WRT54GX2 cannot hold a wireless connection

    I noticed that during heavy download/upload traffic from a wired PC (to switch) I lose my wireless connection almost all together. It will drop for 30 seconds at a time and as frequent as every 5 seconds. When I stop my wired PC from downloading the wireless laptop never loses the connection.

    What the hell is wrong with this router? Can it not handle moderate traffic AND a laptop wireless connection at the same time? Is this thing overheating?

    Any help would be great; I am about to chuck this sucker out the window. :)

    Me Too!

    I have had exact same problems with GX1 and GX4 models...but I don't think it is always related to heavy downloads...also occurs when just 2 laptops are working the wireless connection by easy browsing.

    The GX4 would not work at all until I turned off the firewall.

    They have great range and speed but are just plain flakey in keeping the router/access point operational. That new firmware better get here quick to fix these darn things. :drinking: They are driving me to drink (even more than usual).
