WRT54g + emule over wireless

    Well i want to know from all of wrt54g owners if this router can manage a wireless connection running eMule and/or torrents over it. I'm thinking in buying an wireless pci adapter for my pc but my question is: Will i get the same connection over wireless? Will wireless manage to keep all the connections eMule and torrents make?

    I need some advice about this. I still need some advice for a wireless pci adapter but i've asked that in another thread :)

    So, wrt54g owners, how this router acts with a emule over wireless? :D

    No problem with a WMP54G v2 using latest Broadcom drivers

    Works fine. But remember that the default concurrent connections limit on DD-WRT firmware is 512 (IIRC). The default for eMule is 300 or so.

    You do the math.

    Increasing WRT54G's limit to 1024 is a commonly accepted option. And running >1 emule per WAN connection, not wise.

    Let us know.

    thanks for the replies :D

    simax, i use hyperwrt 2.1b1 tofu10 and i suppose that the limit is the same as the DD-WRT.

    now, about increasing that limit to 1024, won't that change mess with the router performance? how do i change that limit? that might help me with a problem i have. I'm always disconnecting from servers but that only started happening almost a month ago. before that i've never had such problems.

    looks like i'll add this code
    echo 4096 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses
    echo 512 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/default/gc_thresh1
    echo 2048 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/default/gc_thresh2
    echo 4096 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/default/gc_thresh3
    echo "600 1800 120 60 120 120 10 60 30 120" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeouts
    to the startup script to see if it solves the problem like tofu says in the readme file.
