    I'm on Victek's 1.23.85 ND.

    The unit just freezes randomly. But the PPPoE doesn't drop according to the Connection Uptime. What irritates me though is that when I'm hosting Warcraft III games, the unit hangs and everyone gets kicked out of the game.

    I tried to do an nvram erase and even shifted to DD-WRT but it's still there.

    Since it happens on both Tomato and DD-WRT you may have a hardware issue. Or it could be the power supply.

    Really? Oh snap. It took me forever to look for this unit. :( And it's the only one at the store!

    try going into your computer network card settings
    look for winns and check and see if netbois over tcp/ip is enabled
    instead of default.. let us know if that works but, really show some respect next time

    When it freezes does the wrt54gl stop responding to admin logins and ssh?

    are you certain it's the router freezing and not the connection supplied by the modem? i.e. do pings to your router's LAN ip still come through when you lag?

    as you're on a pppoe connection, i'm assuming you have adsl or something and those lines can be victim to crosstalk, causing certain "hiccups" for several seconds and sometimes random disconnections.

    Oops sorry for the delayed reply. Been busy much with work.

    So yeah, I figured its about my power supply. Apparently, a rat destroyed my extension cord so the router's getting unstable power. Anyway thanks for the replies. Appreciate it. :biggrin:
