|Hello everyone. I have a WRT54GS v6 which I recently put DD-WRT, and configured as a repeater bridge to my house's WiFi. The bridge connects two clients (and XBox 360 and a PC). The issue is that periodically one of the LAN ports on the router will disconnect. Usually it happens specifically to the PC, but it has happened to the XBox. When the computer indicates that the connection has closed, I check out the router and the light for the port on which the computer is connected will be blinking about once a second. If I unplug the cable on that port, the blinking ceases. If I then plug the cable into another port, that port's light then begins to blink at the same pace.
Power cycling the router resolves the problem, but it recurs often.
I do not have anything special going on with this router. No quotas, no firewall, just the vanilla install plus repeater bridge mode.
Does anyone have any advice regarding this issue?
