    One of my laptops has a strange problem. Even if the laptop is sitting right next to the router, the laptop's wireless connection randomly dies and won't connect again for another 5-10 minutes. During this time, it is unable to acquire an IP address from the router, and the computer reports limited connectivity. The laptop has the latest drivers available. Tomato has been told to assign it an IP based on its MAC address via Static DHCP. Anyone know what's going on?

    Oh, and another problem on another computer. Port forwarding works for it for a few minutes, then after a while, the program reports that the port is not forwarded anymore.
