    Hey folks!

    I have a WRT54G v.4 with the latest Official Firmware installed. My question is this, I have a PC connected wirelessly that I use strictly for my p2p apps (Azureus, to be specific). I also have a PC connected via ethernet that runs as a file/web server. Right now, though, I'm finding that I have to reboot the router every few days or the damned thing starts lagging badly and seems as though it's locked up. I've done a bit of research online into this and it seems that this is not an uncommon problem with Linksys routers and p2p apps. A number of possible resolutions seem to all point at threads/connections that have been abandoned by my apps but not by the router. Unfortunately the firmware does not have a built in option to adjust the TTLs. So... what do you folks suggest?
    I'm leaning towards chucking the official firmware and slapping Hyper or DD-WRT into the thing, but I'm not really keen on doing that if I absolutely don't have to...
