WRT54G v4 Frequent Disconnections

    Hi all,

    Ever since getting my Linksys WRT54G v4 back in October 2005, I've had these annoying disconnections (I was using the latest official firmware, 4.20.7). Every 10-30 minutes, my wired desktop computer would just suddenly lose access to the Internet. For example, I'm browsing a forum, and I'm reading the posts and topics and clicking links. After 10-30 minutes, I click a link, and the browser can't display the next page. The same disconnection issue goes for my downloads/torrents/AIM. I believe this problem to be associated with DHCP or DNS, because once I type in "ipconfig /registerdns" in a command prompt (or right-click the connection taskbar tray icon and click repair), the connection eventually reconnects. However, this isn't the case with my downloads and torrents, since I'm not there to repair the connection. It would download for several minutes, then disconnect, wasting the time I kept the computer on! I've checked, double-checked, and triple-checked my settings, and even reformatted my computer in December, but all of it in vain; the disconnections still continue. Then, after reformatting, I tried DD-WRT v23 Final. However, the same disconnections still occurred! I get pissed off by my router a lot, so I just unplug it and connect directly to my DSL modem, which allows my Internet to work flawlessly. The disconnections occur whether or not my wireless computer is in use. So, does anyone have a suggestion? If you need more information, I'll be glad to give more. And oh yeah, I tried searching these forums for such a topic, but there were just too many topics which didn't seem to correspond to my problem... Well, thank you in advance, and sorry for such a long post.

    It's unbelievable how my router is performing. Even in the middle of loading a web page, the router will disconnect. When disconnected, I can't even ping the router. But stranglely, opening up AOL Instant Messenger and signing in seems to "repair" the connection. WHAT'S GOING ON? I just need some advice, so I can either get the router to work or trash it.
