    I am currently running v1.21 on my WRT54GL but since around 1.18 or 1.19 I have had an annoying problem that I just cannot seem to get to the bottom of I have reset and reflashed the router but the issue is still there.

    The issue is that I live in the country and due to overhead power lines we get quite a few power brown outs or period where the power fails for a few minutes then returns. Now in theory what should happen is that the router fails when the power returns the router should reboot and reconnect which it does I can get out to the internet OK. However port forwarding does not seem to come back up correctly so I cannot get back from the internet in to my mail system, voip etc. There is nothing showing in the log files that would indicate any issues to even give me a clue of what the issue could be. The only way I have found to resolve this is to unplug both the netgear (DG632) modem and the WRT, leave them for 10 seconds then plug them back in and the problem goes away until the next power outage......

    Anybody having similar issue or any ideas how to fix this? It is worth noting that I think it is something to do with Tomato or it's configuration as I used stock linksys f/w for a week where I know there was at least 2 outages and each time everying worked fine once the router rebooted......

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice....

    I have seen where short power bumps can leave a router in a bad state. I now have a UPS to protect from power outages.
