    i just flashed my 3 routers to 1.19, but my wireless is very unstable
    i get disconnects every 1-5 minutes over wireless
    after that i have to wait for 1 minute or so, before i can reconnect
    (unable to connect to "my network")
    wired over wds doesn't seem to hasve any problems
    i have a cablemodem, with 1 wrt54gs as router, and 2 wrt54gs setup as wds

    ps: i did not erase nvram

    Were you upgrading from an older Tomato or coming from a different firmware. The Tomato FAQ states you don't need to reset nvram unless indicated in the release notes (v1.19 does not) or unless switching from a different firmware. Sounds like I have a somewhat similar network to yours and my WDS is very stable now. I'll attach my as-of-today network diagram so you can compare. Note the form of encryption I'm using as that seemed to be a key element in achieving stability, at least in my case.

    Many people do an nvram reset as a matter of fact after updating Tomato firmware to a newer version, even though you shouldn't have to. And it's recommended after flashing if you notice problems to cut down on the amount of time spent troubleshooting a particular issue.

    My wireless is without problems with 1.19 and works flawlessly, and I'm using WPA2 with AES encryption. Try changing your's to see if you notice any difference, and you might also try using a different channel.
