WRT54GS: Constant reboots

    I'm getting very frustrated with this router. I bought it 2 weeks ago and since then have been getting constant reboots with it every 5-6 hours or so. I installed Satori firmware on it yesterday hoping it would help, but it doesn't. I turned on syslog and this is what it shows every so often:

    Code:

    When you flashed your router did you do a Hard reset? (press reset for 30 secs)

    Yep. Not only did I do that, I have since disconnected it from the power supply about a dozen times. That's as hard of a 'hard reset' as it gets :)

    What he meant was did you reset factory defaults after the flash.

    That is harder than as hard as it gets...

    It looks like P2P (emule) connections were responsible for the reboots. The router seems pretty stable after I stopped using it. Can anything be done to solve this problem?

    Shouldn't this be in Satori Forum? Mods... :lol:

    Actually I'm using eMule with the Linksys Firmware and it does the job very well. No reboots & good speed.

    Well, the only reason I went to Satori is because I was initially experiencing the same issues with the native firmware. What's your connection limit in emule? Maybe it's creating too many connections than the router can keep track off...

    I don't really know the Max. Connections for the Router but I think it can handle 520. (Read that somewhere). So I have set the Max. Con in eMule to 250. This way browsing & other stuff isn't affected...
