    Okay, I'm running the following setup..

    Linksys WRT54G v1.1, Firmware v4.30.1, HyperWRT 2.1b1 +tofu13c
    Linksys Wireless-B USB Network Adapter v2.8
    Windows XP
    BitComet(first) / Azureus(2nd preference)

    I have the following in my startup script:
    echo 16384 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses
    echo "600 600 120 60 120 120 10 60 30 120" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeouts

    I've used both the official and third party firmware, with and without startup scripts, i've tried adjusting the "ip_conntrack_max" and second number in the "ip_conntrack_tcp_timeouts" to 600/1800/3600, and none of it seems to make a difference. I always disconnect at a random time from the network.

    Other computers on my network can carry on as usual, but only my computer's wireless disconnects, and i have to reboot my PC to reconnect.

    I feel like i've tried everything, and i can't figure out what is going wrong!

    Really hope someone here can help me, it would be much appreciated if this problem can be fixed.

    How many simultaneous connections are you allowing in your BitTorrent client? You could be simply overloading your wireless card (forcing it to manage too many connections).

    I have it on "Auto" in bitcomet, which usually connects to ~40 peers, and ~12 seeds, from experience.

    Only 1 torrent running.

    Is the problem my router, or the wireless adaptor?

    Hard to say. I've never used BitTorrent over WiFi.

    I do know that BitComet is frequently reported as being the hardest on network connections. Try running pure Azureus, and limit your total connections to somewhere around 100, and see if that helps.

    Do you have any updated drivers available for your wireless card? Can't hurt...

    DD-WRT and most firmware limit you to entering a number no higher than 4,096. I would not recommend using 16,384 I have no idea what that would do. Does the router even have enough RAM for a table that large?

    Beyond that, hook up same PC on wired and run BT. If it works fine, then you might look at the problem being your CLIENT adapter or driver eh? I mean if wired users notice no trouble maybe the problem is not the router..... In particular if wired clients keep working fine after the client is crashing, then I would say the router is fine.

    I sometimes have had to fix "broken networks" where the problem was the $10 bargain-table network card in the $2,000 PC, driver issues, settings, etc.
