    Router: WRT54GS v1.1
    Firmware: Linksys Official Firmware v4.70.6 (latest for my router)
    Connection: Wired Ethernet
    BT Software: Azureus

    My router always become unresponsive after 30 mins or so of bit torrent, even after I close the BT application. The only way to solve this problem is to reset the router.

    I tried with only one downloading torrent, limited the # of connections to no more than 100, and capped the upload speed to 50% of my maximum upload speed. The router would still become unresponsive after an hour. The problem persists even after I closed the BT application (Azureus) completely.

    This problem didn't happen as often (once a day instead of once per hour) when I was using an older firmware and a ethernet card (wired) instead of the onboard LAN port that I am using now.

    Now I guess the best I can do is to try another firmware.

    Can someone suggest a 3rd party firmware that's the most stable for bittorent and gives the best performance overall?

    Extra features is not my main concern. I am satistfied with the functions that come with the official firmware, except that it doesn't have static DHCP. I just want a firmware that's stable and performs well in most circumstances. Any help is appreciated~!

    Steve, thanks for your suggestion.... but I am still a bit confused

    Do I just install Thibor, or are there some additional tweakings for BT stability?

    What are the differences between HyperWRT, tofu, and Thibor?
