WRT160Nv3 Wireless connection drops constantly

    Hi everyone,

    I flashed my WRT160N v3 to Tomato firmware 2 days ago, and I am loving it!
    I did it according the steps to this thread - http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showthread.php?t=64908&highlight=WRT160n

    However, there is one serious issue as the router wireless connection drops constantly, sometimes in 5 minutes, sometimes in 30 minutes. After a minute or so, the wireless signal would come back automatically.

    A little more info on my setup, I have set the channel to 11 already, using WAP2 TKIP/AES encryption. I have a macbook, two iphones, a HP desktop and a ASUS desktop connecting to the wireless, and 3 desktop connecting to the ethernet port. During the drop of the wireless, the 3 desktops would work fine without any interruption. It's like the whole wireless signal is dropped, and every single wirelessly connected devices would be kicked out. I looked at the log, but could not find any specific problem.

    The several drop is something I do not understand, but it does not necessary appear on every connection drop. My router does not have this connection drop issue prior my flashed to the tomato firmware.

    Basic Qos is in placed, and an access restriction has been set to block all UDP port of a specific computer. I have tried to lift the Qos and Access Restriction, but the wireless connection would still drop, so I guess it's nothing related to the Qos and Access restriction. I have researched the forum, and found out maybe it's the problem of the Intel 2200B/G card. I did not have this card, but I did the command line in telnet suggested in that thread nonetheless. However, it doesn't help neither.

    A little more info for people that could help me out:
    Wireless network mode: Auto
    Channel: 11
    Width: 40hz
    Control Sideband: Upper
    Noise measured: -99dBm
    MTU:1500
    Beacon Interval: 100

    Every setting in advanced is set to default anyway. I am still exploring the tomato firmware. However, I could not resolve this issue for 2 days, and so I am seeking for help.

    Thanks!

    Which version of tomato are you using? Have you done the nvram resets since flashing? Have you tried re-flashing? I just got 2 in myself, and both are working flawlessly using tomato-K26-1.28.9050MIPSR2-beta20-Std.rar.

    Make sure its not the basic things by going over what you've done and repeating the steps to ensure something isn't stuck in there.
