    Hi !
    I own these 2 routers and I have the same problem. When wifi connection is used, it hangs.
    I'm trying version 4.00.5US for wrt54g but I didn't find anything for wrt54gx. Do you know if any fixed firmware is out and if this problem is known ?

    Once using WEP, WRT54G is getting more and more unstable

    If I am nost using any wireless security everything works ok.
    - Firmware Version: v3.03.6
    - disable SSID broadcast
    - port range forwarding
    (and al the rest to default)

    Activating WEP then strange things are happening:
    - DHCP sometimes is giving a wrong IP address (192.168.71.x , when 71 is not in my range..)
    - the laptop (Asus M6000R) sometimes cannot connect at all
    - I'm using some port forwarding rules so that HTTP request from outside to go to a server from inside the network. This, suddenly doesn't work.

    To make it work I have to reset it (30secs..) then to restore a previous backup.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.
