which firmware and router are you using now a days? I'm having some major issues with my WRT54G v3 =/ Alchemy (1.0 and pre7) gave me issues - it wouldn't pull an IP address from my modem, and would sit there with no connection. I had it working for about 2 days before it dies. The QoS did seem to work pretty good on it though for the little while that it did work. I do have a hard time dropping $20 to sveasoft for their new firmware if I can't even confirm that its going to work first. I have been using DD-WRT 3.2, but tht seens to drop my connection every hour or so. The major issue with it is the QoS - whenever its enabled, and start running bittorrent, it slows my router down to a crawl (even if only 20k/10k a sec of traffic is going). I have a hard time even logging into it then. Needless to say, the QoS doesn't work properly when it can't even process the simple data its downloading. I was very carefull, and setup a minimum rule list for this. I also tried new firmware, resets, blah blah blah. I also tried out hyperwrt, but the QoS in it is lacking, and didn't give me any performance increase at all. Looking for suggestions, or possible solutions.
