I am not sure of my problem but let me tell you what's happening. I bought a brand new WRT54GS v6 router from Best Buy about 3 months ago. It's been working fine until a month ago. Every hour or so, my latency just suddenly skyrockets to a point where I cant even load Google on a web browser (not even the router's gateway page), and I have to reset the router to fix it. This happens on both my wired and wireless connections. My ISP changes my WAN IP every few months (static IP) so if I directly connect via the modem, it's the most recent IP they have given me. But if I connect through the router, the WAN IP I have is the one I used to have before for some odd reason (just to clarify, I'm not talking about the LAN 192.168.x.x IP, I know the difference). I'm not sure if this is the problem or not. My router has the latest firmware, and I've tried factory settings many times. My other computers are not hogging bandwidth and I am WEP secure so there are no outside culprits (I can check to see who is connected at any time). I just know that it's not my ISP's problem because I don't have this issue directly connected via my cable modem, but I am if I use my router, and everytime it happens and I reset my router, it fixes it for a few hours.
