    I have a few questions about this issue:

    1)how do i know if its occuring? Does it occur in all versions of this router, without exception? I think its happening for me because all the sudden utorrent and other p2p apps, as well as my internet will slow to a crawl and i have to reset the router and modem.

    2)i have the wrtp54g version, but i dont see directions for that...what can i do?

    3)is it likely to ruin my router even if i do it right? How high are the chances for success?

    4)can anyone help me do this more easily...those directions are kind of confusing and i know ill mess it up.

    Thanks alot...any other tips would be appreciated too. Also, I am not using a wireless connection, and im not using the VoiP function, im only using it as a firewall.

    Post in one, wait for an answer.

    Or use the search button.

    If you want guarantees that you won't brick your router loading alternate firmware, you won't find them. There is some element of risk.

    I'll repeat my usual advice that best results with P2P on the network are obtained by FIRSTLY examining your P2P setup and see if it's well setup and configured. Refer to all available docs and FAQ for the P2P *software*.

    It can be helpful also to mess with the router, but in my experience this is a lesser factor. Your $1,000 PC can easily overwhelm a $50 router no matter what fiddling you do on the router if it's ill-behaved. So start with the P2P config. That is all.

    Well, i did look at all the docs for my software, did all my port forwarding, and alot of the time, it runs fine. But utorrents FAQ says this is a common problem in this type of router, and you have to get a special firmware, which is easy...except for it seems no one has the VoiP version.

    Its said that if you have alot of connections open, it hangs, slowing your internet and dls to a crawl so you have to reset. And its happening to me, heh.

    thanks vincent

    Then go into the Admin page n your firmware, which you didn't name, and if there are settings to raise number of connections then change them.

    Number of connections: 4096
    idle timeouts: 1200

    Try that and see how it goes.

    Those options arent in the page.

    The firmware im using is 1.00.60.

    thank you

    Oh I see. Then you're screwed. I thought maybe that P was typo. WRTP54G is one of the models for which there are no choices other than Linksys firmware.

    Router Locking up with P2P

    I am having the same issue with uTorrent and the WRTP54G.
    Here is What I am doing to troubleshoot the issue:
    1. I just lowered the Default MTU from 1500 to 1492
    Try this list of values, one value at a time, in
    this order:

    Manually configure the TCP/IP with a DNS address provided by your ISP.

    Force your Ethernet adapter to 10Mbps or half duplex mode, and turn off the “Auto-negotiate†feature of your
    Ethernet adapter. Assuming you are not connected via wireless.
