    First I want to thank BrainSlayer for the great firmware - really impressed with what I can do with the WRT54G thanks to DD-WRT!

    I just setup my router yesterday - successfully flashed DD-WRT v22r2. I set it up and got all the functionality working great - sshd, pptp - very happy. Tested ssh & VPN from outside the router today while at work - used it all day without a problem.

    Came home tonight - connected with my laptop wirelessly and have had alot of problems with the router becoming unresponsive intermittently. I've tried disabling the pptp server to save some CPU cycles - no joy. Also tried power cycling the router & cable modem several times - still get the dropouts.

    I realize v22r2 is stable - so I'm surprised I'm having this problem. I'm running a looping ping on the router and it seems to go down about every 5 minutes - stays down for about 2 minutes - repeats the cycle (the timing isn't exact every time though).

    During the down times the Power LED is solid so I don't think the router is rebooting or anything.

    Figured I'd post here since my searches didn't turn up any issues like this with v22r2. Maybe I should just reflash the firmware? Or give v23 a try when it settles down a bit?

    Thanks in advance for any help - just found this site last week and I'm very impressed with the wealth of information here.

    Enable full logging and check if anything is interesting in the log. I use WallWatcher so it is easier to see/filter/archive logging data.

    I use 22r.2 on WRT54G v2.0 and WRT54GS v.2.1 (for WDS) without any problems. I did confiure main router to reboot every night since once in a while it would get slower..

    Well before I dig into the logs I decided last night to reset the firmware to defaults and redo my settings. Since then it seems to be running fine. Seemed like all the flakiness started once I got home and connected wirelessly - odd.

    I'll monitor it and if it acts up again I'll dig into the logs (took a look at WallWatcher - great tool - thanks).

    Looking forward to the release of v23 - looks like some great features are coming (the router stability is critical for my wife who works from home so playing with the beta builds is not an option).
