    My WRT54G crashes every 5-10mins when in use, I cannot finish a download nor keep a constant connection. Usually it just times out for a second or two and recconects (freezing your downloads or anything), but sometimes it just stops alltogether and requires me to unplug/replug the Router and Modem, sometimes it needs a total PC restart alltogether. I am wired into to it, not wireless, but it happens to the wireless connection as well. What is the deal? I can never manage to finish a download over 35mb, or run an online application. How can this be fixed?

    WRT54G v.3 // Firmware Version : v4.00.5

    Thank you for your concerns.

    firstly you should upgrade your firmware to the newest available to eliminate possible firmware bugs.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply here as well. I was curious to know if you thought I should download the Firmware via Linksys.com or try your HyperWRT. Also, what are the advantages I would find due to your HyperWRT?

    Thanks again.
