    Hello guys!!

    I am having problms with my Xbox Media Center Dropping connection after about 45 minutes
    of streaming a movie. (form my laptop to my Xbox). If I do any other things like Torrent downloading or web surfing it drops the connection to my xbox.

    How much does WPA2 add to overhead of a network? I would run WEP but it is easily
    cracked today.

    Config and Equipment:
    Wrt54gv4 running Viteks Tomato Mod V1.22.8500ND (Main ROuter)
    P-330w (Wireless Bridge for Xbox)
    Laptop with Wifi Link 5100 AGN card (where movies are stored)

    Security WPA2 AES

    Please help guys.

    I don't have any experience with the hardware you're using, but try to eliminate variables one by one to find out where the problem lies.

    i.e. If you suspect that WPA2 might be responsible, temporarily get rid of it, use WEP and see what happens - or even no encryption at all.

    However, if it works OK for 45 minutes, seems like something is slowly degrading - something running out of resources, a memory leak, too many connections filling up - whatever.
