Hey guys. Im new to these forums. Sorry if this has been posted before, however, I already have searched and none of the solutions have helped me. So here is my problem. I am running ddwrt on my router and i am using it as a repeater bridge.
and on pretty much 30 minute intervals, i lose connection for a split second. this is not a problem for surfing but when playing online games such as WoW, or starcraft and whatnot, i get disconnected instantly, it doesn't even try or lag me for a few seconds. But heres the weirdest part. when i connect to the original router, i dont get and DCs.
heres what i've done from reading these boards.
- Ive upped my UDP and TCP timeout
- Ive updated the firmware
- I've switched routers (my previous router running dd-wrt has this same problem, a Netgear WNDR3300)
also, i do not get any transmit errors when i check its wireless status and These disconnection problems occur to all devices connected to the router (2 computers). What really confuses me is that it happens on 30 minute intervals.. exactly. not randomly.
Thanks in advance!! if someone really helps me n fixes this, i might Paypal em a dollar or two haha as this will sove a lot of my problems.

Your WIFI client should keep a list of approved stations which you have connected to before. If so then the client will periodically disconnect and look for them before re-connecting. It should be called something like "preferred networks". Delete everything except the one you use.
Since its a repeater bridge, turn off all the logging, CRON, etc - all that stuff, to preserve memory
Try that out and see if it helps with keeping connected _________________ Soylent Green Is People !

thanks for the help! unfortuneately, it did not work even after trying the other firmware. this is driving me insane just the fact that it stays connected to the first router yet 2 bridges have this problem
