wlan keeps dropping out & not sure why

    running a WRT54G v2.2 just flashed to ddwrt ver22.
    Every time I through a LOT of bandwidth at it (using VNC into my desktop via wireless) the wlan just flat drops & after a few seconds it will restart itself.

    Is this normal behavior? Anything that I can look at that might be causing it?
    I did move from channel 6 to 10, that seemed to speed things up a bit, but didnt solve the problem of the wlan dropping off.

    suggestions anyone?

    yeah....... uhhhhhhhhh its not just when I throw a lot of bandwidth at it... its pretty much whenever.

    this time the whole thing just reset while I just happened to be looking at the router.

    I called linksys & they say its hardware.
    I love the fact that they suggest using 3rd party software & then once you say you have they say you cant RMA it now.........
    slick guys......... real slick :thumbdown:

    Did you try reflashing the latest Linksys to see if you drop?

    i think this has something to do with the old well know throughput issue was would cause any large amount of data to crash the router. I'm not sure if the dd-wrt v22 uses the later firmwares which solves the problem by overclocking the router to 216Mhz from 200.

    There was a variable you could modify in nvram to do this, but I forget. Or you could also try the later builds such as dd-wrtv23b
