Greetings! I have a WRT54GL running the Teddy Bear mod for Tomato (R47, kernel 2.6, MIPSR1), and I am experiencing very high wireless pings when the router is under heavy load. BitTorrent is the chief culprit, but long-term downloads do this as well. My apartment is an even 72Â°F. The router is in a well-ventilated location. The router's xmit power is 42mW. I only have four QoS rules; only one is IPP2P. I'm running channel 2; the closest (weak) routers are on 1 and 4. I don't own a microwave. I have identical results on Broadcom, Atheros and Ralink chipsets. Security is 63-character WPA2 AES. When left alone, the router pings approximately 1ms, but the pings under heavy traffic are as high as 400 or 500. You can imagine what this does to games and web browsing. I'll be more than happy to dump my router's configuration or try various settings. For the record, my personal OS is Windows 7 Professional X64, and my network card is a D-Link DWA-552 (Atheros AR5008).
