    I just treid to stream some video from my PC via the WRT54G v3.1 to my Xbox360. However at random times the networks breaks down, the Xbox360 disconnects from XboxLive and the PC (using a WUSB54GP) also looses connection.

    I've no idea what causes this since it does not happen when surfing or using the XboxLive service. Even P2P is working. But this video streaming brings the network down. It worked a few weeks ago though. But today it did not.

    I thought about trying another firmware (my WRT54G is still running the official Linksys one) but haven't done that yet.

    Any ideas???

    easiest is probably trying a new or upgraded firmware. Othewise you could try changing QOS or the MTU settings to see if that helps. This might take a while to tweak

    Well I was puzzled because it worked already, first time today I had this. And not once, but three times. Seems the network is unstable today ;-) Seems heavy load brings it down, but has not until today.

    Only thing changes since it worked, I switched to static IPs and no longer use DHCP. Can this be the cause???

    I'm running the latest LinkSys firmware already. I thought of flashing DD-WRT and test that. Good idea?

    QoS is disabled (always has been) and MTU is auto (1492).

    I don't get this. Tried again today and cannot provoke that error. Working good so far. I've no idea why this is so strange sometimes. Several days it works great, then you've one day full off problems and then it works great again. But you haven't changed a thing - mysterious WiFi. :eek:
