Web Connection Dying With UDP Broadcast

    Hi Everyone,
    I have a WRT54G v3 with the latest Linksys firmware and a WRT54G v1 with the WiFiBox v2 firmware. I am using this setup with a program I created that sends out uncompressed audio data over UDP Broadcast (to It works fine for about the first minute or so, but then the connection to the Internet will die, but local traffic will still work (i.e. the audio program, network file shares, etc.) Also, the wireless functionality will die (i.e. no connection to the network whatsoever). Even though this is uncompressed audio data, its only about 3% of 100Mbit network usage, so I don't think that's the problem. If I make direct connections to each computer and transfer the audio data, everything works fine and the connection to the Internet still works.

    Does the router think it might be some kind of UDP Broadcast DoS attack? Any ideas for what might be happening?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
