    hey guys. i need some help.

    I have the WRT54GX4 SRX400 router and for some reason, the wired connection likes to drop out every now and then and I don't know why.

    Other than wireless security and router security, all settings are default. I also have the 1.00.20 (newest) firmware.

    I can best describe it as this. I have AOL Instant Messenger running the background whenever I'm doing something. It likes to lose connection and sign off but immediately after several seconds reconnects.

    Same thing happens when I play games online. I don't know if this affects my other roomates. My PC is connected by either a 25 or 50 ft cable (I haven't taken the time to guesstimate properly). COuld it be that there's loss in the cable because it's too long/not CAT6 or whatever it is? I have Optimum cable and just had it repaired because we lost service for a day and know that is not the issue.

    We used this router in my home home until my dad upgraded and it sat in the basement and never had this issue

    Any help = appreciated.
