WRT54GL + Tomato WDS Links Go Down - Reboot Required

    I have been struggling getting a WDS setup to run reliably.

    I have a total of 5 routers in the WDS + AP setup.

    All routers running Tomato Firmware v1.25.1720

    It seems that at random, one router in the group will lock up. Not necessarily freeze, but the WDS link will not pass traffic to the next router in the chain. I am forced to physically reboot the last router I can get to in the chain. So say I can reach .04, but not .06, I have to manually reboot .06 to get the WDS to start passing traffic down the chain. It seems to happen randomly to all devices, but rarely the ethernet connected gateway (duh.)

    I have the routers set up in a line.

    10.0.0.2 is the first, and Gateway router. It links via AP + WDS to 10.0.0.4 via AP + WDS, which links to 10.0.0.6, which links to 10.0.0.8

    The Gateway (10.0.0.2) is setup like this:
    Name First Router
    Model Linksys WRT54G/GS/GL

    The second router (10.0.0.4) in the setup is:
    System

    ----------

    10.0.0.6-.10 are similiar to router 2, 10.0.0.4

    ----------

    Has anyone seen this problem, or have any ideas how I can fix it?

    I am using WPA Personal with TKIP due to a device that does not support AES.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
