    ditto on a stock v3 running version 4.20.7...it's gotta be something with that version, though I don't know where to find older versions of the firmware

    I used to have the same problem with the same firmware. The solution is to check different channels on the router - try 1,6,11 and if they don't work try any of the other channels.
    Don't know if you've done that already but if you did and it still drops maybe you could try and change your MTU size - it does help sometimes.

    Cheers and Happy New Year.

    I'm not running anything on the wireless side of the network. When the net drops, I can log into the router and check the status page to see that the internet is disconnected.

    Unfortunately, Tofu11 is running GL codebase.
    You can adjust it by issuing the following commands from the administration page:

    nvram set clkfreq=216 [enter]
    nvram commit [enter]

    Or you can revert to Tofu9.

    You can also use Thibor's GS codebase, which works flawlessly on the V4 G and the GL. It can be force-loaded onto the V2 through V3.xx G (follow the same directions as for the V4--located inside the forums of hyperwrt.org), but it requires the adjustment (above) to completely correct the file drop problem.

    File drop problems are also seen when noise levels are high, so do be sure to perform a site survey to choose an appropriate channel. Also, you should probably try mixed mode because G-Only mode interprets "B" signals as really loud interference.
