Hello everyone, I am new here. I recently bought two Linksys WRT54GLs and loaded Tomato (version 1.11.1217) onto both. On the ground floor, I have one of the GLs set up as a router, and it's plugged into the cable modem. On the second floor, I have the other GL set up as an access point. They are connected with WDS. I set it up as described here. I am using channel 11 on both units. Security is WPA personal, TKIP. SSID is the same on both. About once every two days, the WDS connection between the two is dropping out. If I go to the ground floor and restart the router, the connection is re-established for the next two days. I say that the WDS is dropping out because I can access the setup page of the access point from a computer plugged into the access point via ethernet cable, but I can't get to the router's setup page. Connection to the internet is gone. However, on a laptop that is only using wireless, I can still get onto the internet. I am guessing that the laptop is picking up the wireless signal from the router and not the AP. I have no idea why this is happening. I know a decent bit about networking, but I am by no means an expert. Right now, I've set up the router to reboot at 4 AM every day, hoping to prevent this, but I just did that so I have no idea if it will work. What could cause this? Interference from another wireless network (maybe from a neighbor)? Or is some sort of lease expiring somewhere? I really have no idea. I did search for this problem but most of the problems others seemed to be having was the wireless dropping out. With me, I believe it is the WDS, for the reasons I stated above, although I could be wrong. Again, not an expert. So, does anyone have any ideas for me? Thanks!
