    I need your help in this case.
    I have two Linksys e3000 and one e3200, all loaded with tomato by shibby v1.28.

    I wanted to setup a meshed network with these three units. Therefore I connected Router A to B, B to C and C to A. Prior to this I enabled STP, disabled WAN, switched to Router-mode and even edited the bridging-priority in CLI (brctl-command). But as soon as the loop was established, all port-LEDs began to flash and the network collapsed. After removing one link everything went fine.

    So there must be a wrong setting or the routers are unable to handle STP properly because these Linksys routers were never itended to be used in meshed networks.
    Any help appreciated!
