    I have the WRT54GL with SP2 final. I am having an issue where the router will stop receiving packets for about 30 seconds to a minute. If I select the status of the connection receiving packet numbers do not increase for about 30 seconds sometimes more.

    I can't bring up a web page, send an email etc (I get you are not connected to the internet message a lot). This delay is long enough to drop my wireless connection as well. Has anyone seen this before and have any suggestions?

    My network setup is computer ->modem -> wrt54gl-> RT31P2

    Try a hardware reset on the router - using the push button at the back. Push the button for a full thirty seconds with the power on, then pull the power while continuing to press the reset button (another 30 seconds) and then plug the power back in keeping the reset button depressed (a final 30 seconds). This works for me. Sometimes failing to do a full hardware reset after a flash can result in unpredicatable behaviour from the router.

    You'll have to re-enter your settings.
