    I dont know if this makes sense or not but every time I upgrade Tomato firmware I lose my wireless network connectivity whenever my cordless phone gets a call. Yes I know the phone interferes w/the wireless frequency but eventually maybe after a couple of weeks the problem disappears. Its almost like the firmware "learns" and adjust on its own!

    My suggestion is to make it so that the channel the router runs on and the channel the phone runs on are as far apart as possible. To change the channel the router operates on, look in Basic > Network > Wireless. Notice the scan button, which can be helpful in keeping some distance in between your WiFi network and your neighbors' as well.

    Yes, because the firmware "learns" and adjust on its own,
    It will find a clear channal itself away from your neighbour.

    Somehow, I don't think it really does that. Does it?

    It probably does, if its getting high noise on one channel it can scan to find a less noisy channel, and then if the channel is set to Auto it will tell all of its clients to move channels.

    Some routers have the ability to autosense but none of the 3rd party firmware do it that i am aware of, though it is a feature built into most wireless cards. Now back to the phone issue, i used to experience this whenever my phone was fully charged, if left off the base for a couple days and when the phone charged dropped to about half, my disconnection issues would go away. A few ways around it are, new phone, position the old base and phone so that it is not in between the computer and the AP or as if in my case just do your best to keep the phone not fully charged.

    Yeah, I'm using 1.07 and I just checked, but there was no option for auto-channel selecting. One thing to note if there's a Wii in the house, it doesn't support channels above 11. This may be true of other devices as well, but I know this to be true with the Wii from experience.
