Thank for bringing this up kikapoo
I have exactly the same problem with my Linksys WRT54G2!
I did 30/30/30 reset BEFOR and AFTER.
Tried different versions of the DD-WRT. No effect. Eventually gets stuck on 1-2Mbps! Reset helps only momentarily.
Correctly running micro - build 12874 setup in Repeater Bridging mode with 2 other routers running DD-WRT in Bridging mode all connected to Netgear WNDR3300 build 12533 _________________ My DD-WRT Routers:
Netgear WNDR3300, Linksys WRT54G2, Asus WL-520GU, Dell TrueMobile 2300, Belkin F5D7230-4 v1444
next is whether tx 28 is too low a power or something?
lastly i did site survey and there was only 2 other networks in the site survey, both on channel 6 while my router was on channel 1. 11 previously.
Hmmm, my WRT54G2 v1 still does this from time to time. So do my main 2 routers (WRT54GS v6 and WRT54G v2). I think it's just interference from various neighbours, not sure yet though, going to have to keep an eye on it. Luckily most of my stuff is ethernet-connected, i had a pig of a game getting one of my laptops connected this morning, turned out the main router was on 2mbps - upped the TX power (from 2 to 56mW for a few seconds, that somehow put it back to 54mbps, put it back to 28mW and all's still well, laptop connecting fine now.
Will have to keep an eye though as had this problem yesterday morning though i hadn't checked the router, it must've resolved itself, hence why i think it's just interference.
What i do know for a fact is that i didn't ever have this problem on v23 sp2 (the only other builds i've used on my routers before recently moving them all to EKO 12548)... _________________ 2 node (v23 sp2) WDS network over WPA2/AES comprising 2x Buffalo WHR-G54S's.
thanks creaky and idmitriy for the responses and acknowledgement.
Yesternight, I switched the Transmission Fixed Rate to 18mbps because somehow I suspect that too high a value / auto will screw the router up, and since my internet won't be able to utilize the full speed, I went ahead and lowered it.
Setting 18mbps as the speed somehow stablized my connection, been up for 1 full day now without any rate drops, been doing regular interval test on speedtest to make sure.
Don't take my words for it, but guys with the same problem and don't mind lowering the transmision rate can try setting the Tranmission Fixed Rate from Auto to 18Mbps, other speeds might work but not too sure.
I'm gonna post back again if everything screws up for me.
