    I have a problem with my wireless LAN.
    I have a WRT53G v3.1 with the Wireless Network Monitor v.4.2 and the original firmware. On my computer I've got a WUSB54G with the latest drivers. It works like a charm, that is, until I start downloading something with bit torrent. I keep losing my internet connection, and it happens at a random time pattern. I can download without problems for an hour or more (not so often), or the connection drops after five to twenty minutes (more often).
    I then have to Repair the connection via the Windows Wireless Network Connection.
    There are no portable phones in the house, and I have changed the channel to 1, as my neighbour uses 11.
    Normal surfing, no problems, and the same with Skype.
    Any ideas? Do I have to configure something particular in the router that will makes bit torrent more stable?

    Oh, also, I tried to upgrade the firmware in the router, but it wouldn't let me. It kept saying No Contact With The Server, or something.

    Thanks for any help! :)

    Edit: Fixed it! I finally got the firmware upgraded to the latest version, and then I turned off the SPI firewall. So it's one or both of those changes that took care of my problem.

    The latest versions of HyperWRT have "frequent TCP cleanup" There's also a startup script you can use on Linksys firmware too. I forgot what it was, but it is in one of the stickies over at the forums of hyperwrt.org.
