WRT54G being weird.

    I hope this is the right section.

    I am pretty new to the WRT54G, and already bricked and de-bricked it with Alchemy v1.0.

    I don't really know i thi is a known issue or..what is causing it. What happens is if I use all of my bandwidth for an extended mount of time the router sort of...fubars. Here is an example:

    Last night I was downloading a 2 CD distro of linux. I was downloading at roughly 310 k/sec which is pretty close to my max the line can take. That took while (maybe 40 minutes? I can't remember. I was tired) and so I left it to download over night. When I went on my computer this morning, I couldn't access the internet. I found it odd and naturally wanted to see the router status. But to my suprise, the router menu wouldn't pop up.

    But this has happened before, and would happen constantly on my older netgear router. So I reset the modem by unplugging it and plugging it back in. but by this time I didn't have time to test it so I ran off to work. So here I am, trying to access the internet via VNC and its not working.


    Now, I do have 2 ISPs, not plugged into the same router, but I have a PC that ties the two connections. So I can forward the port and connect to the computer I Was on today. But still the router menu won't load. It still is working though. I can connect to any PC on the router, I can ping other PCs,hell the PCs are resolving IPs...they just cannot connect to websites. I don't get it. Is this common?


    BTW it also happens after the router has been on and not reset for a few days sometimes.
