    I encounter small problem with my WRT54GL router with Tomato firmware 1.21. Router is connected to Internet via Cable modem. I have 3 devices connected to this router - all of them via wireless connection. On one laptop (Windows XP Professional) I have FTP server (guildftp) plus emule and I think that's all. On other laptop there is Windows Vista Basic and I’m using this for simple internet - www, IM. And third device is Iphone, which is connected all the time, but data transmission is used only occasionally. No firewalls installed and active on any of the laptops. On one I have local, polish, arcabit antivirus software, on second home version of Avast. Nothing else. I’m having this configuration for some time, but I remember when I had other PC with Windows XP and Windows Vista Basic – it was exactly the same ( I had them only for a while, so I didn’t think about that at all)
    And the problem i have is with transfer data between laptops – I’m trying to download anything from laptop with Windows XP, through FTP using Total Commander I get transfer at 5 KB/s – and it takes ages to download anything. Pinging each computer causes about 1/3 of pings not to be returned. PCs are close to router, from both of his sides. Connection to Internet works perfectly fine – on both laptops I get full Cable modem speed, downloading and WWW works fantastic. Only transferring data between PC’s is awfully slow.
    How I can diagnose what is a problem? What i can do to transfer data not using usb flash drive?

    Try a different channel, and check all your setups on Tomato and the PCs are correct. It sounds like you have interference, or your PCs are just too far from the router.
