Freeform: Hi, I have a really annoying problem with my WRT54Gv4 router. Over wireless connection, I get "dips", "lag spikes", "black holes" - Call it whatever you want. When this happens, I do not "loose connection" - I still have the actual connection, and no network applications "disconnect". This problem is especially annoying when I play online games (In counter-strike, the lag spikes seem to be timed perfectly to the exact moment I see an enemy for the first time in any given round, rendering me defenceless, and thus effectively aiding my enemy in fragging me). Also, this problem annoys me greatly when I connect remotely to my FreeBSD server via SSH. The problem is noticeable by the very annoyng symptom of no data either reaching me or being transmitted to the server. As I type faster than I can think, I tend to get concious about my remote administration every time this happens and screw up everything on my server. Description: Once every 60 seconds, the data transmit rate of my connection dips to 0kbps. This problem occurs regardless of network load. Some pictures and a ping log might help explain the problem further. Troubleshooting: I have tried everything. 1. Tweaking absolutely all wireless settings, both on my recieving end, and on the routers end. Fail! 2. Emailing Linksys Support. They suggested changing SSID and/or channel. Fail! 3. Chatting with Linksys Support. They asked me whether I did this and did that, etc. After 2 hours of "Yeah, I've already done that. Didnt work" and "Yeah, I've taken that into account. This doesnt apply to my situation", the linksys support techie finally offered to replace my router. He asked me where I bought it, and whether I still had the reciept. After telling him where I bought it, and that I had misplaced my reciept, he stopped responding for a long time and then finally hung up on me. Despite what I had expected - I did not get a chat log sent to my email. Fail! 4. Upgrade firmware to latest version. Fail! 5. Replace firmware with alternative (DD-WRT v23b2). Fail! Final words: A quick google for the keywords "wrt54g ~lag ~spike" reveals that other users have the same problem. The purpose of this topic is to determine whether other users of the wrt54g router have the same problem, and whether this problem is restricted to the v4 of the hardware. Also, my troubleshooting efforts have lead me to think that the problem is either with the hardware of the wrt54g router, or with the wireless reciever (I use a WUSB54G v4). If you have a WRT54G router, please take a few minutes to determine if you have the same problem as me, and maybe even post a ping log/screenshot of some sort. Also, please describe the version of the router, and what you use to recieve the wireless signal. Thank you all in advance.
