[WRT54GL] Connection Problems

    Hey everyone

    I'm using WRT54GL with Tomato 1.27

    My problem is, that when I use P2P or it sometimes also happens when I'm downloading with maximum bandwith with firefox, I lose my connection with some applications!

    It is rather weird, no one in my network says he lost the connection...

    And the most confusing thing is, the connection loss is only for about 5-10 seconds, then everything is working normal again! Windows doesn't say anything about the LAN-Connection, it is as if everything is normal!

    To the disconnects, even though they are about 5-10 seconds, I lose my connection to the Battle.Net. There is always no way that I remain in Battle.Net and I lost the connection (even though timeout is at 45 seconds...)

    To summarize:
    - 5-10 sec. disconnects by using P2P/high traffic/sometimes without both
    - Still connection to the router
    - The only one in LAN with that problem
    - Lose connection to certain Servers without being able to reconnect during timeout
    - It doesn't happen as soon as I turn on P2P or have high traffic, but WHEN it happens, it only happens at those times (there is a possiblity that it doesn't happen a whole day which doesn't occure often)

    So, and now to my config:
    Winows 7 x64
    Motherboard: ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi
    Networkcard: Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

    Imageshack, Image Config Basic Network
    I'm connected through a STP-LAN Cable

    I hope you guys can understand my problem and I hope to hear some good advices :D

    If you need more information about my config, just tell me! I will upload another image, I can also give you my .cfg file, but I don't think this will help much (for me, I see only jap. or chinese characters)

    I have the same Ethernet chip as yours, Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller, but from a Gigabyte motherboard.

    Occasionally I encountered problems with transmission and reception errors, which only a reboot would cure it.

    I suppose mine is a hardware problem for an old motherboard, yours might be too. But there is also a small possibility that this controller seems to be prematurely faulty.

    Hey Kiwi, thanks for replying!

    It's a bit sad to hear that this controller might be faulty.

    What I have done now is, I resetted the whole config on my router. (I deleted the data in NVRAM)

    I configurated it so I can have internet, with minimal port forwarding. And Since 2 days straight, I didn't had any disconnects at all!

    To say if this fixed the problem or not is only possible in one week or so. But I'm quite excited, for this could be really the end of my disconnects :D

    Okays, problem not fixed... it might be a bit worse than before, I don't know.

    This sux... losing internetconnection for no obvious reason.
