    I have DSL, so I'm using PPoE on my wan port. 5-6 times a day at least my net connection drops out completly on all wired and wireless clients. I have been trying to track down some circumstance that could be trigger it with no avail. I am running a WRT54G with the latest stock linksys firmware (4.20.7 I think...). Any idea as to what might be causing the connection drop? TIA

    DITTO here

    I bought my WRT54G v2.2 about a year ago and had this problem FROM THE START.

    I have Charter cable intnernet service. My internet would work just fine for about 4 hours, then the WRT54G would drop the connection. I could still access the router from wired/wireless machines but the router had just dropped the internet connection. SO, I'd have to go under "status" and release/renew DHCP and it would reconnect to the internet. I upgraded to the latest Linksys firmware to no avail, so I gave up and disabled DHCP on the router and used it JUST as a WAP sitting under my Netgear RP-614 .

    Over Thanksgiving I bought a cheap laptop with wireless G built-in at walmart (yes, the fabled hp ze2308wm, that caused the customer riots) and so I thought, "I think I'll try to fix that Linksys router downstairs."

    I installed the latest version of Alchemy (which seems cool, I've boosted the xmit power for a better signal) and everything is nice EXCEPT I still have the SAME disconnecting problem!

    Does ANYONE know how to fix this?
