    First of all let me describe you my setup...

    I have a WRT54G v3.1 router and using Tomato 1.14 firmware. I got total 4Pcs connected at the moment with the router. 3 of them are wireless and one is using ethernet wire.

    Problem: Internet stop working for few minutes randomly on any pc and it starts working again after 5mins. Strange thing is that if one of network pc stop working than at the same time if you use other network pc you'll see browsing will be working as normal and it keeps on circulating....sometime it happens after hrs or sometimes it just die after 30mins or so...

    First i was using DD-WRT and this problem presist but now i have shifted from dd-wrt to tomato but problem seems to be there..Today i flashed my router to Latest firmware of tomato but still same thing.....

    Please help me out guys, this thing is getting on my nerves.

    3 Pcs Using WindowsXp
    1Pc using Vista.

    check how long does your router assign its IP addresses using the DHCP. A 1-5 minutes of no connection might be:
    - refreshing the IP (check DHCP lease time)
    - losing wireless connection (try different canals, 1 or 6 or 11)
    Does the wired PC ever show such a problem or just the wireless clients?
    if you type "ipconfig /all" in a command window during those times, what happens?
    What is the wireless status during those times?
