    I recently bought a WRT54G to use as a router between my cable modem and a computer and VOIP-box. I keep having the same problem all the time no matter what I do. I've tried using alchemy and DD-WRT with the same result as with linksys firmware.

    The problem is that after approximately 12 h the router freezes and I loose the internet connection on both the computer and the VOIP-box. in order to get the connection back and need to unplug the power from the router and plug it back in. At least the problem was this "simple" for about a month. The last week it's been getting worse. Now the router refuses to get an IP from my ISP for a couple of hours but then resumes to work after pulling the power again.

    I'm using the router on the "automatic dhcp"-setting acquiring the IP from my cable modem. The computer and VOIP-box is set at two fixed internal IPs that don't expire (wired through MAC). I'm not using P2P so the problem is not caused by too many connections being kept in memory. I've tried resetting to factory defaults without any change in behavior.

    What else can I try? Should I send back the router to the store and get a new through warranty or could it be a setting somewhere?

    crap! I flashed the router with the latest linksys-firmware but couldn't get an ip from my ISP with that either, so I reflashed with DD-WRT v22 r2. The flash went good and I made all my configurations on the router. I could still not get an ip so I made a reset by pressing the reset-button 30 s while powering up and then doing a power cycle.

    Now I can't get any contact with the router at all. It doesn't respond to ping or anything. I've tried using tftp but it can't get any contact either.

    Does anyone have a clue about what happened?
