    I have a problem I can't figure out after flashing a friends WRT54G v. 2 with Thibor 15C. The problem is the wireless connection drops out about every 2 minutes. This happens for all wireless devices connected, but the connection through the ethernet port seems uneffected. This was the first time firmware other than stock has been installed on this router. I followed all of the rules for flashing and I've done this with another G v2 and two other GS routers without any problems.

    The router ran fine for the first two days before becoming unstable, and had no previous problems. After the problem arose I cleared the nvram and reloaded the settings but that didn't help. Reseting by holding the reset button down for 30 seconds didn't work, neither did rebooting the modem. I then cleared the nvram again and reinstalled the latest linksys firmware and the problem still exists, wireless devices cannot be connected for more than 2 minutes before dropping out. The only settings I changed with the 15C firmware were the wireless security settings, I didn't mess with the power output or anything else. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this, I'd like to just get it working properly with the stock firmware and not mess with it anymore. I've read about a similar problem with G v.2.2 routers, but not 2.0, that had to do with overclocking. Would the overclock fix possibly work in this situation?

    Same happening to me. Lose all internet connectivity to the ethernet cable modem. DHCP release/renew doesnt retrieve the ip address.

    Have cleared NVRAM etc. Only solution is the cold start the cable modem and renew the ip. works then.

    No real pattern to the dropouts, happened when torrenting, retrieving emails and regular surfing.

    Only started happening with Thibor 15c, the previous version worked fine.

    Using WRT54G 1.1

    There has been several posts about this but no solution yet.

    jabba: that's not the same as you. you are referring to losing internet connection via your modem.

    I would check that all the network card drivers on all your clients are up to date.
    If they are, try re-install them. (Possibly try change the position of your router.) (Make sure you have no 2.4 Ghz cordless phones near.)
