    Hey I have a WRT54G V4 with DD-WRT V23 flashed to it and now I have 1 problem. I have 3 computers hooked up to it via wired ports and randomly throughout the day the router just stops working. I unplug it for a few seconds then plug it back in and all is fine again. Anyone else have this problem? If its just from DD-WRT firmware I might go back to stock linksys firmware ( I can do that right? ) Thanks.

    WRT54G v5

    I finally took my WRT54G Router :thumbdown: out of line and put back my BEFSR41 cable/dsl Router

    Now all of my computers work. I can hard wire my Lap top into the system also. The first problem I had was the walwart did not work, Had to use the one from the BEFSR41 So I'm going to send it back to Dell and ask for a refund. :thumbdown:

    I'm using a v23 SP1 version and I haven't had any issues.

    With the WRT54G you should probably turn on logging on the router and seeing if anything shows in there... Considering that there was a DHCP NACK-ing IP requests issue in the initial v23, you may want to even look at your PC's log -- but that would only have a relatively short disconnect from the network and not require a router reboot.

    You may also want to post the issue in the dd-wrt.com forum.

    Is this SP1 version you speak of the one that came out on the 25th?

    Re: WRT54G v5

    SP1 is still in beta - I'm currently using the Feb 3 beta. There were bugs in the Dec 25 (especially re DHCP) which I specifically updated to the SP1 betas for.

    They're under:

    Take a look at changelog.txt to see what has been changed -- there may be something there which was fixed which would hit you as the problem in your situation...

    Regarding the betas, certain days they make big strides with the betas, other days, for example, after they update a third party package used by DD-WRT, they introduce more bugs -- so you may want to wait a bit for things to be more stable. If you want to try a beta, it may be best to wait a day or so after the beta comes out, to prevent loading firmware which bricks peoples routers!

    I still say that turning on logging to see if there is anything obvious there, would be good to try. Considering one of the bugs listed, you may want to see if static DHCP helps. Again, disconnections could happen due to MANY causes...

    Personally, besides my own router, I'm "testing" a router for my brother... I don't plan on giving the router to him until SP1 is released (or at least my view of the bugtracker looks clean enough http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/bugtracker/main_page.php ).
