    i got my WRT54G on Tuesday and since then I have permanent wlan connection problems:
    Sometimes (regularly) the router-wlan-led goes off and the power-led begins to flash and then my notebook loses connection for about 10-15 seconds. After the power-led stopped flashing the wlan-led returns and my notebook reconencts to the router.
    Today i tried transfering some big files in my network, and it just took (max) 30 seconds until the connection broke. Its absolutly reconstructable.
    I tried different firmwares (official linksys eu, alchemy 6.0rc6a, hyperwrt 2.0, official linksys de) and also different channels but it was always the same.
    The router is version 2.2 and i use WPA preshared-key encryption.

    Maybe anyone has a solution or a hint, else i have to send it back.

    Thanks in advance,

    Are you using a P2P like bittorrent. Bittorrent opens a large number of concurrent ports and there is a known problem. You can limit the number of torrents it may help. There was a fix in HyperWRT, but it was removed since it made the WRT54G unstable.
