    I have owned the WRT54G for 3 or so years now and it has been perfect from day 1. It is a version 2 with the latest firmware installed. About 2 weeks ago i woke up to find that i had no internet. so after seeing that it worked threw the modem I power cycled the router. still no connection. so i finally just reset the router and I got the internet back. This was all fine and good for a couple days then it happened again.

    So I figured it was a firmware issue. I then re flashed the firmware and reset the router. Now it was up and running for about 5 days trouble free. but then it started happening again.

    this time i just did a DHCP release/renew and the connection was back. so im thinking its some kind of DHCP issue. The only Odd pattern ive noticed is that its fine all day. and then later in the night I will disconnect.

    Im truly lost. I want to say its the router and just buy a new one but idk. because it almost seems like the laptop upstairs is connected to the issue. because the net works fine until my mom gets off of the laptop and then it goes out. other than that it has been going out for 20-50 seconds a couple times a day randomly. im so confused
