    I have the linksys WRT54g, and the Dell truemobile internal wireless built into my Dell laptop.

    One day my laptop lost connection to the router and since then its been iffy. I tried reseting the router and upgrading the firmware and nothing has fixed the problem. Once in a while it will connect to the router then if I unplug my laptop from one of the ports the speed will go down to 1 or 2 mbs a second then finally lost connection all together.

    What can I do to fix this?

    And I want to use a third party firmware. Which ones do you suggest?

    I just loaded dd-wrt on the router? How do I get to the settings?

    I found out how to get into the "settings" page.

    My laptop connected to the wireless then when I got back from shopping it was discconected and as im typing this it connected back again.

    I have a laptop that seems to prefer wpa2/aes over wpa. WPA will connect, but it falls off occasioanlly. It's got one of those intel pro wireless thingy's.

    Yes, I said a "thingy".

    I think I got it fixed.

    I updated the driver for my laptop wireless card.

    As soon as it was finished updating it connected right up to the router, and it did the same after I restarted the laptop.
