I have 3 whr-hp-g54 routers running dd-wrt.v23 SP1 in wds mode. Security is turned off on clients and no Encryption. Here is my setup:
wds1 is connected to the internet with static IP and ant. is on 100 ft tower. wds2 is 4.5 miles away on water tower with clear line of site. wds3 is 1500 ft from wds2 with clear line of site. Signal levels on the 4.5 link is 50% or better and wds3 signal level is 80%. When the connection is working it is super fast.
The problem will pop up and web pages will time out, ping times are around 2234 between wds3 and wds1. One thing I have noticed when the problem starts is if I ssh into wds3 and wds2 and type in route the default route takes forever to come up. When the system is working it is instant. The problem might last from 1 minute to hours and then it will start working again.
I have tried everything I know (which is not very much) and it has me stumped.
Anyone have a clue as to what I need to look for?

I have noticed that my available memory diminishes over time, until reboot. About a 6 day cycle. Have you taken notice of how much memory is free at different times of operation ? It is just a wild guess, I have no idea if it might be an issue.
