reset the router twice.

    Flash your WRT54GL with Tomato again. Reset (clear nvram) immediately after flashing, then manually re-configure your router. At first, try running for several days only with basic setup. If you found it stable then start using advanced options one after another. I'm using the same model router with Tomato and it never hanged so far, not even a single time.
