    I just installed and set up my new wrt54g v4 w DD-WRT. Everything was working fine. Then last night my internet came to an essential standstill. I wanted to check on the router but couldnt even log in most of the time as the router connection was incredibly slow. I was able to FTP to my xbox w/o a problem, but my xbox was also unable to get on the web or log into KAI.

    I have all of the default setting in DD-WRT, except wireless is disabled and KAI is enabled.

    I typically run shareaza with gnutella, g2, ed2k, and bittorrent connected. I had shut shareaza down to see if it was the problem but that didnt help.

    You must set more connections in ip filter and lower timeouts.
    Many times on forum, try use search.

    I did a search, found a few posts with links to sveasoft, which requires you to pay. I may not be using the right search terms.

    I dont understand what you are telling me. Especially since this is happening w/o p2p running.

    Linksys can keep unused connection open even 4 days (!)
    Then you should configure ip filter ,and maybe qos will be usefull too.

    Try going to:
    Administration > Management
    Scroll down to the 'IP Filter Settings' box
    change the vales to something like:
    Maximum Ports = 4096
    TCP Timeout = 120
    UDP Timeout = 120

    Scroll down, hit save.
    reboot router just for good measure.

    search the forums for things like 'torrent' or 'bittorrent' there are some other good tips out there regarding P2P in general

    As for QoS, I've finally dedicated one old machine to bittorrent/p2p/ftp server, etc and set MAC address priorities so that my other machines have 'Premium' and the p2p machine is 'Bulk' - this seems to work pretty well for me, YMMV.

    Just curious, would it be somehow possible to have to NIC in one machine and use one for p2p and the other for surfing and set MAC priority for the 2 different cards?

    I changed my port settings, so hopefully it helps.
